NOW Games

is coming to Ann Arbor!

On January 8, 2021, nine teams of twelve will begin the first quest of a new consciousness olympiad called NOW Games.

Consciousness means something different to each of us. This new olympiad is a role-playing game exploring the boundaries of consciousness through the eyes of 9 locals.

These everyday superheroes will lead teams of 11 people to complete quests which provide a framework for the teams to kickstart new progressive projects. Think: civil engagement, eco-conscious business, mindful capitalism, veganism, art, broadcast media, sharing economy, pilot house think tank, political candidate incubator, and all sorts of rebellious, radical experiments of a world focused on exploration and creation.

Ligaments

The olympiad will be live-streamed and professionally filmed, reality-show style. Building a radically new, YES-centered media network is one of the primary goals of NOW Games. So...we need a film crew, and animators, and a social media guru and so much more. If you have skills to help make this a reality, please reach out asap!
