    There’s been a lot of talk about how the iPad will be giving a whole new lease of life to the humble board game, and Label Interactive is getting in there right off the bat with its Game Table app which is available on the iTunes App Store for an introductory price of 99 cents. The app includes such classic games as Checkers, Chess, Poker, Solitaire, and lots of card games such as Poker, with a virtual deck of cards that can be dealt, flipped and shuffled just like a real deck . The game tables, boards and pieces are all photo-realistic, and the intuitive controls feature gesture recognition. The game plays with full 1024x768 resolution and simulated physics. One word of warning though, the app plays exactly like a regular board game or card game, meaning that there’s no AI to play against, and it won’t calculate scores for you or teach you how to play. The games are purely and simply no-frills board games to play with friends and family, just virtual ones rather than actual boards with actual pieces. If you bear that in mind, you won’t be disappointed when the pieces don’t move on their own!

    Will the chess game have a learning feature for those that have never learned the game before?
