With the release of the 'god device' set to release soon, and with the developers climbing over each other to develops apps for the device. I think we should put our .02 in and tell them that the killer app for the iPad is .... BOARD GAMES! meeple

Based on the facts that the iPad will have:

1. Larger Screen (10" 4:3)
2. Decent horsepower for a small device
3. Wireless-n and possible 3G
4. Upto 64gigs Flash storage.
5. Fully touchscreen.

What Board Games would you like to see ported/created for the iPad?

Being a miniature gamer at heart I'd like to see BattleLore developed for the iPad. With the larger screen, 3D capabilities, and multitouch it might work.

The iPad would be great for any physically small hex and counter game, like CC:E. Make it so when you play an opponent, and you both have iPads, you each get only your view of the board and your cards. Also ditch the counters and add 3D figures with pop-up stats when you move your finger over the unit. I'd buy this.

To me this might be the perfect iPad war game. Two players, both with iPads battling it out. Small board. Cards. Great Game.

This one was done on the iPhone, and fairly well done too. It could only get better with a larger screen, IMHO.

I think this one is a given. Even the screen format 4:3 is good for it. Also a cool thing to do would be to build in the ability to take a screen capture of your game and have it as your wall paper/background. I love the way a Go game looks.

I can see this being a big hit due to the big touch screen. With multi-touch you could manipulate the tiles akin to how you would with a physical tile. Another candidate for screen capture.

A small board game with many scenario options, playable between two players on one board.

I'd rather play this on someone else's iPad though.

I'd love to see this with the ability to roll the dice like in the Mach dice app. The small amount of hidden information (SPQR cards) could just be open and it doesn't really effect the game.

The whole series in one beautiful app would be worth at least 2.99
