Sage Board Games has licensed and will be publishing an upcoming "who's who" of board games being developed for iPad, iPhone, and iTouch by Codito Development Inc.
Why iPad? Our belief is that Apple’s iPad has proven to be the first mobile device that can truly provide a real board gaming experience. The screen is large enough, and the picture is crisp enough, to be viewed by groups of people sitting around a table. The iPad also improves gameplay by managing the minutiae of piece management and rule application, freeing the players to focus on strategies, interactions and the joy of the game. In short, gamers can play what they want, when they want, and finish an entire game in the time they might otherwise spend trying to find that missing card or pawn!
We believe that bringing great board games to this type of platform has the potential to make deeply strategic games accessible to people who would not otherwise play them. We also sincerely hope that iPad/iPhone versions will stimulate sales of the printed versions of the games by exposing a new kind of consumer to Euro board games.
