Play across the generations . . . and across time!

  • Location: Governors Island - Meet at COaP HQ on the Parade Grounds
  • Address: Governors Island, New York, NY
  • Time: 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
  • 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.

    Sound Play for the Adventurous

    14 Jul 2012 - 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM
    Governors Island

    Play sports like you’ve never done before - using your ears instead of your eyes! We’ve taken our love for tech and games and created sporting equipment that allows you to hear and feel the game space rather than see it. Navigate though the field, other players, and around the equipment using FiiWA’s sound and vibrotactile feedback. Can you and your partner manage to create innovative ways to communicate in order to cross the field, pass the ball, and score more goals than the opposing team with FiiWA? How are your skills when it comes to solo play? Try out your hand/ear coordination with a game of FiiWA Tetherball. . . more info

    The Great Cupcake Wars

    The Great Cupcake Wars

    Fight to win back your kingdom and cupcakes in an epic battle of wits, strategy, and fun.

    14 Jul 2012 - 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
    Governors Island

    The battle is on! The kingdom's of Red and Blue have been annoying each other for years - and they've just declared war! The reason? I heard that a King of Red crashed the King of Blue's birthday party and stole his birthday cupcake! This means war! At the beginning of the game, players are dealt cards with numbers on them. Based on the card's color, red or blue, players are split into kingdoms. Some cards even give players special powers! Then, players must walk or jog to tag their opponents! Once tagged, on the count of three they show their cards, the higher numbered card wins the battle! Unless, of course, one of those players is a bomb! Do you have what it takes to defeat the opponent...and get back your king's cupcake? Time Travel Period: Middle Ages . . more info
