Pollie Barden, Cory Forsyth, Jaki Levy, and Oren Ross are graduate student entering their second year in Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University. With some quick brainstorming and lots of inspiration around them, they came up with a game based on re-interpreting your surrounding environment. One day they hope to have everyone in the world playing snagu, but would be fine with just everyone in America.
