Game Description: Shake your virtual hips to the ridiculously fun arcade action of Conga Master as everyone fights to make the longest conga line possible. No rhythm required – anyone can conga! Playing Conga Master couldn’t be easier: steer your dancer across the floor, adding people to your line as you go.
