(And by “we”, I of course mean “you”.)
I’ve been talking a lot about board games lately. Would you like to play some of them? Not in my house, good lord no! I don’t trust you people around my priceless Ming vases. On your very computer machine! Here’s a buncha computer translations of boardgames you can try yourself (all can be played solo):
Metro – (Java) Lay down tracks to make the longest train route possible. If you connect to the center block, your track scores double.
Hive – (Java) A pretty complex game. Players take turns laying down or moving their insects in an attempt to capture the opponent’s queen. Lots of strategy here.
Coloretto – (Java) Card game in which you want to take as many as possible of some colors, but none in any other colors.
Take it Easy – (Java, IE Only) Solo puzzle game. Place the hexes into the boards to try and complete paths from one side to the other. When a path is complete, if all the numbers are the same, it scores that number times the amount of hexes in the path.
Blokus – (Java) Place as many of your tiles as you can. You can rotate tiles, but they have to (and can only) touch other tiles of your color at the corners of the pieces.
TransAmerica – (Java Download) Lay down train tracks to connect your cities before others do. Lots of different maps and very good AI.
There you go! Tons of funs for you! All of these are available as real-life board games that can be played with multiple players. There’s a lot more out there, and I’ll probably post more at some point.
