It sounds like you have something other than an iPad?
Someone with experience with the myriad of places will have to answer. You won't find a lot of the games we have been talking about though.

What type of gamer are you?: RPG
Google Play Store and the Amazon App Store are the best options for easy browsing. You can side load all sorts of stuff from other places, but those two will give you the most fool proof interface.

Note that android has only a fraction of the board games that iOS has, so you might not be able to find all of the ones you might want.

Thank you! The solo game has been a lot of fun.

Yeah! The multiplayer interface is still a bit wonky, but Harb, coffee, Eric and I all have it if you want to try it sometime.

Sorry GT, I didn't remember for sure that you had Suburbia.

The multiplayer interface is a real crap fest, so I haven't checked it out in a while, so I was just going off the top of my head who I knew had the app from the last time I tried the multiplayer.

Nothing personal!

For those that have played Suburbia Multiplayer.

I just completed my first game. It is still saying I have a turn to finish. When I go in, it also states the game has completed. Am I missing the acknowledge button, is it an eternal reminder as to my humiliating defeat, or a bug?

It's part of the problem. On the screen that lists all your multiplayer games, swipe right at the right of the particular game to get options, just delete it.

Though it is a good reminder of your defeat.

Yeah, I can't even get that far. I've never even finished a multiplayer game yet, drives me nuts!

I've gotten them to work, but Game Center notifications are always out of sync. You have to manually sync them in the app.
You and mr Coffee have turns in our games, btw

Nope, even the the little red Resign button just sits there, even when lets me access it. Mostly it just goes to the game and locks all the features except to start another turn.

Maybe I'll try a shutdown/reboot later.

Hmmm...

"Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft" came out for free in IOS. Sounds like fun.

You should look into it. O:)
