Things We Like: A Conference/Festival That Uses The City As A Game Board.

Come out and play!

I regularly use games to accelerate learning, team building, design insights and establish an attitude of relentlessly playful testing, experimentation and failure in a learning or design process. As you can see from the recent posts by two of our #teendesignheroes,  Jeisson and Diana, the transformative power of including games in a design or learning process are undeniable.

It’s therefore probably not surprising that our favorite conference for the past four years has been Come Out And Play!. This year the organizers have expanded the conference into a multi-week festival and there are only two weekends left during which you, and hundreds of other people can use New York City as a massive game board.

I wish I could make it to the scratch and sniff treasure hunt/tag, Hounded but I couldn’t be more excited about Shadowplay tonight………hope to see you there.
