Board games have been around for a long time. The oldest board games date back to 3500BC and have come a long way since then. Most of us can remember playing the classics like Monopoly to the more modern games like Pandemic. If you want to use your Android device to play them, here are the best board games for Android!
Fleet Battle is a variant of the popular best board games for Android – Battleship. The premise is much the same. You place your ships around a map as does your opponent. The first person to sink all of the boats wins. Some of the game’s other features include online PvP via WiFi, Bluetooth, or on the Internet. You also get quick matches, medals (achievements), a chat, and more. It’s not quite as charming as the original. That said, it’s about as close as it gets on mobile. You can find the real Battleship game by Hasbro on Amazon here.
Chwazi Finger Chooser
Choosing who goes first in a game or splitting a group into teams has never been easier or more fun than with the Chwazi Finger Chooser app. With Chwazi, everyone just places a finger on the phone or tablet screen and the app randomly selects one finger. It’s like drawing straws, but using technology!Alternatively, you can have the app choose more than one finger and eliminate someone. There’s also an option for creating groups. Chwazi says they can support up to 32 fingers at one time, but you might be limited to the number of simultaneous inputs your phone or device can handle.
One Night Ultimate Werewolf
One Night Ultimate Werewolf is actually one of the top board games for Android. The game is actually pretty fun. Players get assigned various roles in the game. Some are villagers and others are werewolves. The app tells players what they need to do. Then players spend a few minutes trying to figure out who the werewolf is. This one technically requires the actual game pieces to play. However, players can make their own cards and use the app to control everything. We do recommend getting the actual game, though. It’s good to support the makers and you can buy the base card game here.
What is the most popular board game ever? One of the all-time great Euro games, Puerto Rico is a high-strategy game with very little randomness or luck involved. You’re building out a colony by planting crops, constructing buildings, shipping goods either for money or points, and hiring colonists represented by … (squinting) little brown tokens. (That’s true in the physical game as well.) It’s a classic “engine builder,” where you set things up in your space to generate stuff each round, mostly trade goods you can ship for points, which is the optimal strategy unless everyone else is doing it, too.
Sea Battle 2
Don’t let anyone sink your battleship! This reimagining of the classic game lets you play against AI, a random online opponent, or the person sitting next to you. It goes beyond mere battleships to include planes, radar, mines, and submarines.All the while, you climb the ranks from a lowly recruit to an admired admiral. Name your proud fleet, watch your scores on the global leaderboard, and use the in-app chat feature to discuss strategy. There are also arenas, gameplay over Bluetooth with friends, tournaments, and the choice between classic and advanced game modes.
Wild Jack: Card Gobang
This is my current favorite best board games for Android that I can now play on my phone. You may know this game as the 80s card-board game Sequence. This is a game for two or three players where the goal is to make two lines of five chips on the board by playing cards that correspond to the spots on the board. If you’re up against just another player, you only need to complete one sequence. However, if it’s you and two others, then you need two sequences to win.It sounds really lame to explain it in text, but it’s a ton of fun to play. You can play against AI and online opponents, whichever suits you. You’ll get automatic matchmaking to keep your gameplay experience as smooth as possible.
The Castles of Burgundy
One of my favorite complex Eurogames, The Castles of Burgundy gives you a lot of options, and a lot of ways to score points, but it’s a bit of a bear to set up and the original game had some unfortunate color choices on its small hexagonal pieces that made them hard to distinguish. This app version uses graphics from the newest edition, and has solid AI players that can navigate the myriad choices and strategies available to players, only lacking in the spite that actual humans can show (there are some times when blocking an opponent is the right strategy). This is a game I rarely get to the table in my house, so playing on the app is often a good way to get my fix.
These are the list of best board games for Android which you can’t afford to miss. So, go ahead and add all these game on your favorite list and enjoy right now!
