Our group thought of a game that can be played relatively fast but still has a competitive edge. The game consists of two game pieces, a board, dice, and a ping pong ball with a basket. This game is mostly luck of the roll. The goal is to ultimately end up in the end-zone. This is done by outscoring (roll a higher number) your opponent.
This game has a feature to where if you and your opponent both roll the same number you have a face off. On three both players have to bounce the ping pong ball into the target before the other. The loser has to move back a space. This is a tiny source of adrenaline. On page 207 McGonigal talks about “Dancers high”. The small sense of euphoria while doing something active. This small movement can influence the game and give you a sense of pride along with some adrenaline.
People would love our game since it is a very quick and easy game that can pass time but also keeps your attention.
