On Friday, Hasbro launches its version of board game combined with iPad app, The Game of Life: zAPPed Edition. Placed in the center of the board, the iPad serves as electronic spinner, displays clips from America’s Funniest Home Videos, and administers mini games for bonus cash.

I do not believe there is an electronic component to the board. That is, the iPad does not plug in and track where a playing piece has moved. When landing on one of the several types of “app space”, players choose the appropriate icon on the tablet screen.
