Magnetize me is a two player game where one player is mounted with 2-5 Move Controllers and the other player with 2 magnets. One “blue” magnet and one “yellow” magnet. The magnets and move controllers will be mounted however possible (initially we used duct tape. Now we’ve made some nice straps for them 😀 ) and on different body parts (up to the players how “erotic” it should be). When the game is on, a random Move Controller will light up in either blue or yellow showing which magnet to be connect that controller to. The players must then keep that controller and magnet close together while dancing to the beat. The more you dance (move to the beat), the higher the score. This however, also makes it more difficult! And fun!
The game is best played with 5 move controllers. It will need some sort of straps for each (gaffa caaan work, but nicer straps are to be preferred) and 2 strong magnets, preferably neodymium. The bigger and the stronger, the easier the game.
The game has successfully and enjoyably been played at various festivals and parties around the world including The Wild Rumpus at Fantastic Arcade, Play:vienna, w00t and Hovergarden among other random parties.
