Twenty years back from now, kids were playing hide and seek, hot potato, frozen tag, sudoku, and many other fun games to amuse themselves. But now as the technology is advanced and with the invention of smart phone, the game to amuse kids are also evolved. Some of those games are listed below.
AI Factory Limited:
AI Factory Limited is a developer on Google Play. They specialize in basic board games and card games. They have exceptional versions of chess, checkers, backgammon, reversi, go, sudoku, and even tic-tac-toe. The designs are a little basic. However, the games function much better than average. They are also inexpensive and the free versions are usually more than good enough for most. This is the spot to try first for the basic stuff.
Battleships is a variant of the popular board game Battleship. The premise is much the same. You place your ships around a map as does your opponent. The first person to sink all of the boats wins. Some of the game’s other features include online PvP via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or on the Internet. You also get quick matches, medals (achievements), a chat, and more. It’s not quite as charming as the original. That said, it’s about as close as it gets on mobile.
Catan is one of the classic board games. It’s also a favorite of our own Gary Sims! Each player has to make settlements on the game board. The goal is to make the longest road with the largest army. Each settlement is adjacent to resources with numbers. Every time the dice hits that number, you get that resource. The game also features the original board game rules, online multiplayer, various expansions (available as in-app purchases), and more. It’s a seriously good board game.
Galaxy Trucker is one of the newer board games comparatively speaking. Players build ships to survive the harshness of space. You simply draw tiles and place them to build your ship. You also have to dodge obstacles and fight off bad guys. The game also features local multiplayer, online multiplayer, a campaign mode, and a couple of game play modes. The base game costs $4.99. There is optional DLC available for an additional $4.99 as an in-app purchase.
The Jackbox Party:
The Jackbox Party Pack games aren’t traditional board games. Each title is a collection of mini-games. The min-games range from trivia to puzzle and some other types. Players connect to a central device with their smartphones. Each round is played by each player on their individual devices. These games are ridiculously expensive. However, none of them have in-app purchases. The whole collection is about $100. These games are also available on Steam.
