Come Out & Play Festival 2012

29 Apr

Each year the Come Out & Play Festival features the best in experimental new real-world games.

We are excited to announce Come Out & Play 2012. This year Come Out & Play is once again partnering with the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council to bring two days of fun and games to Lower Manhattan.

This year Come Out & Play will feature three main events, each with their own distintive games and flavor. On Friday July 13, Come Out & Play After Dark turns @Seaport and the surrounding streets into a twilight playground.

Then on July 14, Come Out & Play Field Day returns to Governors Island for another day of wild new field games.

Also on July 14, Come Out & Play Family Field Day brings fun and games for the whole family, with a mini-festival of family-friendly games organized by ESI Design, one of the world’s foremost experience design firms.

Governors Island - Meet at COaP HQ on the Parade Grounds

This year Come Out & Play Field Day includes a mini-festival of games for the whole family, organized by ESI Design, one of the world's foremost experience design firms. All of the games will connect together in a single fun storyline about Time Travel — complete with an official Time Travel Agency, games throughout time, chronological paradoxes, and imminent threats to the space-time continuum! You’ll be able to play just one or two games as you like, or all of them for an epic Time Travel adventure. Just imagine what it would be like to travel back to the Dark Ages or ahead to the distant future, when robots rule the world. Anything is possible at the Time Travel Agency, even playing a game with your own great, great, great, great grandparent! Games are suitable for everyone, especially ages 6 to 11. Guardians must co-sign waivers for any player under 18 years of age.   . . more info
