Come Out & Play 2008 in New York City
Come Out & Play 2008 was our best year ever. We were based out of Bluestockings bookstore and activist center from June 6-8. With the power of play, we took over the Lower East Side and beyond during the 3 hottest days of the summer and made the neighborhood come outside to come alive, connect, play and actually delight in the heatwave.
Thousands of players and onlookers participated in 24 incredible games across the city, run by some of the the most incredible and innovative game designers anywhere. The COaP team was astounded and excited by all of the awesome work these designers brought to the 2008 festival.
Bluestockings was the gracious host of the festival. They suffered with a smile through us rampaging around the store and golf balls being putted in through the front door.
We couldn't even consider doing the festival without our army of loyal and dedicated COaP volunteers. Our incredible 2008 volunteers made sure everyone had a good time:
Alfred Omar Almodovar,
Hsin Fang Chang,
Ji Yeon Choi,
Sheryl Santacruz, and
Anytime throughout the festival

The Come Out & Play Festival seeks to provide a forum for new types of public games and play. We want to bring together a public eager to rediscover the world around them through play with designers interested in producing innovative new games and experiences.
Oh yeah, and we want to have city-size fun.
