Windows Phone 8 users can now download a free card game, similar to Top Trumps, that uses NFC as the main form of interaction. In NFC Cars two players tap their phones together to receive a deck of cards and the aim is to then outscore the other player by comparing a category displayed on a card, such as top speed. The comparison is executed by once again tapping the two devices together.
