Scarcity – in any number of arenas, including housing, resources and opportunity – is a perennial preoccupation in the collective imagination. I take an oblique view of scarcity, especially as it relates to housing, by interpreting the idea through the lens of games and play.

"Real Estate Beats" is a re-imagining of the game, Musical Chairs. I modified the basic rules of the original to introduce notions of competitiveness and chance into a game that is, at its core, about managing scarcity.
