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.

  • Date:14 Jul 2012
  • Location: Governors Island
  • Address: Governors Island, New York, NY
  • Time: 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
  • 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?
