F1 TRADING CARD GAME 2018 APP
IOS & Android Price Free (but includes in-app purchases) f1tcg.com
In the post-bernie Ecclestone world, Formula 1 is continuing with its push into the world of digital media. Following the launch of an official podcast, F1 TV (not in the UK), an esports F1 championship and live F1 shows on both Twitter and Facebook, this new ‘app’ for your smart phone is the latest piece of F1 digital content.
Simply, it is a card-collecting game, whereby users amass and then trade cards (think old-school Top Trumps) with other registered users across the world. The F1 Trading Card Game includes collectible electronic images of drivers, tracks and teams that have specific updates every grand prix race weekend.
The F1 Trading Card Game also has an in-app community where head-to-head racing takes place and where fans can find friends to challenge and trade cards with. Every card contains attributes to help build a winning deck and while the phone app – developed by Virttrade – is free initially, there are a number of in-app purchases that need to be acquired to progress.
