Making hybrid games* is more and more popular now. I want to show you my favourites and I'm waiting for your propositions. We could make new, fresh list of hybrid games!


* by hybrid games I mean boardgames which are using another devices, medium or stimulate different senses in gameplay - like using special app (what is compulsory) or sounds/smell

"In Alchemists, two to four budding alchemists compete to discover the secrets of their mystical art." One of the most popular hybrid game! Everyone loves the fact, that you need to have app to play this game. It makes game more funny and interesting! And of course you do alchemy! So it's awesome!

Ok, that is easy - you are humanity’s last hope! Alien invasion, worldwide panic and what is most important here: the game’s free companion app! "The effect of the app is to immerse you deep into the dramatic tension at the core of XCOM: The Board Game, and it ensures that the game presents a challenging and cooperative (or solo) experience like no other." And I agree. App and UFO - it's awesome!

"Golem Arcana is a digitally enhanced miniatures boardgame that leverages the power of a smartphone or tablet to deliver an unprecedented and engaging experience." We have here Golems, Knights but the best things for me is TDI stylus - tools which makes connection between gameboard and app. It looks like nice pen and I think it's great idea to use sth like that! And one more - rly good looking figures which for me are little pieces of art! How awesome it sounds? ;d

"Roar! is the one and only unique hybrid game - a rare mixture of the traditional boardgame with the pawns and an app on a mobile device, all together to create a new experience". This one is a first game, where you have to get sounds clues to find hiding 'objects' - here we have hiding monsters! It's great game not only for adults, it also educational game for kids! Of course you need free app - for scanning board, making sounds and showing, where the monster is. I think it so much fun. Definitely awesome!

Your job is to assemble a gang by recruiting new members and equipping them with gear (deck building/auctions). You'll then build your operations and interests across the board (tile-building/placement) and if you can keep a tight grip on them, your reputation will grow (area control). But watch out for the other upstart gangs trying to carve out their own territory. If you leave your turf undefended, somebody else might just take it from you (dudes-on-a-map dice combat). And don't forget about the alien overlords...

Possibly the first boardgame to use software as a companion.

The "app" (or electronic device with a mini-computer made specifically for this game since the concept of "apps" didn't exist at the time), make various noise that depicts the movement of the thief. You have to interpret the noises on the board, trying to figure out where the thief is.

A precusor to Scotland Yard... where there is no need for anyone to play to thief. The AI in the electronic thing does it for you.

Still a good game. This one needs to come out again... You can still find functional copies of it here and there for non out-of-this-world prices.

"Hungry Monsters is a real-time, extremely fast paced, quick party game!" You have empty belly and little critters on table which you want to eat! And some mission to do! It's rly fast and funny game. And of course you need free app counting points and checking, if your food is correct. ; ) For me awesome for nice party with friends!

"Third Eye is the truly terrifying hybrid card game of cutthroat decisions, quick wit and brutal interactions". It is, I guess, first card horror hybrid game ever. Their cards recognition system looks great! There is a ghost in the room trying to posses one of you. You have to find him and move him away from you. There is a app of course - it's counting, how many point of life all of you have - you have no idea, only app knows it, which is pretty cool! ;d And tablet or smartphone are is sth like craft table, it can read cards and making moves. Sounds awesome for me!

The first RTB (real time boardgame, yeah I made that up) I played.

A soundtrack in the background tells you what happens. Aliens attacking you, communication system down (no talking allowed) etc. You try to coordinate with your fellow crew members what to do and program your character. Only after the 10 minute track is over your can let go the stress and see if everything will work out as you have planned.

Awesome! There are apps and flash programs out there which will give you an even richer experience. (video, more voices, custom or random cenarios)
