Developer: Days of WonderPlatforms: Android, iOSGenre: Board Game, StrategyPrice: $9.99While Days of Wonder is most popular with its brilliant board games, it is anything but a stranger to mobile gaming. In fact, the game studio was among the first to develop and launch a board game in virtual form on the iPad. That happened back in 2010 when a digital adaptation of its hit board game Small World was published in Apple's App Store. The port, however, couldn't exactly match the awesomeness of the real deal, which is why kudos go to DoW for treating its mobile title to the overhaul it deserved. This refreshed release of the game is called Small World 2. Note that Small World 2 for iOS and Android isn't a totally new Small World game. It is still based on the original Small World board game, but it is a better-made port overall, with multiplayer modes, maps for up to 5 players, and other goodies. With that out of the way, let's continue exploring Small World 2.For those not familiar with … [Read more...] about Small World 2 Review: countless hours of board game fun

A loss for humanity! Man succumbs to machine! If you heard about AlphaGo’s latest exploits last week — crushing the world’s best Go player and confirming that artificial intelligence had mastered the ancient Chinese board game — you may have heard the news delivered in doomsday terms. There was a certain melancholy to Ke Jie’s capitulation, to be sure. The 19-year-old Chinese prodigy declared he would never lose to an AI following AlphaGo’s earthshaking victory over Lee Se-dol last year. To see him onstage last week, nearly bent double over the Go board and fidgeting with his hair, was to see a man comprehensively put in his place. But focusing on that would miss the point. DeepMind, the Google-owned company that developed AlphaGo, isn’t attempting to crush humanity — after all, the company is made up of humans itself. AlphaGo represents a major human achievement and the takeaway shouldn’t be that AI is surpassing our abilities, … [Read more...] about AI, the humanity!
