This is a photo I did not take of my lunch with Evan, last week. I was in a rush to get to the North side from downtown (we met up at Burger Bar), and time got the better of me. Interestingly enough, though we’ve “known” one another for many years through conversations via email… we’ve never really met and…
I found out via Facebook about a hilarious and fun looking new game called Quiplash. A game by Jackbox Games (the folks who created “You Don’t Know Jack”), it allows up to eight participants to log in with their mobile devices and play simultaneously.
Photos are courtesy of Ray Whitehouse, who was doing a ton of documenting throughout the event. He was there at the start, taking profile shots of all the participants near the registration area (that would be the photo on the left). I also ran into him shortly after I failed to elude capture, near Checkpoint 2 outside Holstein Park. I’m holding in my hands the special award that Evan gave me, for effort.
I walked up near the starting area to snap a few pics. This is the registration area, where you sign your name, get your map, and get your red and blue ribbons. The blue ribbon goes immediately around your arm, to signal that you’re a runner. Throughout the game, as you’re trying to get to each checkpoint on your map, you’ll be trying to avoid people with red armbands (chasers). If you’re caught, you give your blue arm band to the person who caught you, put on your red arm band… and become a chaser yourself.
