People Pretzel is a fun game board. The project also has potentials to accommodate users to develop and invent their own new rules to play different games. To present a project in 2 minutes time slot or a poster is not an easy task. Design of actions, skit with props, or a story script will help audience understand what the project is about. If Ken and Orit can act out/extending their body movement by stretching their arms out and about to some big colorful dots on a big piece of paper or on the screen the effect will be tremendous. I personally will even go as far as coordinating presentors to wear bright colored shirts such as blue and red that corresponds to the led lights for the gamebaord. The poster size is unfortunately not very large. Jim's suggestions about showing 'flesh' is good. I also like the idea of handing out the pretzels to people to get their attention to hear the stories. It will also be helpful if the paper reprints are available on the table for anyone who may want to know more. If possible, printing out a bunch of color photos of people playing the game in a display portfolio folder or accordian style postcards will be also useful to show the excitement of such game.
