Obscure Games brings people together through play. We find, invent, and play strange, new, and obscure sports and games, favoring player interaction over competition. We play our games, we play other people’s games, we play games pulled from antiquity, change rules as we see fit, and usually forget to keep score.
Every week, we invent and play new games at our free game sessions. You can find rules for lots of the games we play on Ludocity, a great website to which you (yes you) can add your own games. Games are geared toward men and women 18 and older. Athleticism helps, but there are no fitness standards. There’s no league to join, and it’s totally free.
Obscure Games also does special events, like a Human Curling tournament or 1930′s Period-Clothing Stickball. You can get updates about upcoming events by becoming fans of us on Facebook, following us on Twitter, or signing up for our email list. And if you’ve got a favorite game, send us an email, tell us about it, and we’ll try it out!
