Item Details

"Find the future: the game is a pioneering, interactive experience created especially for NYPL's centennial by famed game designer Jane McGonigal, with Natron Baxter and Playmatics. Through a once-in-a-lifetime overnight adventure played inside the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building and an ongoing online game, Find the future: the game combines real-world missions with virtual clues and online collaboration--all inspired by 100 works from the amazing collections of The New York Public Library ... Find the future: the game kicked off on May 20, 2011 as part of NYPL's Centennial Festival weekend, with a 'Write all night' event inside the landmark building at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. Players (18 and older) explored the building's 70 miles of stacks, and, using laptops and smartphones, follow[ed] clues to such treasures as the Library's copy of the Declaration of Independence in Thomas Jefferson's hand. After finding each object, each of the 500 players wrote short personal essays inspired by their quest--for example, how would they write the Declaration? Winning the game meant writing a collaborative book based on these personal stories about the future, and this volume will be added to the Library's collections"--New York Public Library Web site, accessed July 11, 2011: http://exhibitions.nypl.org/100/digital_fun/play_the_game
