HPH better known as Hot Potato Hack is a game born out of Project M in Greensboro, Alabama. Designers focused on a potato to inspire new thinking. Players work together under specific time constraints, cycling through numerous scenarios to unlock ingenuity. After hacking potatoes with everyday objects, players developed a story around the potato. HPH can be used as creative blocks and bridge ingenuity gaps in any situation.
