I had never played the boxed game of Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, but the reviews always made it seem like a game I would like. When I got my Ipad it was one of the first games I purchased and I’m very glad I did.

I’m not going to go into the rules because they are readily available elsewhere. Ascension is a deck building game where you and your oppenent start with a small, but identical hand of cards and build a larger and hopefully powerful deck by the end of the game. But what I will say is that the game is filled with great artwork, and the presentation is probably the best I’ve seen in a boardgame to Ipad conversion.

It is also very easy to learn. I read through the instructions in less than 5 minutes and watched the tutorial which was very informative. I was able to play through my first game without having to refer back to the instructions at all. If you are not familiar with the concept of deck building it might take a little longer to fully grasp the game, but not to the point where you wouldn’t enjoy it.

I have onlyl played against the AI but you can also play against another live opponent or online. Very fun game with great graphics and sound effects!

I like scrabble. It’s not my favorite game by any means but I do enjoy it with some friends who are not “boardgamers”.

Each player starts out with 7 random letter tiles and on their turn they place any/all the letters on the board spelling a word and gain points per letter used. Each letter is worth varying amounts of points based on how commonly used that letter is. Example, X and Q are worth more points than S or E. After the first person places a word and randomly replaces their used letters the next person uses some of their own letters to add to the first persons word ( either horizontally or vertically ) to spell another word. The board will start to look like a crossword puzzle. It can be very challenging. There are some spaces on the board that give double or triple points. It’s important to use these yourself and deny them to your opponents. It’s also a great game for teaching children new words and spelling if not played too seriously.
