Board Games For the iPad/iPad mini?

With iOS 5, game center started having the ability to handle turn based social games. Letterpress is the first really well known game taking advantage of this feature.

I'm an iOS developer and am interested in using this feature in a board type game. I'm actually curious why nobody has done this yet( besides EA ).

For instance, one of the first games I ever played on the iPad was Small World and immediately thought how cool it would be if it could have networked turn-based multi-player capabilities.

The purpose of this post is to ask if there are actually people interested in playing board type games on their iPad?

I'm thinking more of the style of hardcore games, where there is great strategy involved with a strong theme.

If you're reading this, please let me know your thoughts.
