Charu Chaudhary  :  Game Designer

“Arrangement” simulates matchmaking by asking potential partners to draw identical drawings through verbal guidance alone. Players may play as husband, wife, or a parent of one of the two for a total of four players. The husband and wife are given mehndi cones that they will use to draw designs on their hands and forearms. While the husband and wife sit back to back, their respective parents describe the same design to them, without using hand gestures or confirming what the player has drawn. If the husband and wife’s drawings match, they can move on to a more difficult drawing in the next deck. Make it through all three decks to successfully prove your compatibility and win the game!
