You are the Hero

You are the Hero: mashed game hits.
Mashups not only refer to tunes that come out of working out two songs; they can also be about games. As part of this game you will enjoy “a kind of playing” of UNO and DJ Hero plus dancing. Compete in teams to reach the “DJ” podium in order to set the dance steps that all the other players have to perform. Enjoy the beats of music and dictating intelligent, funny or complicated moves to your fellows in a community-induced party moment.

Is it possible to mash up UNO and DJ Hero without losing the simplicity of the moment?

Format: Game
