Abstract:

In this paper we present Vancouver Maneuver, a game for mobile devices using Augmented Reality (AR) software to create a cooperative board game experience. Utilizing principles from both digital and analogue board game design, a hybrid game design approach is proposed. By doing so we combine the physical and social aspects of co-located tabletop gaming with the computing power and aesthetics of digital games. The goal is to identify and transfer applicable mechanics from analogue and digital game design to this new form of gaming experience.
