US video games website IGN.com has put together a list of what it believes are the best ten board games available on the iPad.

It just so happens that the physical versions of all ten titles are only available in the UK from Esdevium Games.

Co-incidence? Well, not really.

In the 'States the phrase ‘board game’ is often used to refer to the strategy games sub-genre, which has a small yet dedicated fanbase in the UK - largely serviced by Esdevium.

Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride and Caylus might not sound as familiar as the likes of Monopoly and Scrabble, but the titles are quite popular here, with Esdevium enjoying a good sell-through of the games to specialist retailers as well as many toy retailers too.

"I think this is a pretty big deal considering the games mentioned in the article are there entirely because they are great games," said Esdevium’s marketing executive Ben Hogg.
