identify the problem

For this challenge, you will create a game. It could be a board game, a carnival game, an arcade game, a game that involves dice, a ball, figures, etc. Could you code a game? It’s your game, design it however you like!

design a solution

01. Generate an idea. What would be the objective of the game? How many players could play at once? How does someone win? Who would be your intended audience? Is your game accessible – could anyone play it?
02. Build a prototype. What do you have laying around that you could use for your game? Parts of another game/toy but used in a different way? Craft materials, recyclables, building blocks, sticks, etc. get creative and be resourceful!
03. Test Your Product. Make sure to test your game and make changes to improve your game. Ask someone to test it out. It is too hard? Too confusing?

04. Share your idea. Film a short (Max 2 min video) pitch of your invention. Include details like who is it for, what problem does it solve, etc. Have fun! Upload/share your video to twitter, facebook or Instagram. Don't forget to tag us!
