Prior to the beginning of the hackathon, my team members and I were discussing NFC technology; our fascination with it; and how impactful it will be in future. As such it was only natural that the idea we decided to work on involved NFC technology. We settled on a game of tag using NFC, hence NFC Tag. NFC Tag is an android game where a game session is started by a game master on the NFC Tag website and users can then join the game on their app. Upon joining, they see a map indicating the locations of other players who they can then find and tag by simply bumping their phone to theirs. The game master has the ability to give hints and increase or decrease the five minute game time.
