Dev: Acram Digital

Acram Digital, providing the “best digitized board games.”

But is that their opinion, or the gamers’ who play said digitized board games? Everyone loves what they create after all. A writer’s book is their baby. An artist’s work of art is their baby. A developer’s game is their baby. And why not, right? Blood, sweat, tears, time, and money go into what they create.

Still, saying your games are the best is toeing the line.

Now the games mentioned below are digital games, played on the computer. I believe they’re more about the apps, and if you’re interested in those specifically, you can check out these games on Amazon.

As far as Steam, find some of the games they’ve developed below.

Charterstone: Digital Edition

The official digital adaptation of Jamey Stegmaier’s board game – Charterstone!

It’s a campaign strategy game with high replayability, where players build the new Eternal City!

The campaign is divided into a series of separate games. Each game will have its own unique rule and bonus objective. Each game will build upon the previous one and add something new!

Your decisions and play style will affect the progress and the end of the campaign.

What’s more, there are no negative interactions between players. In other words, you score points on the back of your own strategy, not by undermining your opponents. It’s especially important when playing against your friends or family in online or hot-seats multiplayer!

Istanbul: Digital Edition

In Istanbul, you lead a group of one merchant and his four assistants through 16 locations in the bazaar. In each such a location, you can carry out a specific action.

The challenge, however, is that to take an action, you must move your merchant and an assistant there, then leave the assistant behind to handle all the details while you focus on larger matters. If you want to use that assistant again later, your merchant must return to that location to pick him up.

Thus, you must plan ahead carefully to avoid being left with no assistants and thus unable to do anything…

Eight-Minute Empire

Eight-Minute Empire, by Ryan Laukat, is a quick Civilization/Exploration game using card-driven area control.

In Eight-Minute Empire, 2-5 players take turns selecting a card from the six displayed. This card gives the player a resource, and also has an action which the player takes immediately. Actions help players take over the map, but the resources are worth points at the end of the game, so players have to balance the two aspects. Players spread across the map in order to collect points at the end of the game by having majority control in regions and continents.
