Group Whack-A-Potato hack

Whack-A-Mole reinvented, with small children and potatoes.
Materials: Computer, Makey Makey board with 4 crocodile clip cables, 3 potatoes (or other vegetables), 1 banana, lemon, carrot or other easy to hold conductive object, selection of other robust fruit/vegetables for further experimentation, digital camera
Time: 1 hour per activity
Software: Loom Open-Source Game Engine

Things to try:
Try multi-player co-op mode! Two (or more) people can all hold the ground connection. Or each other. Then they can all play the game together by whacking the potatoes with their free hands.
