If you made it to the 2010 Weekender, you might have seen the Pocketgame display – dozens of designs for easy-to-play games you can keep in your pocket, entered for the Cadbury pocketgame competition.
A couple of weeks ago, a collection of judges (including me) narrowed the entries down to ten – and these ten are now open for a public vote, here.
For the next stage, two of the ten games are going to be turned into proper physical prototype versions, sent out to thousands of players – and it’s up to YOU YES YOU (well, and any other voters) to choose which two those will be.
The games are up for voting here, and they’re well worth a look. There’s…
- The chalk racetrack fun of Flick Racer – it’s a bit hard to read, but there’s a bigger version here (disclaimer: this one’s from James Wallis, who shares an office with Hide&Seek, and whose chocolate digestives we ate while he was on holiday)
- The straightforward and brightly pretty Choc-a-Block
- The charming balancing game Stackits, where the box is part of the play
- A selection of cunning papercraft-lite penny-flicking sports
- And six more, so do poke around and pick a favourite!
