Score is the earth friendly alternative to game score tracking.
Use Score to track the ups and downs of board games, ping pong or a friendly game of "Paper, Rock, Scissors". Score helps you avoid point tracking on paper, in your head or with traditional game counters.
For example, you could use Score to track your points in a game of Carcassonne, leaving more room on your table for game play. You can also use this app quickly score a game of Agricola, or Puerto Rico.
Note, the current version now supports custom scoring modules. Click "Setup" > "Manage Score Modules" > "Fetch" to download the latest modules.
Current games supported: Agricola, Corsari, Cosmic Eidex, Frank's Zoo, Goa, Lost Cities, Metropolys, Oasis, Puerto Rico, Ra, San Juan, Thebes, Yahtzee, and Zooloretto

Pretty good app! Wish it tracked rounds
This is a pretty good app with a really cool interface. I only wish it tracked rounds or a total score added or subtracted per person. It tells you if you hit +10 five times it's 50 but if you pause for a second and continue it starts over. Works great, just don't loose track of your counting while changing scores. Also, if someone wants to double check a score for the last round of cards, this cannot be done.
Awesome score keeping application
Great little app that keeps score for 6 people, soon to be customizable for 1-8 players. Modules are being created for many popular board games (16 already), that are free and easy to download (and you can create them yourself!). Very clean and easy to use, and Ryan is very receptive to suggestions and is constantly upgrading it.
This app is very solid and a delight to use. New boardgame modules are added all the time (but you don't need them to score your games) and with a little XML knowledge you can add your own. Check out the geeklist and forum threads about this app on BoardGameGeek to keep up with the latest developments.
