Unqualified Experts #24: Best Digital Board Game Adaptations

The last year has been…well it’s been a year. Let’s just put it that way and then leave it be. However, if there is a silver lining, it comes in the form of discovering so many digital board games so we could still game as a group, even when we couldn’t meet in person. Some digital board game adaptations were amazing. Some were much less so.

But with over an entire year to try out a lot of different games, we came up with a list of the board games that did a stunningly good job with creating a good digital version that was easy to use, as well as those that didn’t quite meet our standards.

Here’s the episode including an opening sketch with our favorite old friend: The Green Button.

We thank everyone for the amazing support with Season 2. We hope you like this best digital board game video and the next 19 episodes of this awesome season!

While the AI for it is trash (which is a massive shame) Lords of Waterdeep is just one of many favorites that comes up, as we talk about games we’ve played IRL as well as digitally and tell you what they do well, what they don’t do well, and give you the information you need to always have a list of quality online board games handy.

Some of these have outstanding AI, some are perfectly designed for multi-player with your friends, and some just get about everything right. After this episode, you shouldn’t have ANY problem finding a great digital adaptation of a board game that you enjoy and can get the friends to join in on.

There are many great board game adaptations on Steam or Board Game Arena that work amazingly well, just a short list of which include:

  • Dice Forge
  • Inca Gold
  • Life
  • Lords of Waterdeep
  • Monopoly
  • Root
  • Sagrada
  • Settlers of Catan
  • Splendor
  • Sushi Go
  • Stone Age
  • Uno
  • And many more!

Which make our list? Which board games do the best converting into an online format? You’ll have to watch the episode to find out!
