Have you ever invented a game? Have you ever played a game invented by a computer?
Speedgate is a game played on a field with a rugby-looking ball. Here’s a short introduction to the game.
Using only what you saw in the video, what strategies can you imagine for this game?
Can you come up with strategies that are different from other games you know? Are you even able to come up with rules and strategies that have no reference to existing games?
Try breaking into groups and coming up with something totally different as a game. What was the coolest idea you heard?
