Abstract [en]

The goal of this study is to research how the digitalization of a table top gameaffects the game and its gameplay. We are researching this by first havingparticipants play chess, and online chess, and the interviewing them about theirexperiences with the both games. The main effects of digitalization are inputcontrols. When digitalizing a table top game, there is one thing that the designercannot control at all, which is, the necessity of input controls. However, thedesign for these controls is up to the designer. When digitalizing a game, therules ted to get enforced by the programming. Mistakes that could be committedin the table top version are no longer possible due to the rule enforcementcaused by the programming. It is also possible to use the digital realm to yourbenefit by adding features such as highlighting in chess, which is only possible inthe digital version. Immersion is also affected by the digitalization; the possiblelack of a visible and present opponent can alter how the players experience thegameplay.

Abstract [sv]

Målet med den här studien är att forska kring hur digitaliseringen av ettbrädspel påverkar spelet och dess spelande. Vi utför vår forskning genom attförst låta deltagare spela schack, och onlineschack, för att sedan intervjua demangående deras upplevelser med de båda spelen. De huvudsakliga effekterna avdigitaliseringen är inmatningskontrollerna. När man digitaliserar ett brädspel såfinns det en sak som designers inte alls kan kontrollera. Detta är nödvändighetenav inmatningskontroller. Designen för dessa kontroller däremot, kan designerspåverka. När man digitaliserar ett spel så brukar ofta reglerna bli förstärkta avprogrammeringen. Misstag som spelare kunde begå i brädspelsversionen, kaninte längre begås tack vare regelförstärkningen som programmeringen bidrartill. Det är även möjligt att använda den digitala världen till ens fördel genom attlägga till vissa saker, så som markeringen i onlineschack, vilket bara är möjligt iden digitala versionen. Digitaliseringen påverkar även inlevelsen som spelarnaupplever. Den möjliga saknaden av en synlig och närvarande motspelare kanändra hur spelarna upplever spelandet.
