Hit Me! is a two-player hyper-interactive, physical game that tests speed, agility and the ability to take good snapshots. Utilizing wireless technology and incorporating the concept of the metagame, Hit Me! encourages face-to-face real-world interactions, not only by the players but also by the spectators.

The object of the game is to hit the opponent's button on top of the head. Once a hit is made, the hitter's camera takes a snapshot of the victim. The hitter receives a point for the hit, and up to 2 additional points can be awarded by the Judge based on the quality of the snapshot. The snapshots, points and times are projected on a wall for spectators to observe.

"Go For Broke, Before Broke Goes For You!"

Go For Broke is a multi-player plinko game designed by Caroline Spivack. The game represents a tounge-in-cheek, social and political commentary on the the causes and effects of the current recession. The "plinko" game style was chosen primarily for its heavy use of chance and luck; much like today's market.

Once upon a time being alone meant you were unable to play a decent game of rock-paper-scissors, but now you can finally amuse yourself with just your own hand.
