There is a Monopoly app ($4) that is the same as the original, just with a couple of additional features to spice things up even more. There’s even a “quick mode” for when you don’t have an entire evening to play.
2. Catan Universe
If this is the first time you have heard about Catan, you are in serious luck because this game promises fun like no other with a dash of strategy and luck.
