On PocketGamer.fun this week: Virtual board games, multiplayer chaos and Railbound

Regular readers of Pocket Gamer will be aware that we released a brand new website last week called PocketGamer.fun. It’s a site we’ve made in collaboration with domain specialists Radix, intending to help you find your next favourite game quickly.

So, if you’re looking for distilled gaming recommendations, head over to the site and be greeted with dozens of great games to download any that take your fancy. But, if you’re happy with a little more reading, we’ll regularly post articles like this one to update you on what we’ve posted on the site in the last week or so.

Rolling the digital dice in virtual board games

Board games are great, but they often come with a few drawbacks. They often contain tiny pieces that inevitably get lost no matter how much care you take, and some are simply incredibly expensive. On mobile, you don’t have to worry about either of those issues – you can’t lose virtual pieces, while the games are often a fraction of the cost compared to the physical version. So check out our list to find some great board games to enjoy on your phone.

Pitting your skills against other people in multiplayer

The call for multiplayer is strong for many gamers out there. It’s not enough to simply enjoy something. We need to know how we stack up against other players. So, we decided to list some of our favourite multiplayer mobile games, making sure to include a mixture of fast-paced stuff that tests your reflexes to more cerebral strategy experiences where your tactical nous is your best weapon.

Game of the week


While puzzlers are known for testing your smarts, they don’t always hurt your brain so much it becomes frustrating. In fact, some are incredibly relaxing and meditative experiences, like Afterburn’s Railbound, a game about connecting railways so you can reach your destination. It has a lovely aesthetic that wouldn’t look out of place in a children’s book.
