Tinycade is a platform designed to help game designers build their own mini arcade games by hand. With this platform, one can craft functioning game controllers out of everyday materials such as cardboard and toothpicks.

By utilizing computer vision markers, we can create a variety of inputs without a single wire. In this pictorial, we discuss the functionality of Tinycade and showcase three games that demonstrate the variety of controls possible with this platform.
