Hasbro Zapped Gaming

Manufacturer: Hasbro
Price: $24.99
Available: Immediately

Talk about old meets new. Hasbro is revamping some of its classic board games, including The Game of Life and Monopoly, to incorporate the use of an iPad or iPhone.

Some of the features, such as a virtual spinner, offer players a nice special effect, but other features really improve the way the game is played. For example, in Monopoly players will be able to play virtual mini-games when they pull Chance and Community Chest cards.

The Game of Life is available now. Monopoly will hit stores in June and Battleship will come out in September.
