The physical challenge to pull a rope against virtual opponents makes great fun and shows an unique approach for creative game-environments.

First the player is asked to pull the rope as hard as possible so that the computer can choose his opponent. Then the game starts. The object is to pull as many opponents off the screen as possible in two minutes.

The installation "Tug of War" was built by the Ars Electronica Center for the Playscape Zone of the Millenniums Dome, London.
