Let's play

Virtual worlds, anonymity, fictitious characters and "gambling" together are only a few aspects that make online games so appealing. The pinball machine shows that these factors also work "offline". Two players in an anonymous box, communicatively connected by a "team speaker", have to coordinate to master the game. Like in a real mass multiplayer online role-playing game, such as "World of Warcraft" and its numerous different offshoots. Doing it alone will not work!

Can you master the game? And how much does the boundary between reality and fiction blur?
