Although the likes of Carcassonne and Risk have achieved global fame thanks to compelling gameplay and addictive social elements, strategy boardgames are still an acquired taste.
Boasting intricate rule sets, countless pieces, and complex game mechanics, these massively involving titles are sure to send your average gamer scurrying for the comforting familiarity of a Monopoly board.
That’s why porting such games over to iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad is a stroke of genius. The practice of digitally automating the tedious bits of boardgaming takes the sting out of learning the rules, thereby removing a significant barrier to entry.
A faithful replication of a mentally taxing strategy board game, Neuroshima Hex is limited by its small selection of gameplay modes but offers an engrossing and complex multiplayer experience
