Transfer saved games from old to new iPad Mini

I should probably know the answer to this (after having 2 iPads, 1 iPad Mini and 2 iPhones), but when purchasing a new iPad, is there anyway to transfer game data (your progress in a particular game app) to the new iPad?

I realize that doing a backup and then setting up the new iPad from that backup will restore stuff like pictures, music, etc. and will tell iTunes what apps were on the original iPad - but I don't believe that game data (again progress in the game not the actual app) will not be saved/synced.

So - is there anyway (including a third party app - but not to the extent of jail breaking either iPad) to do this?

Thanks.

Thanks for those Tom but if you read my post, the "problem" is not transferring the apps - it is transferring SAVED GAMES AND DATA from one to the other. The two backup solutions you referenced (which I have used in the past) only transfer your basic settings and tells the new iPad what apps were installed. They are then re-downloaded and installed from either iTunes on your computer or from Apple via the Cloud. But these represent fresh installs of the games - any progress on the first iPad is lost.

While iTunes can do that, I used DeTune, the successor to exPod for those transfer issues.
