World Data Cup

The "World Data Cup" is a game-y visualization to be played using data, information and news about the 32 countries in the tournament. It is played through penalty kicks and the user can choose among 14 balls and have 5 kicks per each match. Each ball represents data about specific fields, such as innovation, economy, and human rights. The objective is to choose the field in which the chosen country would be stronger (or weaker) than the opponent. Winning or losing depends on the ability of selecting the balls.
