Switching the Current goes to Uddevalla November 16

Our biggest event yet will take place in Uddevalla, November 16. 80-90 players will take on the challenge of navigating a region towards a safe and just future amidst a host of crises awaiting them along the way. Which choices will they make? We are very much looking forward to the next iteration of the game, having made several adjustments from last iteration and learning about what makes a valuable learning experience. If anyone would like to learn about the event or join as observers: please contact us (see our LiU page for contact info).

Watch the Skies Jan 20 2024

Information below also on Facebook

Welcome to the worst nightmare of the governments of Earth: extraterrestrial Aliens roam outside of Area 51. What do they want? And whatever they say they want, can they be trusted not to conquer Earth instead?

East Sweden Megagames runs of Jim Wallman’s famous megagame Watch the Skies in Linköping, Sweden in January 2024. Join 40 other players in a whole-day game of diplomacy and alien invasion: gather three friends and sign up to play one of the Human teams – or would you rather be on the Press or even Alien teams?

Does it cost anything to play? The venue is not set at the moment, so we currently don’t know – should there be cost for the venue, we will charge each player a small fee (max. SEK 300) at registration to cover it.

Spelet om konsumtionen

Från hösten 2022 och två år framåt kommer vi att försöka kommunicera forskningen i projektet MISTRA Sustainable Consumption genom användningen av Megagames. Detta finansieras av Formas som ett forskningskommunikationsprojekt vi kallar “Spelet om konsumtionen”, eller “Changing the game of consumption”. Syftet är att mån nya grupper och kommunicera på ett engagerande sätt kring avgörande val vi behöver göra kopplat till vår konsumtion och livsstil i omställningen till ett hållbart samhälle. På den här webbplatsen kommer vi att rapportera löpande om de aktiviteter vi ägnar oss åt, inklusive speldesign och speltester.
