Project: big scale gambling game

I believe every game needs objective (goal) so my project is narrow down that has strong objective. One of the strong objective game could be gambling (because of money involvement makes strong goal) so I want to create new types of gambling game. And so far, I realized from class game exercise, more people is more fun to game, there fore, I'm thinking of big scale gambling game.

Toy is interactive but a game has goals

According to Will Wright: Sim City is not game, but a toy. because it provides no objective: No victory condition, no goals.

"Toy is interactive but a game has goals"

I strongly agree Will Wright's Idea of "Toy", so I think "The Exquisite corpse" is toy and it's not game. If people don't care the result, such as The Exquisite Corpse and Scavenger hut game that we played in the class could be only toy because there was no goals of winning. (some people could do it just be cause it part of class) However I think every game could become toy that only has interaction. For example I use to play "Street Fighter II". Once I finish every characters ending; if there is no one to play with me than I feel like this game becomes "toy" I remember my self playing street fighter with no objective: just to kill some time.

Game is everywhere and I love to play those variety games. However very sometime I feel like to design a game, which other games couldn't get me fresh from my katharsis. My favorite game is Black Jack, just because I often have good hand of probability. As an artist, I don't have goal of big ambition, only I want to have fun during my life-time. right now I'm very much into stop-frame animation and it's about chess game.
