Okay, it’s mid-March 2020, and it looks like my weekly boardgaming group is shutting down for the foreseeable future due to coronavirus concerns. So we’re looking to keep things going online on the meantime. What are people’s opinions of the various digital boardgames? We probably prefer mobile versions to PC/Steam and about half of us are each on ios/android, so cross-play is ideal, but I’m sure this thread will be of interest to more than just me so if you’ve played anything in this realm, this is the thread for it. Also, bonus points for asynch play with notifications!
We were playing the old Avalon Hill Titan port on Android a few months back, but it seems like they just shut the servers down at one point? That was a bummer.
I just went looking and downloaded Castles of Burgundy, an older Stefan Feld point salad game. I took a read through the rules pdf and then the tutorial, and played a sample game against the AI. Seems solid, and supposedly supports crossplay, asynch, etc. Another friend grabbed it and we’ll try for a game later. Opinions?
