So far, there are three apps available – Guesstimation, Highlights Hidden Pictures Countdown, and Saturday Night Live – The Game. Also released was Duo Plink, a container that you ‘plink’ tokens into depending on what your answer to the question is. There are two different areas for the two choices, and the device handles all the score keeping, based on those tokens, automatically. So far, there are just two apps available for Plink – The Smithsonian Artifact or Fiction App and Yoomi.
The latest app-cessory we scoped out at NETA is Discovery Bay’s Duo Pop, a set of “pop buttons” and a sensor for playing six different games on the iPad. Once you have the required Duo Pop hardware, you simply need to download the free app. Players use the pop buttons to buzz in for the trivia games or select letters in the word game Swoop. The included Duo sensor is what makes all this magic possible, and a quick demo at the Discovery Bay booth made it clear that this gameplay is addictive–and pretty dang competitive.
