We created a prototype to test the interaction and appeal with kids. The goal was to create a game which reasonably resembled our vision and test it on an upcoming camping trip with seven year old boys and girls.
We purchased some wood disks from Michaels, colored and glued printed clip-art images to them Voila!!
The game was received well. The kids easily understood the game rules and had a blast playing. We were interested to see if the novelty would wear off. We were pleased to watch, over the course of about 90 mins, two of the campers playing the game as it was designed as well as making up their own rules using the game pieces we provided.
