Alien Frontiers Hits the iPad

If you haven't played Alien Frontiers yet, it's one of the slew of dice-Euros that have come out in the last couple of years. It's got a science fiction theme, and is a sort of worker placement/area-control. It uses dice, but in a pretty neat way—you use them to get resources, build ships, build settlements, and so forth. My biggest problem is that the end-game is swingy and prone to bang-on-the-leader. There's an expansion out, and it may have fixed my concerns (I haven't played it yet).But the point of this post is that it's available on the iPad now for $4.99—which is WAY cheaper that the actual board game.

Fluxx On Your iPhone!

This just in: Looney Labs has announced that a mobile version of their hit card game Fluxx will be available on the iOS platform. The mobile version will feature local play (Pass and Play) as well as solo mode vs. AI, and asynchronous support for online multi-player support. Looney Labs has hinted at a streamlined experience, with most likely fewer rules in the "deck." It appears that the game will be the original version of the game and not one of the themed decks.
