—Collectible card games can be ‘addictive’, more so if the game allows the player to duel against another player using the collectible cards. More often than not, a collectible card game has its digital video game counterpart. Currently physical card games and digital games do not interact with one another. The authors believe that the user experience could be significantly improved by allowing the physical cards to interact with the digital video game. The technology being used by the authors in the development of this paper is RFID Technology. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a technology that relies on radio frequency to communicate with data storing tags. The basic concept of this paper is tagging cards with RFID tags to make it detectable by the computer via RFID Readers. The aim of this paper is to combine physical card games with digital video games. This paper also strives to achieve a better user experience for the gamer by using this technology.
