The Average Gamer

RL Games This Weekend

From Friday to Sunday, London’s Southbank will be transformed into a giant playground by Hide and Seek, a games studio working to invent new kinds of play.

Here’s a basic summary of the plans, shamelessly lifted from the official site:

  • Friday 6pm till 10pm: round-the-table games, spectator-friendly games, and one great big hundred-player chasing-across-the-Southbank game.
  • Saturday 12 noon till 6pm: with sonar goggles, noise, blindfolds, musicians, adventures, puzzles, electronic devices, new sports, and loads more.
  • Saturday 8:30pm till late: it’s party time at the ICA, with Lost & Found and Stoke Newington International Airport – pick up tickets in advance for £6, or £8 on the door.
  • Sunday 12 noon till 5:30: and on Sunday there’s still more games, including a link-up with players in Delhi, an impossibly large game of Pass the Parcel, jumping around on pavement stones, strategy, silliness and a really lovely last day of the Weekender.

Lots more details and a progamme .pdf available on the Hide and Seek Weekender 2010 site. You need to book for some games in advance so please have a look beforehand.

I’ll be there on Saturday and I’m very tempted by giant pass-the-parcel on Sunday. Follow me on Twitter and drop me a message if you’re there!
