Abstract

In this paper we present a novel method of hybridizing physical board games by adding dynamic and digitally controlled fields utilizing electrochromic inks. In particular we built electrochromic displays that fit the hexagon fields on the Settlers of Catan board game and thereby added the ability to change a fields resources during game play. In this paper we report on the prototypical implementation and two preliminary studies that indicate how these dynamic fields can increase the excitement and reward of playing the game.
