xPirate from Exim Games is a forthcoming board game of searching for hidden treasure. It comes with a rotating central unit to hold your iPhone or iTouch, which acts as die roller, secret location map, and combat resolution device.

Unfortunately, while it looks cool, the game play looks to abysmally dull. Push a button: you move. Push a button: oh no a kraken! Push a button: you win! The game play explanation starts in the video at 1:20.

The game is scheduled for release this fall. Here’s hoping Exim will program something more interesting into the game play before it gets released.
