    This board game is available on iPad and such now, and as usual the computer version plays much more smoothly than the tabletop one (much less setup and breakdown time).

    It's fun. Not much more to say for it than that. Every time I get Underworld Goblins or Underworld Ratmen I think of Wyrmwood.

    I play pass and play with my kids a lot, and apparently there is a way to play online, but damned if I can figure that out. I just got bifocals, or whatever they're calling them these days.

    Ticket to Ride is another good one. I've got both for my android.

    I'm guessing you're Iphone/pad version of small world doesn't have a great big honking space in the middle right that says, "Online Arena," like mine does. Maybe because mine is actually listed as Small World 2? Hope you find it eventually.

    Smallworld is very fun, and rather fast, but best of all, the pieces are great for replacing heaps of expensive miniatures when playing tabletop Blood Bowl! They're fantasy themed and cover many of the same races, they can be turned face down to mark prone players, and they come with tons of tokens that you can use for anything else you need to make a note of. Plus they fit perfectly on a square grid battlemat.

    If you're like me and the modelling itself isn't a big part of the fun for you, you'll save tons of time and money this way, and as a bonus you'll get another good board game to play with your BB buddies!
