There are loads of different kinds of board games on the App Store, but one thing that you might think is a little underrepresented is asymmetrical games. These are games where the moves and options that the different players have aren't the same.

Kings and Assassins is probably the easiest example of the style on the App Store (and you won't be surprised to find that it's on our list), but there are other games out there that use asymmetrical mechanics to great end.

That's why we've put together this list for you. It's five games that we reckon get asymmetrical play just right. If you've got your own suggestions, feel free to stick them in the comments section at the bottom of the article.
