If you're looking for a fun board game port to play, check out Castles of Mad King Ludwig [$6.99], which just dropped to $0.99, its lowest price ever, to celebrate its first anniversary. The sale will only run for a couple of days, so make sure you grab the game while it's still cheap. If you haven't heard of the game yet, Castles was designed by Ted Alspach, who also designed the pretty fun Suburbia board game. Your goal is to design a castle by adding various rooms to it as you go along while trying to mess with other players' design aspirations. While you might start playing with the hopes of designing a masterpiece, you might end up with a castle that looks like it came straight out of Twilight Zone.

We liked the game in our review, especially because the theme works very well and because it has plenty of strategy. The game offers plenty of entertainment, and it should be a no-brainer at this price if you like board games on your devices.

    I picket this up last night.

    I've taken to using my iPad as a way of trying out board games that I might want to buy. So far I've discovered (and got for Christmas) Dominion, ruled out Zombies!!!, and been thoroughly creeped out by Tanto Coure

      I do the same now. If people complain about the price of board game iOS apps, I just point them to my physical collection and laugh. Then I let out a sad "sigh..." and a tear falls into my pocket, to try to take the place of the thousands of dollars I've spent. 😂

    The 3D graphics shown in the video are amazing, it looks almost exactly like a guy laying out physical board pieces and tokens on a table.

    I've been so busy that I missed this sale...
