Team Memory Game - Design

Over the next few weeks, we are showing you how we made our Team Memory game that debuted at the Maker Faire UK 2015 and featured in our previous blog post: Inside: Maker Faire UK 2015.

This is an essential stage for any project as it covers what functions the project will achieve or solve. In this case, the idea was to have a large scale interactive game for people of all ages to enjoy at the Maker Faire UK in Newcastle.
