Lower East Side Urban Gaming

Is it chaos, the future of fun, or a new form of social relations? You decide tomorrow.
The third Come Out & Play Festival will shake Manhattan June 6th-8th. Bystanders be warned! There might be misblown kisses from players' lips who have received a text message from the game master and missed their target or other quirky anomalies.
This year, the Festival unrolls twenty-four games throughout three days in the Lowest East Side. Highlights include family games such as competitive picnicking in Tompkins Square Park, an activists’ race through the history of riots and protests in NYC, and hunting games where you don’t know strangers from your allies.
Tell us your story from the festival or return here to hear mine.
