Apps that are Board Games

Guest Author - Lynn Little

Apps are programs for mobile devices like phones and tablets. There are basically three platforms for apps: IOS(Apple), Android, and Windows 7. Shopping for apps, it does not take long to see that there are apps for practically everything. Some apps are productive(calendar, to-do list) while others are strictly for entertainment. There are many new games as well as classic games that are now apps. This includes board games as you can find many classic board games as an app you can play from the palm of your hand.

This article could not possibly list all of the board game apps available today; however, this article will spotlight some of the more classic board games that have been made into an app.

Checkers

A version of Checkers is available on all the app platforms listed above. The cost in most cases is free. Playing a Checkers app is a great way to play this classic game. It is also a fun venue for introducing the game to kids.

Reversi

Reversi - also known as Othello - is another freely available app. Playing this app will make the game go faster since the app flips the pieces for you as you try to surround your opponent.

Scrabble

There are many advantages to playing an electronic version of Scrabble. First, you can play with friends who are not in the same room. Second, words that are played are acceptable words already checked by the app. Scrabble is a very fun game. You can find Scrabble for a nominal price or a version of Scrabble possibly as a free app.

Mahjong Solitaire

Mahjong is a fine choice for an app. There are several versions of this popular game. Playing with the tiles can be challenging. A lot of electronic versions will offer hints and tell you when there are no more moves. You also are treated to soothing music.

Yahtzee

Dice games like Yahtzee are very popular apps although there is just something about the feeling of dice in your hands. Still the electronic version gives an option to play this favorite game anywhere. There are several apps that are like Yahtzee available.

There are many more board game apps and surely more to come. Although an app can never replace the actual board game, it gives us a way to enjoy our favorite games on the go. You can also easily introduce board games to kids through an app. With a lot of free options, there is little to no cost in trying out a board game app.
