Remembering NYC in the palette of world games

On 6/8/2002, Streetplay teamed up with the American Museum of Natural History to present the game of skully during its annual "Identification Day" program.

The skully exhibition was held in the Calder Lab (on the second floor of the museum) between 1:30 and 2:45 p.m. We put a skully board on the floor of the lab and demonstrated the game to any and all comers. Astrophysicist, planetarium director, and Bronx native Neil de Grasse Tyson was unable to deliver a lecture on the relation of skully to quantum mechanics.

More evidence of the fun we had can be seen in the pictures below. Can Streetplay help you with your school (or other) event? Please contact us and we'll figure it out.
