Board Game Helper App

Post  RikTheChief on Fri 23 May 2014, 20:22

Does anybody think there might be any mileage in an app which keeps track of tokens, victory points, money etc? It could have a built in calculator, dice roller etc. Half of me thinks it's a good idea the other half thinks its stupid...any thoughts?

Some games have a specific app to do this. Many of them charge for the app. A free generic app would be a useful tool.

Prototype

This is my first prototype.  Let me know what you think.

It's Android only at the moment, so you Apple fanboys will have to wait a bit longer!

Looks like a great start.
If you can add dice other than D6 and make the faces customisable you'll be onto a winner!

How hard would it be to have default profiles for the more popular games (Catan, Agricola, Pandemic, etc) and the ability for a player to create/form their own new profiles for his/her favourite game to load in...

Updated to a new version with extra features, a new colourful layout and various other improvements

For club members you can download the full version from here, it is also available from the Google store

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0RGwo3mpo9XRlZZUTNiR1phZVk/view?usp=sharing

Unfortunately still only Android at the moment.

Any feedback would be appreciated!

Somebody last week (sorry I can't remember who you were!) was looking for a spare dice and Kes suggested an app - it just so happens my Board Game Helper app has a dice roller built in.

Unfortunately it's Android only at the moment, but it's free (to club members) and you can download it from the link above.

We ended up raiding Dead of Winter for it's bag of dice, and then found out we only needed the dice to decide the first player. Lol.

I expected somebody to just pull a die out of their breast pocket or behind their ear.

Rik, I downloaded the app but I can only see one screen titled Tokens, that let's me add money and resources (but not take them away or do anything else with them). I can't seem to access any other page. I downloaded onto a Motorola Moto G.

There should be a drop-down box marked 'Tokens', if you tap here it should let you select the different modules.  Can you see this?

Not quite. Screenshot attached

Edit: Okay, it doesn't want to let me attach from my phone, I guess.

I have basically the same screen as you but everything below the last resource isn't there.

OK Thanks for the feedback, I'll do some research and see if I can find out what the problem is.

Any chance you could keep it on your phone so I can have a look next time I see you?

At the risk of self promotion here's some free keys for my Board Game Helper app, simply enter them in the Google Play store under 'Redeem'. Sorry it's Android only at the moment.
