Activist Big GameJune 20, 2007
by Onder Skall
The good folks over at Virtual Cultures are running a cool game in Atlanta:
June 27-July 1. Players venture forth do engage in activist quests throughout the city. Quests range from going on a site recon with homeless activists The Made Housers, exploring Atlanta in a wheelchair and reporting barriers to access, group tree hugs, wildflower seed bombs thrown into empty lots, serving as a guerilla crossing guard, collecting stories about Atlanta’s activist history, and a slew of others.
They’re looking for both participants and people to help run the game, but even if you’re not in the area and just curious about how they’re doing this swing by the ActionQuest website. I’d love to hear about people picking up on these ideas and running their own games in their own cities. Drop me a line if you do!
