The game itself is loaded in a browser window visible to all players. Players use their personal phones to call a specified number, and each phone’s keypad functions as a game controller for an onscreen tank avatar. Because people bring their own controllers, the game supports up to 26 players, although things get confusing after about 10. The game works with smartphones, dumb phones, Google Voice, and land lines, although we never quite figured out how to play on the CS Department fax machine. I built the gameplay and the graphics.
