This is the first time I've encountered a game that involves cooking its pieces before play; the 'Noisy Jelly' game comes in a kit that requires players to concoct different jelly shapes that, once placed upon the game board, respond musically when they are touched.
Games that are completely interactive are usually the most fun and Noisy Jelly allows users to be playing even before the game actually starts. The kit comes equipped with jelly powder, water and coloring. Users pour some powder into the provided basins, add some water and coloring then mix away. After ten minutes the jelly will have formed and can be placed on the board. The board has sensors that respond to the jelly being touched and each musical reply is formulated based on the distance and strength of contact.
