You don't have to cry over spilled checkers anymore thanks to the Game Table App for the iPad. Unlike most other gaming apps where you are playing with unseen users on the web, this one has the same dynamic of a traditional board game. Two or more people gather around the iPad (depending on the game) and simply touch the screen to move their game piece.
No longer do you have to worry about carrying your fancy chess set to the park. Thanks to the Game Table App, all you have to worry about now is carrying your fancy iPad to the park. Just remember if you lose, not to hit the board in frustration -- your friend won't appreciate that very much.
