In order to play a board game like Monopoly or Chess or Scrabble, you need just the right equipment. Alas, most of the time when you are hanging out with friends, you don’t have a Monopoly or Chess or Scrabble board with you.
But soon that won’t be a problem. As soon as you and your friends put on your XR specs, the board will materialize on the table in front of you.
On the one hand, this seems like a step backward. Instead of a being tangible experience, these games will become ephemeral.
Yet there is another way of looking at it. Many more people will be able to play them. And that can’t be a bad thing, right?
