I can certainly remember some warm and happy times spent around the table playing board games with my family when I was younger. The companionship and happy occasion was worth its weight in gold. With your iPad, you can enjoy all the glories of colorful, action-packed and fun-filled games like these. One really splendid game I came across recently was Fluke HD. It caught my eye with its intricate design and gorgeous interface. Plus it's what I call a "modern-classic" bearing resemblance to the popular games of childhood where you move your game-pieces through obstacles from start to finish. Yet this game carries a sophisticated, electronic flair.

Fluke HD will challenge you and whet your competitive spirit. The theme is quite simple though. Players are each given four colored tokens which they must successfully navigate across any one of the game’s 3 unique boards before their opponents in order to win. Note that you can only win if you are able to get all four of your game pieces across the finish line. Simple enough? Think again! There are many different interactive obstacles on each of the game’s boards! Play against friends or enjoy the convenience of opponents via the Game Center.

Fluke HD blends sharp, beautiful graphics with smooth gameplay (and throws in a bit of Fluke HD addiction too) to ensure your enjoyment! What I noticed most of all was the attention to detail and excellent graphics. Some of the features of this cool iPad board game app are as follows:

- Live multi-player capability
- Game Center integration
- OpenFeint enabled
- 4 uniquely themed board layouts: Carnival, Medievel, Alien World and Racetrack
- A1 support with 3 difficulty levels
- Interactive online leaderboards
- Unlockable game achievements
- Original game music and in-game sound effects

Start off by checking the Settings menu, selecting Sound FX, music and volume. Then decide how many friends will play, choose color tokens and enter their names. Now you're ready to play so tap the dice in the middle of the board. When you do, a number will magically appear. Tap the game piece you wish to move, and it will automatically move the number of spaces the dice has displayed. And so the game goes, with each player trying to out-race the other through obstacles and setbacks to get to the finish. When you land on the "?", who knows what surprise will await you? For example, you may be given instructions to remove a token, take 2 extra steps, advance or recede. Note that you may only add in another of your 4 game pieces when you roll a 6. There's so much to love about Fluke HD. It's fascinating how well a board game can function in an electronic version.

COOL CONCLUSION: "Fluke HD intrigues with its quality graphics, design and blend of classic with modern gameplay!"
