The main challenge was to take the essence of the traditional Colombian ring toss game and extract its essential elements to implement them in the proposed design. We started with the actual game and began to ask ourselves what was really needed to play and how we could be take advantage of its historic richness and the story behind the game.
The Research and Concept Development phase took about 1.5 months. In these stages, the existing game was analyzed and broken down into is main elements and interactions. After several brainstorming and sketching sessions, we managed to get the right aesthetics, and also perfected the manufacturing processes to encourage efficiency.
