Style: Collaboration, Communication, Chaos
Time: Evergreen (2 + minutes)
Players: 1 - 50
Players are launching balloons that are sailing away across the sky and falling onto the dangerous terrain. The goal is to see how many can be collectively launched and kept re-fueled and flying simultaneously.
Balloons is an ideal opening game as it requires no explanation, and people can immediately start and play on their own as they gather and wait for their fellow players to arrive for the event.
As more people play it becomes increasingly harder to keep all the balloons afloat and more and more communication and co-ordination is needed to get the right people to the right place to refuel their balloons in time.
