SDG Oh Nuts! ''

Created by Jordan Schann

A red squirrel and a blue squirrel hold a red and blue hole. Red and blue nuts fall from the sky. The goal of the game is for the two players to work together to put the red nuts in the red hole, and the blue nuts in the blue hole. Each player has a robot arm, each controlled by two mice (i.e., 4 mice total). Players can grab and move the nuts, and even pass them to each other.
