Is someone aware of such a game (as in "commercially available") ?

For those wondering : RFIDs are essentially very small transponders which can be embedded in an object to electronically identify that object used in conjunction with an RFID reader (without physical contact).

I'm not out to discuss the usefulness or lack of it of such devices for the hobby - I'm merely curious. My personal bet is we'll see collectibles in the next couple of years, if they're not there yet.

Edit : spelling...

don't know about RFID games, but there are already some RFID toys out there - action figures recognizing their partners for interacting in a special way etc.

This is the closest thing I can think of:

There's probably a specific reason you want RFID, but Knitzia has an electronic King Arthur game that isn't RFID, but you might want to take a look at it.

These aren't boardgames, but when I was in Japan a couple of years ago, the arcades had multiplayer games that required collectable cards with RFID chips to be placed on a table with sensors--the most popular seemed to be a soccer/football gave.

See http://ubiks.net/local/blog/jmt/archives3/003971.html for an example.

Hi,

I am a belgian student IWT and am currently working on my master project. And guess what it is? :-)
We are building a boardgame that uses RFID to determine which pieces are standing on which square. The prototype we are building is loosly based on "Pirates of the spanish main". unfortionalty I am bound by a Non-disclosure contract so I can't tell you any details. But if it is finished I'll ask my boss if I can post the demo video online.
