Watch the Skies Megagame
Saturday, January 13, 9 a.m., Howe Community Park, $45
Who says grownups can’t play pretend? In this “megagame,” you can be an alien with a mysterious interest in the Earth, a government official trying to balance peace and security or a member of the press trying to uncover the real story. This day-long megagame lets participants inhabit roles they never would in the real world, as they work together to solve the challenges of a possible alien invasion. Hosted by West Coast Megagames, each megagame takes on a different theme. An American Revolutions-themed megagame is scheduled for July. Maybe Watch the Skies will make you feel powerful, or maybe you’ll feel like a character in The Twilight Zone. 2201 Cottage Way, www.wcmgames.com.
