It's a board gaming kind of day in the App Store today, and first up is the newly released "A Brief History of the World" by the Ragnar Brothers. Starting in 3000 BC and ending in 1942, the game explores the rise and decline of major empires of the world together with minor empires and kingdoms. Players marshal armies against one another, crossing seas and oceans by fleets and building forts to better protect their lands. Capitals, cities ands monuments are built to bring the gold needed for victory. More gold is collected as the result of occupation of areas of the map.

Lastly, a non-board game option for those of you who aren't interest in tabletop-to-tablet conversions. It's 3D sci-fi-based tower defense action, and likely a breath of fresh air for anyone who's played to many 2D fantasy-themed entries in the same genre.
