Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Android's free-to-play and paid games?
In free-to-play board games, the developer makes the basic game available to everyone to play. Then, to expand the game, you make in-app purchases, which start at 99 cents. In paid games, you pay upfront to download and play, usually 99 cents to $9.99. While some paid games like Castles of Mad King Ludwig give you everything for one price, others -- such as Carcassonne -- offer in-app purchases to expand the game.
How do you play board games on an Android device?
Most play much like their tabletop counterparts, where you place cards or spin a dial and advance around a gameboard. You can challenge other online players or play locally, passing your Android phone among players to take turns.
