  • CORNHOLE – The very first home console version of this popular and growing sport takes full advantage of Amico´s motion control and touch screen features! Hundreds of unlockables and so many different challenges, skill levels, and ways to play with family & friends (or even single player if you’d like).
  • FARKLE – Such a unique experience! You’ll be able to see and shake dice on your controller, then toss them up onto the screen when it’s your turn! Classic family entertainment for up to 8 players with individual sets of rules.

The Founder’s Edition of the console is already sold out hence the VIP Edition is now giving fans of the console to get their hands on two brand new versions of the console.
