For sure there are also some other board-game apps that I did not cover here (such as Ghost Stories, Assassin’s Creed, Shadow Era, Yggdrasil, Tichu, Ra, Medici, Ingenious). Some others are not out there yet (Eclipse, Stronghold, Agricola, Wings of Glory).

Let me know of your favorite iOS board games in the comments below.
