Sandpit have lots of things going on this summer with LIFT and fierce over June and July.
Me and Nichol sent out a game called ‘Tourists’
check the blurb – Tourist is a game in which everyone is lost. Everyone is foreign. Everyone is a local. Everyone is a monument, from the Coliseum to Eiffel Tower and so on. The aim of the game is to have your dream holiday. This game entails deception and quick thinking.
Players will feel lost, intimidated and new to a familiar place. They have to negotiate a foreign place trying to find a famous monument; they will have to speak to the natives in their language. Tasks include getting somebody to draw you directions, getting your photo taken by somebody else, taking a photo of somebody taking a photo, ask for directions to a place that does not exist…
