Table Top – Dell’s New 18″ Tablet – The Future of Board Games?

Ever since my agency began receiving Surface tables years ago and I started to see what the original Surface tables could do for board gaming – I was excited for the future.

Then when I saw this video of Settlers of Catan being played on a Surface table I saw the theoretical becoming the reality.

Yet the cost for the hardware and the software that was being developed for it eventually ruined what seemed like such an awesome idea.

And it looks like the idea of possible large-scale board gaming digital devices might be coming back. The iPad has been great for only a handful of games (Smallworld shows some awesome potential) but the leap hasn’t really happened.

As much as I love my board games and all the pieces that come with it, that tactile feel, the space I have to allocate is enormous. I’m always that guy who shows up to a party with a bag full of board games which has to take into consideration what the crowd will play, how many people, and how much time – not to mention the size of the game being carried. The prospect of having some games that can be transported and played easily on a device like this seems incredibly exciting.

For now…I will just dream!

    The HCG diet is considered the latest strategy to drop weight
    incredibly quickly yet still be in a position to eat. You also not need to worry about keeping these HCG Pellets into the right kind of
    environment unlike most of the other HCG drops that either needs to be frozen or kept at room temperature.

    Using the hype around the HCG diet lots of people
    are searching to buy HCG even so you have to also keep in mind that in addition to your HCG drops you will need to also diligently follow
    a superb calorie intake and hence should
    have a good set of HCG diet reipes.

    the web will probably be much more useful than ever before.

    However, when choosing a plastic surgeon some things are to be kept in mind.
    Though plastic surgery gives results quicker than other
    means but you need to have patience. Some proper money movement and a breakaway from the Dolphins could land the tackle in an offense far better
