5 boardgames that ditched the board and went digital

Talisman Prologue HD

If you fancy a more fantasy-based world for your gaming, then try D&D-inspired game Talisman Prologue. You play as one of 10 pre-defined character classes (think warrior, druid, monk, assassin and the like) and once you've selected your role, go on your merry adventuring way.

It's heavy on the dice, though, so you will find yourself rolling to get yourself out of messes or to win at cards. There'll be the odd weapon to pick up, monster to slay and...unicorns. I'm not even kidding.

The only shortcoming of this game is the lack of any kind of multiplayer but the developers, Thumbstar Games, says that will come soon by Autumn 2013. In the meantime, this is some quick, casual single-player boardgame fun.

Buy it from Google Play (US$2.99) or from the App Store (US$2.99).
