If you’ve always wondered how board games translate to mobile gaming devices, then the Humble Mobile Bundle: Board Games is the perfect way to find out.
After having attended the Spiel ’16, the world’s biggest board games convention in Essen and being blown away by the sheer amount of titles on offer, it’s clear that the physical world of social interaction in front of a table isn’t as dead as some people make it out to be. Just as books won’t go away in this digital age, board games will stay, although with smartphones and tablets being pretty common and affordable these days, it’s obvious that one can combine both worlds, as can be seen in this bundle.
Board games are often time-consuming and if you’re trying to collect all the boxes, you’ll need enough storage space as well, so being able to play them on the go without these restrictions is a no-brainer. Without going too much into detail, suffice it to say that there’s some amazing value for money with this selection.
Paying 1 Dollar or more unlocks Carcassonne and Scotland Yard, both being all-time board game favorites which are obviously very difficult to play on a bus or train ride in their physical form, so it’s great to have a pass-around-multiplayer option to simulate that co-op feeling.
With 3 Dollars or more you’ll receive Splendor, Catan, THE aMAZEing Labyrinth, Take It Easy, Small World 2, and Ingenious – The Board Game, a mix of two other classics and some more casual but not less fun titles.
Finally, paying 5 Dollars or more adds Ticket To Ride, San Juan, and Galaxy Trucker, again showcasing that one can fit quite a few add-ons for a very small price and space on a single phone.
What’s especially cool about the bundle that features so many Ravensburger titles is that one can experience them all with some wonderful graphics, additional modes that are only available on mobile platforms, and some soothing music and rather good voice acting. The games were available on iPhone, but these are for Android, so get them quickly before the offer expires in about two days.
