The iPirate Board Game is a great example of how to make a board game more attractive to kids of the digital age. It uses the iPhone as a playing piece, or in this case, as a pirate ship that can be moved around the game board. The camera of the phone is used to detect the location of it on the game board and the animated actions are then displayed on the screen of the phone.

The fold-out game board of the iPirate Board Game is quite big, so there is a lot of space for your interactive adventures. I think that this unique concept of the iPirate Board Game is really the future of board games, where the analog and digital technologies are connected and create a new user experience.
