Week 6 - Hot Potato Game

Hot Potato


We followed the 'micro:bit' tutorial to create a virtual 'Hot Potato' game.


The original game is where you throw around a hot potato while a timer counts down and the person holding it when the time is up...loses.


Our virtual game can be played with any number of micro:bits, using the same radio frequency, however we don't actually throw the micro:bits, we just transfer a 'hot potato' image from one device to another by shaking our device (as if we are throwing it) & when the time is up, a skull is displayed on the loser's screen!

Here we are all sat round in a circle playing our virtual game of 'Hot Potato'.
