Ipad Mini and board game apps

Hi guys,

I recently got an Ipad Mini and had a question on playing board games on it. I play board games on my iphone, but some games I would have to scroll down or what not to choose an option. (Lords of Waterdeep).
I've played Ascension which is fine. Agricola it seems different, so I haven't really played much of it yet. Ticket to Ride is fine.

Not sure if I am placing it in the right area, but I wanted to know from a scale of 1-10: Would playing board games on the ipad mini be hassle free (able to make moves)?


Thanks

Board games work great on my Mini. I haven't found a board game yet that has been a problem on my Mini.

I play Lords of Waterdeep, Eclipse and Carcassone on my iPad mini. All play fantastically well.

Carcassonne, Eclipse, and Talisman Prologue. I would recommend Ascension too but the app is going to be pulled in the middle of 2014. I also highly recommend Agricola but unless you have played the board game version you may find it kinda overwhelming at first.

The retina iPad Mini is treated like an iPad by iOS, so you will get the iPad install and not an enlarged iPhone one...
