I have a preorder for John Butterfield's solitaire boardgame of the Battle of the Bulge and I see that he is involved in an iPad version of the same. Here is the Kickstarter link for those interested. I do not have an iPad but I may pledge a bit to support such efforts, as they have a way to go before reaching their goal.

You cant really use kickstarter for iPad as Apple forbids you from giving out games to users who did not buy from the app store. Not sure if this is what he intends but if it is he wont get very far!

May I ask where you preordered the boardgame? I'm always on the lookout for solitaire boardgames and I can't seem to find any info for this game outside of the ipad version.
Thanks

Looking at the kickstarter thing I don't understand how they're going to do it. They do seem to be promising copies of the game to people who pay and they fundamentally wont be allowed to do it. If anyone knows them bring it up when you speak with them just in case they didn't realise. Maybe I have it wrong though and they mean something else!

Here is a BGG list that I made up with all of the solitaire games that I have currently preordered. Let me know which ones besides the Ardennes game intriques you. If you click on the name of the game in the list, it will take you to the main BGG page for the game where you will find the web links. Hope this helps...

I called them just to be sure and they have a plan where they'll purchase copies for everyone from the app store and send gift tokens. So there are no issues with them getting iOS versions out to people!

Wow J P Falcon, excellant list! Some of them I've seen, but others like Cuba Libre, D-Day Tarawa and Peleliu are new to me. They look great. I got some shopping to do! Thanks again JP.
