Gimme Friction Baby — Cool game

gimmeFriction.jpg

Gimme Friction Baby by Wouter Visser is a fun, addicting game of angles, not unlike pool.

The omission of instructions was deliberate – Wouter believes that including instructions on such an abstract concept could potentially be more confusing than just letting the players figure it out for themselves.

Scrabble updates rules to allow use of proper nouns…

From The BBC:

The rules of word game Scrabble are being changed for the first time in its history to allow the use of proper nouns, games company Mattel has said.

Place names, people’s names and company names or brands will now count.

Mattel, which brings out a new version of the game containing amended rules in July, hopes the change will encourage younger people to play.

Monopoly goes circular and does away with cash…

From Pocket Lint:

Monopoly owners Hasbro will be launching a circular version of the board game to celebrate the 75th anniversary of its creation the company has announced at this year’s Toy Fair.

The game, which stays the same when it comes to gameplay, will involve players moving around the board as if it were a roundabout rather than the traditional square set we’ve all come to know and love.

But it’s not just a random move to give die-hard fans a reason to buy yet another version, it turns out one of the first concepts for the board game was circular according to Hasbro.

Not to be out done by the latest video games, however, the Monopoly board will do away with cash and the chance to raid the bank when no-one is looking. Players instead will be issued with a chip and pin credit card and a central console that plays banker. No fair.

The strangely compelling tale of Alice and Kev…

Welcome to the tale of Alice and Kev.

This is an experiment in playing a homeless family in The Sims 3. I created two Sims, moved them in to a place made to look like an abandoned park, removed all of their remaining money, and then attempted to help them survive without taking any job promotions or easy cash routes. It’s based on the old ‘poverty challenge’ idea from The Sims 2, but it turned out to be a lot more interesting with The Sims 3’s living neighborhood features.

aliceKev1

When you create a Sim in The Sims 3, you can give them personality traits that alter their behaviour. Kev is hot-headed, mean-spirited, and inappropriate. He also dislikes children, and he’s insane. He’s basically the worst Dad in the world. He is a horrible human being, but he’s also amusing to watch.

aliceKev2

His daughter Alice is a kind-hearted clumsy loser. With those traits, that Dad, and no money, she’s going to have a hard life.

aliceKev3

She’s managed to break almost everything in the house now, all in a matter of hours. I guess this is her clumsiness and unluckiness making itself known. She does her best to apologise to Zedadias, but his mind appears to be elsewhere.

Start here.

Chloe Ruchon: ‘Barbie foot’ at DMY Berlin Design Festival 09

From Design Boom:

‘barbiefoot’ by french design chloe ruchon combines the iconic doll with table football.
on one side it uses barbie’s pink, frilly world and on the other its uses the predominantly
male world of table soccer, the one that is traditionally called ‘babyfoot’ in france.
barbie became a symbol of ideal femininity, with exacerbated body proportions
and a vast landscape of fantasies surrounding this cliche.

by bringing the two worlds together ‘barbiefoot’ wishes to stimulate thoughts
about different mentalities and the pre- digested everyday ideas we commonly face.

the product was created in partnership with mattel brands consumer products
and babyfoot bonzini.

‘barbiefoot’ was part of the DMY youngsters exhibition at DMY berlin design festival 09.
