NewMindSpace is a collection of live-action urban street games that take place in major metropolitan areas such as NYC and Toronto. Another game moves the classic game, “Capture the Flag” into the urban grittiness of Brooklyn where players “outwit opponents, hiding around warehouse corners before you find their flag, outmaneuver their flag keepers and dash home for a point in the pulse-quickening game of urban capture.” One game that resembles “Flash Mobbing” is BlowBubbles where mobs of people attempt to completely cover a public landmark with clouds of bubbles.“Manhunt” is like tag on crack, where mobs of people search out the runners in a dense urban space. Coming soon to a street corner near you!
One thought on “Urban Games in your Neighborhood”
be sure to check out TechWalk, a large-scale urban game we just played last weekend in Birmingham. For a blow-by-blow record of the game and the fun photographs taken as part of the performance component, visit UrbanOthello.com and the photo scrapbook on FLICKR.
