Auto-Combat is a digital hybrid board game adaptation of the auto-battler genre. It uses NFC embedded cards to interact with a specially designed surface to seamlessly communicate with the user’s phone. Players acquire cards, representing different units, and form a synergistic army with them. Once the physical cards have been arranged on a surface, the characters come alive and battle your opponent’s army in real-time on the phone. Only through strategy, planning, and a little luck, can someone overcome others and be declared the winner.
