(DON'T TRY HOLDING A MAGNET TO YOU'RE TV OR COMPUTER SCREEN TO TEST THIS. IT WILL LEAVE YOUR SCREEN WITH A PERMANENT CHANGE IN COLORS AND HUES). Put forty magnets on an old tv turned upright to make some kind of boardgame. Something like chess or checkers I guess. But due to the action of the joining and flipping magnets, some kind of new rules would have to be made. The image on the old (but still working) junk tv would appear distorted and twisted due to the presents of the magnets. These changing colors and hues might be incorporated into the rules somehow. I'm thinking white noise from a non-signal channel would be best to keep the rules constant. Also a pane of clear plastic should be put over the glass picture tube so the flipping and joining magnets don't chip or break the glass.

       Tried this on an old TV. All I got were shades of grey. Not very exciting. I'm bored. Think I'll go back to cat waxing...
