In this paper, means of enriching computer entertainment experiences by emphasizing physical and social game elements are discussed. A conceptual framework in which the relations between the virtual, the physical, and the social domains are modelled is presented. Interfaces that mediate between the domains are discussed along with a complementary software architecture that helps developing hybrid computer games. Finally, sample games that follow the approach of physical and social augmentation are presented.
