andylim writes “recombu.com is running an interesting piece about how Apple has created a ‘Jumanji (board game) platform.’ The 9.7-inch multi-touch screen is perfect for playing board games at home, and you could use Wi-Fi or 3G to play against other people when you’re on your own. What would be really interesting is if you could pair the iPad with iPhones, ‘Imagine a Scrabble iPad game that used iPhones as letter holders. You could hold up your iPhone so that no one else could see your letters and when you were ready to make a word on the Scrabble iPad board, you could slide them on to the board by flicking the word tiles off your iPhone.’ Now that would be cool.”
