One of the most popular games with the crowds of children at Now Play This was a giant version of a game that came out before they were born. It is essentially a multiplayer version of Snake, which graced mobile phones years before Angry Birds. The game screen is displayed on the floor, with the directional buttons placed around the edge of the display, two on each side. To guide their snake toward dots, and away from the edges or their opponent, each player ends up running around the display to stamp on their buttons. Naturally there’s a lot of real-world interference in the form of shoving and sabotage, creating an interesting, very noisy, dynamic. © The Guardian.com, Apr 4, 2016
