Well, after conversing with - er - absolutely no one, today we found out that Asmodee Digital has a lot of titles on the way across mobile, Switch, and your usual PC dabblings. Yes, we're including PC releases too because maybe these'll come to mobile eventually.
Did you know that we host weekly digi board game streams on Twitch? The magic man, James Gilmour, goes live every Tuesday at 5 PM UK time to show off some glorious content (oo er).
If you're not around to watch them don't worry, you can catch up with them afterwards and watch all of our other streams while you wait for the next one.
The next one'll be Talisman: Digital Edition, and James doesn't have the best record of beating the competition. This is one you won't want to miss.
