I am trying to design a project for young children (a toy if you will) and need some advice. The general idea is

- If an impact is recognised it will make a sound (I was thinking one of theese:https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10966
- You can throw it hard, but too hard and it will make the noise and the point will go to the other person
