Yoomi DUO Turns Your iPad into an Interactive Board Game

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on August 1st, 2011

Despite the fact that touchscreen tablets are supposed to be free of unnecessary accessories and other gadgets, the DUO will gladly turn your iPad into an interactive board game. Just set it on top of the iPad or iPad 2 and it will work with a game called Yoomi.

The DUO comes with tokens, so at the end of the game there is a winner and a loser. It retails for $14.99 on Amazon and is also available at Toys ‘R’ Us, and Walmart. I guess this is where board games are headed, instead of coming in a large box.

Monopoly board game now uses Google MapsMonopoly has so many incarnations at this point that you may think they can’t do anything new. Turns out they have some tricks up their sleeve. Monopoly is about to go online. On September 9, Hasbro will launch Monopoly City Streets, which is a live, worldwide version of the popular game.

Players get $3 million to start and will be able to put nearly any kind of building anywhere they want, thanks to Google Maps. You want a football stadium in the the middle of town, where it doesn’t belong? Your wish is granted. Could be a lot of fun.

startreksceneit-sbAnyone who has seen pictures of rabid Star Trek fans knows that geeks don’t get much geekier than these people do. Star wars fans can give them a run for their money, but Trek fans take the cake in my book. Hard core Star Trek fans can show off the Trek knowledge in a new board game based on the series.

The Star Trek Scene It game has been announced with two collector’s edition bundles. The game uses a DVD to play actual clips from the variety of TV shows and movies in the franchise. Players try to answer trivia questions that relate to the scenes to win the game.

Clue: Secrets & SpiesOne of my favorite board games when I was a kid was Clue. Figuring out who killed Col. Mustard and what they used to do it was great fun. The game has hung around and is now a classic with the same game play that many of us grew up on. Hasbro is also announcing new versions of the game with updated game play.

The latest version is called Clue: Secrets & Spies and has players trying to infiltrate a criminal league as a super spy. Players try to figure out who Agent Mustard and Agent Scarlet are and complete missions independently.

Clue goes geek with Dungeons and Dragons Edition

Clue goes geek with Dungeons and Dragons EditionSay you’re a Clue fan who finds the game a little stale after so many years and you also really really love D&D. Here’s what you need to get yourself this Christmas. Find out who killed the Archmage. Any of the 6 players could be the evil doppleganger.

Was it Tordek the Dwarf Fighter with the Flaming Battle Axe in the Library of Arcane Tomes? Or maybe it was Lidda the Halfling Rogue with the Dagger of Venom in the Magical Armory? Or perhaps Nebin the Gnome Wizard with the Mace of Disruption in the Chamber of Tricks & Traps?

It’s as if thousands of geek minds suddenly cried out, at the prospect. But in agony or ecstasy? The game is like standard Clue but with a D&D twist. All the rooms, weapons, and characters have been changed to a D&D theme. You also get a deck of Wandering Monster cards. When you draw one you have to fight one of the six monsters. If you do this and win, you gain an advantage and can look at your opponent’s deck or get an extra turn. Lose your battle with the monster and get sent to the maze in the middle of the board where you have to roll a die to get out. Comes with six pewter characters and six pewter weapons.
