Cheers I'll look those up. I love my Note 2 and iPad, but I haven't played any games on either that I've enjoyed anywhere near as much as console games or even DS games actually.
M:tg, Ascension, Fluxx, Eldar Sign, 7 wonders, Catan, League of Evil, Penny Arcade card game, numerous ports of DS games especially Ghost Trick for next to nothing, Ticket to Ride, loads of Point and Click stone-cold classics like Broken Sword: Director's cut and Flight of the Amazon Queen, Food Fight, Hexagon, Beat Sneak Bandit, the ChuChuRocket dreamcast port, Nightfall...
Tablets and mobile phones do actually have some genuinely fucking amazing games.
They are also excellent for people who like board and card games but don't have similarly-minded mates.
If you're a strategy/Board game/card game fan, iOS is a fucking goldmine.
WP has its share of gems too.
Can't speak for Android unfortunately.
