Winner Announced 1st October 2010

This Weeks Winner is, Tristan Dawson. Congratulations.

Pandemic by Z-man games. It’s fantastic with any number of players to come together and save the world from the dreaded red, black, blue and yellow diseases! Add the expansion with the bioterrorist and updated roles etc, and you’ve got an excellent iphone winner I reckon.

Online gameplay plus ‘scenarios’ could be implemented. ‘Scenarios’ could be a list of game-altering rules to enhance/change gameplay – much like an expanded expansion. These scenarios would keep people coming back to the game for a long time.

  1. Carcassonne for iPad, with expansions would be awesome. (The iPhone version is great; Just need an iPad version)

  2. A game like Neuroshima hex, with its simultaneous combat resolution would be great on an ipad, It’s a fast elegant game, but in a 4 player game someone/thing working out the combat would be great. I also think that Sci fi games and ipads work together.

  3. Well first, I’d like to own an Ipad. . .

    and then!

    Then i would like to see some of the better quality indie games on them like Braid or Limbo

  4. Magic the gathering would be fantastic in an ipad or Iphone format.

    You could have animations and sounds on the cards to bring them to life.

    Multiplayer through wifi.

    And the tapping of played cards by the touch pad.

  5. I would love to see “Tsun Tsu’s Ancient Art of War” ported to the iPhone. To date, one of the best games ever, 4 colour graphics and no animation to speak of, but simple brillance!!

  6. Munchkin!
    In a perfect world, Munchkin could be played wirelessly, on a separate ipod for each player. With a central server, the main downside of Munchkin – the need for 4+ players – becomes a non-issue. Also, expansion packs as DLC would be fantastic.

  7. I would love to see Formula D on the iPhone as this is such a great game and i would love to be able to play it on the bus to and from work and also on my way to Sydney when im on my way to buy games.

  8. I’d like to see Trivial Pursuit. The problem always was the questions dated quickly. But on an iphone you could keep up to date databases of questions for kids, oldies, naughty questions, etc. And could you play with your friends by bluetooth, mobiler wifi

  9. Hero Quest! Complete with voice/video, so whoever is playing Morcar can still act like a douche. The motion sensor for dice rolls/griefing and the extra screen space for card management. Hero Quest is back! In virtual POG form!

  10. I can see the advantage of integrating games onto computers and mobiles. No longer will you need to spend time setting up games. No longer will small pieces vanish into the aether, nor friends for spilling drinks on your board. But there is also a loss, a loss of touching the pieces when you move them, the loss of casual conversation while playing and the joint effect from players to pack up a game afterwards. For me the loss is so much greater than the gain, so please don’t integrate my favourite games for use on the iphone.

  11. Great strategy and easily adapted to apps for iPad or IPhone. Go for it!!

  12. Tikal is a favorite of mine, and I think would adapt very well to the iPad platform

  13. Race for the Galaxy! It’s one of the fastest, most fun games I own, and the iPad would really help with remembering all those card powers and modifiers.

  14. Pandemic by Z-man games. It’s fantastic with any number of players to come together and save the world from the dreaded red, black, blue and yellow diseases! Add the expansion with the bioterrorist and updated roles etc, and you’ve got an excellent iphone winner I reckon.

    Online gameplay plus ‘scenarios’ could be implemented. ‘Scenarios’ could be a list of game-altering rules to enhance/change gameplay – much like an expanded expansion. These scenarios would keep people coming back to the game for a long time.

  15. I would like to see Robo Rally made into an iphone or ipad app. I think it would save me from having to stand up from the game table and begin to wonder around the room in an embarrassing attempt to try to determine where my Robo will end up once it has been ‘programmed’ . Instead, I could just lay the device flat and twist and turn it, and then cross my fingers that I have ‘programmed’ it right. It would also be cool to see animation of the Robos getting zapped by lasers!

  16. TABOO! I love this game, you could play against computers or friends with iPhones. It would be a more acurrate way of timing also as i often forget to look at the timer when getting caught up in the game. It could also include update of word packs!

  17. I would love to see Stone Age integrated into the iphone/ipad. It is a game that still engages me even after playing it over 50 times. It is one of my favorite games to introduce to people who are new to the hobby (i.e. great gateway game).

  18. Settlers of Catan mainly cause i think it would work well as a application/game
    Easy to Lean Years to Master
    and it is fun as well lol.
    Thanks Adam b

  19. Dominion. I think the card-based gameplay could be integrated well into the gadgets, and while it wouldn’t need a token like the ones described, that would make it better for travel. It’s a brilliant game with endless variety – great to have with you.

  20. Carcasonne in full 3D would be great on an iPad,:spinning tiles, zooming in at different angles, and best of all – an animated dragon munching on meeples.

  21. I would like to see top trumps. you can versethe computer, the world and friends

    I’d love to see an i-Pad version of Bausack. The i-Pad could be the base, and a collection of i-Pod touches the bits to be stacked. It would be awesome! This or Snifty Snakes would be my gold recommendations!

    On a serious note, an I-Pad would be a great way to do fog of war, so a Columbia Block game, like Hammer of the Scots or Crusader Rex would be cool.

  23. I I would love to see the game Chaos in the Old World integrated as an iDevice application. The simple area control and combat mechanisms would allow a seamless shift into the handheld touch-screen interface of the iPhone and iPad. It also goes without saying that I think the game is awesome and rightly deserves to be included in the latest gaming revolution.

  24. Saboteur card game because it is a quick short game that requires strategy and lets people release their inner ‘evilness’ as they try to stop opponents from reaching the gold. It would be best if the multiplayer function is available via wifi or bluetooth

  25. I would love to see Guillotine integrated into a game application. I think it would be great to see what they could do with the awesome artwork and the simple gameplay. It is already a great game and could only become greater.

  26. I’d like to see Diplomacy multiplayer for iOS. I’d like to get text messages when it’s time to make move. I’d like to be able to call other players to conduct diplomacy. The app should take care of all the rules and move resolution. Cool!
