  • Electronic Augmentation of Board Games through Smartphones Gert Thijs Mentor: Gonzalo Parra Promotor: Prof. Erik Duval
  • Overview• Recap• Implementation phases• Implementation first prototype• Demo• Evaluation first prototype• Required changes• Next steps
  • Recap - Subject• Hybrid analog-digital board game: • Smartphone supports gameplay • Still physical components • Still people coming together• Why smartphones? • Portable, powerful, ubiquitous • Bring your own device
  • Recap - Power Grid
  • Recap - Power Grid• Player manages a power company: • Buys power plants • Buys resources for plants • Connects cities to power grid • Powers cities using resources to earn money• Player who can power the most cities wins
  • Recap - Power Grid• Currently: • Play money: one player needs to play bank • Power plant market: requires reorganizing • Resource market: needs to be restocked• Menial tasks that don’t add value
  • Implementation phases• First prototype: • Digital money • Digital power plant auctions• Second prototype: • Digital resource management• Final prototype: • Augmented Reality for connecting cities and “magic lens”
  • First prototype• First prototype: • Digital money • Digital power plant auctions • Temporary screens for other phases• Physical money no longer required• Resource management not yet implemented • Plant cards and resource tokens
  • Implementation CHAPTER 7: Network Design Overview 133 • GameKit • Peer to Peer • Bluetooth or WiFiFigure 7–1. A visual representation of a peer-to-peer network using six iOS devices

  • Demo
  • Evaluation• Goal: determine if it all “makes sense”• Method: • 5 users played the game with devices • Afterwards: SUS & custom questionnaire• Results:
  • Evaluation results• Less social • Especially felt during auction phase• Doesn’t “break” fun parts• Reduced physical interactions not problematic• Mixed opinions about screen size • Original game provides a better
  • Required changesFind a way to simultaneously show bothscreens or swiftly switch between them
  • Required changes Increase scrollable area
  • Required changes• Info panels did not refresh immediately• Loss of connection causes deadlock• Better inform players when it’s their turn• Indicate which players can still bid
  • Next steps• Fix issues found during test• Implement resource management• Second prototype: Test again• Add augmented reality • To connect cities • To consult public info (magic lens)• Final evaluations
  • Next steps• Aspects to evaluate: • social aspect • “fun” • efficiency• Method: • 1/2 game original version • 1/2 hybrid version
