Want to play board games without having to set up and put away all the pieces? Look to this list for the best board game apps available. Play your friends or people from around the world. There are neo classic board games like Catan Universe and Mysterium: A Psychic Clue Game available for those game board geeks looking to play their favorite games on the go. Others, like the Clue board game app are for those looking to play classic board games on their smartphones and tablets. These apps are often available for a fraction of the cost as compared to their physical counterparts. You can use board game apps as an opportunity to try out a game before buying the physical board game. Other game board apps negate the necessity for the physical board all together like the Spaceteam app but still require all players to be in the same room. You can find most of these apps for both the iPhones, android smartphones, and their respective tablets.

There are other types of board game apps that are companions to the actual board games like the XCOM board game app and the Virtual Sorry Card Deck app but this list is for stand alone game apps that don't require any physical items to play.
