Eurogames for iOS / mobile devices

For the past several years I've started playing Eurogames . Eurogames are board games that are much more strategic in nature than the games we grew up with. Basically they require significantly more skill than luck. It's a great alternative to sitting in front of a computer by yourself playing a game. More recently there have been apps created that work just like the board games, and making setup and cleanup much easier. Most of these games have options to play against online opponents, pass-around mode, and a built-in AI. (Yes it puts you back on an electronic device, but you can do it in the living room or other public place.) I've enjoyed a few of these apps as they offer multiple benefits: Ability to practice strategies Usually faster than waiting on each person to take their turn You don't have to wait for a convenient time to gather enough players You can stop in the middle and resume later These have been my favorites Le Havre : Played on iPad 2 and
