Frequently Asked Questions

Where are the good free board games?
Many of the popular board games -- such as Catan and Clue -- are available as paid apps, starting at 99 cents. You can, however, find familiar board games to play for free, including Pokemon Duel and Yahtzee. Some free apps cover costs by displaying ads, and many offer in-app purchases to expand gameplay. And while many games let you challenge other players, some limit you to playing against the game's AI.
What is the difference between free and free to play?
With free games, you can download and play the game without having to buy anything. While a few mobile board games are truly free to play, most are supported by ads. The alternative to free is free to play, where you get a basic set of cards to begin playing with. Then, to expand the game, you need to make in-app purchases, which can range from 99 cents to $99.99 per item.
