Do you see that Le Havre screenshot up there and think, "Gah, who could ever make sense of that jumble?" If so, this hard-to-learn/hard-to-master brain bender about not getting what you want might be a bit much for you..

Oh, looks a bit like Kontor.

I think there needs to be a kickstarter campaign to get Tom an iPad. Can't let his eyes get bad from staring at teeny tiny icons and text on his "iPhone."

I can't read your message, as I have gone blind from trying to tell whether that tiny icon is coal or iron.

I Googled Kontor, but only found a game without screenshots. :(

Looks like ipad Puerto Rico to me.

Are you seriously playing these games on an iPod? Mr. Chick, love your reviews, but I feel like reviewing an iOS game on an iPod is like reviewing an FPS on a 7" netbook. Yes you can assess game mechanics, story, AI, etc. But so much of the experience is the interface. For example, I love Ascension on the iPad, but I find it unplayable on anything smaller.

There needs to be a kickstarter campaign to get Tom some human beings to play boardgames with him.

Not quite the iPod, but certainly the iPhone. :) My feeling is that if they release them on the iPhone, I'll play then on the iPhone!

And, really, I find Ascension and Le Havre perfectly playable. It's just not nearly as smooth as the experience would be with a larger screen.
