Come Out & Play 2010 in Brooklyn

Stop the Mad Bomber in this live-action version of the Atari classic!

Start Time: Friday June 4 at the Opening Party
Location: Brooklyn Lyceum
# of players: 1 player at a time
Duration: 5 minutes per game

In each round, the Mad Bomber will run back and forth across the balcony dropping bombs (that coincidentally resemble black balloons). Your job is to catch each one in your rolling bucket of water, extinguishing the fuse and saving the day. Each round increases the number and speed of dropped bombs, and you have only three lives to claim the high score. There is also one slight catch - for each life lost, the bucket gets smaller and more difficult to maneuver. Do you have what it takes to foil the Mad Bomber and join the exclusive, elite Bucket Brigade?
