In a week - from 9 to 11 July - the 2010 Hide&Seek Weekender will be taking place at the National Theatre (we're based mostly in the Olivier foyer). Yes, that's the actual National Theatre, the one on the South Bank, that is a theatre, and is national.
You should come! And tell other people to come! For the following reasons:
1. It will be pretty brilliant!
2. It's free
3. No, really, it will be amazing. We have 35 games, everything from "sit around a table arguing" to "run around the South Bank frantically and hide from enemies". Iphone games, cutting-out-pieces-of-paper games, flag design games, games with blindfolds, games with a band playing a waltz, games from theatre companies and game designers and choreographers and musicians and journalists and, oh, pretty much everything really. Mostly for adults, but some stuff kids and families can do.
4. And imagine how sad all the designers would be if there was nobody to play the games - their little faces! Their tear-filled eyes as they blink bravely!
(If you're around on the Friday night and up for being incredibly useful, as well as having fun, kevandotorg and I are running a game called Visible Cities on the Friday night, about travelling between different versions of London - say, underwater London, desert London. We need people to man checkpoints for travelling between Londons and/or to chase and terrify the innocent wide-eyed players, so if you're up for either of those, let me know. I can pay you back with stupid amounts of cake - comment or email to email@example.com.)
There is a Facebook event here! The schedule, in case you've lost the link from the top of the page, is here!
My goodness 35 games is a lot, though. If you talk to me any time between now and the 11th, don't expect me to make too much sense...
