The New Games movement of the 1960s and 1970s in the USA was about “taking back” sports from professionals and encouraging everyone to play.
They encouraged people to change their games and make up new ones, anything to keep the fun alive. Along the way, they invented a new philosophy around play and community that is valuable for anyone interested in making games or finding new ones to explore.
In this talk, Jesse will give a history of New Games movement, discuss Bernie De Koven’s excellent book “The Well-Played Game”, and then lead us through a bunch of these old new games.
