Teams with two members each will have an overall time budget of 24 hours spread over the first three days in order to build an extraordinary case out of an identical standard case. During the 24 hours the visitors of the gamescom can watch the teams turning a “boring” standard case into something unique. This is quite spectacular as even sparks will be thrown out.
