Board Game 2.0

Board games are enhanced with mobile apps for digital enhancement

Implications - While online gaming certainly appeals to those seeking both accessibility and entertainment, digital interaction often lacks that tangible aspect often found with more traditional gaming products. Enhancing items like board games without sacrificing elements of tradition, retailers are turning to mobile apps and online engagement to not only revitalize classic gaming activities, but also maintain an element of nostalgia within tech-centric goods.
