Playing Sagrada has given me a serious hankering for more board games. Unfortunately, as we discussed last week, good board games on mobile are something of a rarity. However, there’s a lot more on offer if you expand your definition of what constitutes a board game to include dice and card-based games. There are tons of these on mobile, some of which are quite good. Dicey Elementalist is one such great choice for Android.

Drawing inspiration from classic sword and sorcery tabletop role-playing games, Dicey Elementalist mixes deck-building, random chance, and rogue-lite dungeon crawling to craft an experience that reeks of Dungeons & Dragons with a few notable adjustments to tighten up the experience for bite-sized mobile play sessions.
