My most recent review was on the iOS Agricola release. I have been happily playing a game a day ever since. I recently started the solo series and discovered something very, very cool that I have to share. I personally have never played the board game by myself. But I do know fellow gamers who [...]

Starting last night at 11pm Eastern Standard Time, i’ve been a tad bit addicted to playing the much anticipated Playdek release of Agricola for iOS.

Review by Chad Adams If there is one up and coming iOS developer to watch, it’s Playdek. This “hottness” company keeps cranking out great looking iOS card game apps that deliver quality in artistic design and playability. Their earlier successes include Ascension and Food fight.

Pool Break – By Kinetic Bytes I just stumbled across this game in the app store and I think it’s amazing! Yes there are dozens of 3D pool games already, but this game runs blazing fast on my iPhone. And best of all it comes with Crokinole! a board gamer favorite. This game loads fast, [...]
