Jumbo Games has launched a series of interactive game pieces which are designed to enhance the experience of baord games played on the iPad.
iPawn brings family gaming into the 21st century by combining traditional play with new technology to create iPad games with sophisticated interactive qualities.

The software for the ipawn concept has been co-developed with Fonk Mobile, an Amsterdam based company for mobile applications.
