Roll the dice! 10 board games for iPhone, iPad, and Android
Back in the days when iPhone and Android apps did not exist, people entertained themselves with thigs like reading, drawing, dancing, and, you guessed it, playing board games. But despite the arrival of the digital age, board games have not been forgotten. Quite the contrary – new ones are being made all the time, and they are just as fun and engaging as their old-school counterparts.

Today, we present you with 10 board games made for the iPhone, iPad, and Android. Feel free to check them out, and if you know any board games that we should have included in our list, let us know by dropping a comment.

Damn, Life and Civ are a steal for iOS users. One game I would add to this list is Risk on iOS for $2.99 and Drisk by Brian DeWolff on Android for $1.99. The one for iOS has some cool visuals and the one for Android comes with tons of new map variants. Two amazing mobile versions of the classic board game. Nice job Nick T, interesting list of mobile board games.

I would KILL for Civ Revolutions on my Android...I had it on my iPod and could not put that s**t down.

Carcassone was awesome, and after seeing that it's on android I'm about to go download it.

The title is misleading.

This article is about iOS games. The only time that Android is even mentioned is when there is an android version of the iOS game. It almost makes you think there are no android only board games which is extremely untrue.

And besides,
how do you forget the classics like chess. :)

What about Romance of the Three Kingdoms for IOS I would love to see a Game like that on Android. I almost bought an Ipad just for that app.
