The object of the game is to control speech recognition software (Siri, Kinect, Google Glass) only through singing.
You win every time you do this. You win more if there are other people around.
This game can be played by anyone attending the 2013 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, California.
The object of the game is to avoid being badgered.
The other object of the game is to badger badgers.
A badger is any person wearing their GDC badge around their neck OUTSIDE the Moscone center, on any street other than that bit of Howard running between the buildings, and 4th between Howard and Minna (see map).
If you spot a badger, go up to them and say “Badger!” (This is called badgering.)
If they give you a confused look, tell them you’re playing Badger, and explain the rules.
Confused or not, make sure they take off their badge.
If you’re badgered by someone who is, themselves, a badger, you can retort with “MUSHROOM!"
And then you should both highfive.
And then take off your badges.

This game requires Facebook to play, and can only be played on your birthday.
Your goal is to earn as many points as possible.
You earn one point for every birthday message that somebody posts on your Facebook wall.
You lose one point for every “Happy Birthday [your name here]!”
You lose two points for every “Happy Birthday!” (with one or more exclamation points).
You lose three points for every “Happy Birthday” (with no exclamation).
This game requires an Xbox 360 with Kinect.
The object of the game is to issue commands to the Kinect’s voice recognition system, without ever saying any of the actual command words the Kinect is listening for.
For example, if you’re watching a movie on Netflix and you want to pause, don’t say “Xbox, pause” — say “Eggs bugs, boss.”
When you play this game, everyone’s a winner.
