Sequoia Games looks to capitalize on NBA Top Shot fever with an AR tabletop game – TechCrunch
Sequoia Games, a new game studio launching out of stealth, is aiming for a hit with its tabletop AR game that’s looking to find an audience in a post-Top Shot world. Collectibles are incredibly hot right now and while there’s been a lot of attention on digital-only collectibles, Sequoia Games’ hybrid approach is probably one that will likely find some new audience segments. With mechanics similar to other popular trading card games, users can augment those tiles with power-up tiles. The company is working on a first-party marketplace for the tiles, though buyers will have to actually purchase and ship the physical tiles even if they are only playing on mobile. Like Top Shot, Sequoia Games boasts an official partnership with the NBA and national players’ association.
