Niantic announces Catan: World Explorers, the fourth augmented reality game from the studio

The Pokémon GO developer Niantic has just announced its fourth game, and yes, it's another augmented reality title. Shocking, I know. Since Niantic has already reskinned its original AR game Ingress with a Pokémon theme and a Harry Potter theme, the studio has now set its sights on the popular board game Catan, in cooperation with Asmodee. This upcoming title is called Catan: World Explorers, and it's billed as a massively-multiplayer augmented reality game that will "transform the entire Earth into one giant game of Catan," which at least sounds somewhat interesting.

Electronic Arts released an adaption of the classic board game Monopoly for Android back in 2011, but that version was de-listed years ago, presumably due to expiring licenses. A new version of Monopoly for Android and iOS was announced last month, and now you can pre-register for it on the Play Store.

Terraforming Mars is a new strategy board game from Asmodee Digital, now available on the Play Store

Yesterday I covered Asmodee Digital's recent announcement that Terraforming Mars would be officially released on Android today. After a quick look at the Play Store this morning, the game is indeed available for purchase. You can pick it up today for $8.99, and this is a premium release, so there are no in-app purchases or advertisements included. Keep in mind, what you actually receive for $9 is the base board game, so the expansions that exist for the physical version are not included, which means the lack of IAPs may change in the future if these expansions ever make their way to the digital versions of the game.

Tame the red planet in Terraforming Mars, the latest board game adaptation from Asmodee Digital (Update: Official release Dec. 4)

Asmodee Digital published Luckyhammers' digital adaptation of FryxGames' physical board game Terraforming Mars on PC in October of 2018, but thanks to a rough launch the planned mobile release was apparently put on hold. Well, it would appear that Asmodee Digital finally feels confident enough to push out a mobile beta test, which means you can finally pick up the Android version of Terraforming Mars on the Google Play Store for $4.99.

Chessplode modernizes chess for mobile with exploding pieces, and it's surprisingly fun

Juanma Altamirano's quirky board game Chessplode recently arrived on the Play Store, and if you're a fan of chess, I wholeheartedly recommend giving this game a go. Unlike a regular round of chess, there's an explosion mechanic in Chessplode that completely changes how the game is played, while still remaining familiar. You can choose to play solo, or against friends online, and there's even a level editor for those that wish to create and share their own challenges.

It's game over for Pokémon Duel on October 31

This morning The Pokemon Company updated the Play Store description for its digital board game Pokémon Duel to notify players that the game's service will end on October 31st, 2019. This may come to a few of you as a surprise, but with so many new mobile-oriented Pokémon games on the horizon, I suppose it's time to separate the wheat from the chaff.
