Board gaming is often better on the iPad
This is a quick guide to some of the best board games on the iPad, and I'll be damned if many of these games aren't better on a tablet than they are using the "real" thing. I doubt that anything will ever replace the feeling of getting together with family and friends and playing with physical pieces, but you also can't ignore the many advantages of playing the electronic version of the games.
The main thing I love about playing board games on tablets is that the game can teach you how to play. You're not allowed to make illegal moves, the game can explain the rules for each round, and you don't have to invite friends over to fumble through those first few sessions. This way you can learn the ins and outs of the game, explain it to your friends, and have a much better time when you invite people over.
Pick up a few of these games, I promise you won't be disappointed.
