Come Out & Play Field Day
Governors Island, Manhattan
Come Out & Play Field Day returns to Governors Island for another day of wild new field games. Field Day will feature a range of new games from open field dodgeball battles to small social games to new sports. Some games make use of new technology like smart phones and some rely on old fashioned tech like rubber balls. But each offers new ways to play and have fun. Each year Come Out & Play brings together designers and players for a chance to play a host of new real-world games.
This year, Come Out & Play Field Day will include a mini-festival of games designed specifically for kids and families organized by ESI Design, one of the world’s foremost experience design firms. All of the games will connect together in a single fun story line about Time Travel — complete with official time travel agents, games throughout time, chronological paradoxes, and imminent threats to the space-time continuum! People will be able to play just one or two games as they like, or all of them for an epic Time Travel adventure. Just imagine what it would be like to travel back to the Big Bang . . . 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!
