The Land of Parcheesopoly: A Living Life-sized Board Game
Co-create a giant sidewalk chalk board game in the street! Roll dice. Hop, twirl, squawk, recite, wiggle. Make up rules, build it bigger. The game will evolve throughout the night as players add to the board with their own instructions and alter routes and rules of play. Examples might include the basics such as “Go back 2 spaces” or “Roll again” as well as creative action commands like “Make a funny face at someone you don’t know.” “Recite a seven word poem about honey badgers.” “Sing a song you hated as a child.” “Pretend you are wearing a funny hat.” The Land of Parcheesopoly is designed to instigate connection and interaction with friends and strangers through movement, laughter, manipulation and negotiation of rules, cheating when appropriate, and ridiculousness.
