Gaming system and gaming device
In a gaming system to progress a battle game using game progression information in one gaming device and another gaming device, a controller of the one gaming device allows a storage unit to store the game progression information read by a reader and identifies a detected finger motion pattern. When the finger motion pattern coincides with a finger motion pattern for input in the stored game progression information, the controller allows at least part of the game progression information to be transmitted toward the other gaming device through a communication unit to be used for the progress of the game in the other gaming device.
