Chuck E Cheese a Fun Place to Visit

At Chuck E Chesse I saw the exact type of game that I wanted to create for our edcation arcade.  The football toss, where you get about 60 seconds to toss a football through various targets that had differing values.  The game was ok but the belt that returned the ball was way to slow so you only actually got about 4 tosses.  This was one of the flaws in the game mechanics and I think there should have been more time.

This game will be hard to design around an educational lesson, I have a few ideas such as the player must answer educational questions that have a certain value and if they get the question right then they will get a certain number of tosses.  So you have answer questions to get tosses and then if your tosses hit the target then you get tickets.  Im still contemplating ideas for this game, not sure if I can pull it off so I am also thinking of other games I might like to design….

I guess its all trial and error…

  1. I too am struggling to make this game more educational. This game has a lot of potential and in my opinion was the most fun (despite it being broke).

  2. Can not wait to see your final piece, I’m sure soon enough you’ll be able to come up with a great idea!

  3. very talented camera work by whoever the cameraman was. Education as defined by this class is kinda hard since so much of physical education is technique and learning by doing. Maybe the targets can be educational somehow. Like instead of just numbers they represent a food with a certain number of calories.

  4. I’m in the same boat about being about to design the game, but I would love to play a FAIR version of this. The one at Chucky Cheese flawed, as you pointed out, but also the clock ran at least twice as fast as a normal one.

    Anyway, hope you can pull it off. I want to give it a go.

  5. It would be great if Professor Smith would let you and ezmike work together since you guys have the same game in mind. It would be amazing what you both can come up with by putting your thoughts, creativity and skills together. I know theres not much time left and getting together would be tough but it would be interesting to see what you two come up with.

  6. The game looks pretty cool, I didn’t get a chance to play it there but I’m sure yours will be more much better.

  7. I had to scrap this game idea, it was too game like with out a lesson so I went in a different direction…
