Collective Play – Pictionary

This is an assignment for Collective Play, in which neither player should be fixed as the leader or the follower – both should lead and follow as closely as possible. This game was created by myself and Hadar Ben-Tzur.

Two players must draw a word together before the buzzer goes off. The trick is that only one player can only press the up and down arrow keys, whereas the other player can only press the left and right arrow keys. See links below.

To succeed, they must take turns leading and following. The link to the video below shows people having a good time playing it.
