With the popularity of the online show Tabletop, board games are enjoying a resurgence. Instead of gathering around cardboard, why not use your iPad? Many of the most popular and classic board games are available as apps on your iPad. Plus, an iPad app removes the need to set up and clean up a board, and makes it impossible to lose any pieces. The best apps recreate both the gameplay and the social component of the physical board game (so we have excluded apps that rely only on pass and play multiplayer). This AppList will walk you through the best apps to fire up during your next gathering of family and friends.
