The first step towards these hybrid games is new cards that can be read by electronic devices. In short; iCards. These games connect card and board games with digital devices like smartphones, tablets or even dedicated readers, designed for a specific application. These connections happen on different levels; is the electronic device used as an add-on, can the game be played without an electronic device as well or is the electronic device the centrepiece of the game? By using innovative technologies a card can become an entry ticket that grants the user access to any form of digital media.
