This is a thead About mini game ideas, and working on them.
There will be about 4 Mini games that last about 30 sec to 90 sec max.
If you have any ideas i would love to hear them. If you feel like working on a mini game feel free to build one, or ask for the help needed, and it will be ported into the game. (If more then 4 are built, ill make more room or randomly pick 4 games to be used when the game starts. to keep it fresh.

More Info
Cost in general i am thinking 1-3 cash sounds about right.
If the game cost 1 , then they shouldn't be able to make more then 3 cash if its single player, but if its a game with alot of people and there changes to win go down a bit then the award can be higher.
The games can have up to 8 players them, that ai can be involved in,(Doing ai isn't a problem for me)
These are games that people could use to make some ect cash, well they arnt riding or making coasters.. Its hard to explain much more then that.

Basic Outline
Here is a format to try and keep the ideas tidy.
