The winner would never say: "It's just a game". Gloria Copeland
Sometimes on the streets you can see the strange people - they crawl on all fours, walking around with their oars, pestering people with incredible questions. What happens to them? Why are they so wonderfully behave?
Most likely, these strange people - members of city street games. Sure, you've already heard half an ear on the "Watch" or «Encounter». Most of these games are somewhat similar to the Soviet game Zarnitsa, they are now very much. Let's try to clarify the situation and find out what kind of game?
"Patrol" The point of the game is to get ten levels, guess a riddle, puzzle, and find the encrypted codes. Teams consist of staff and several crew members. Must be present in the team flashlights, laptop, mobile phones and the Internet. The headquarters is connected through the site with the organizers, giving their answers, looking for crews. From ten in the evening Saturday and Sunday morning to seven members compete, trying to solve the task. Winning is a faster team.
In \"Patrol\" have their own dictionaries: one drafted players, the other - the organizers. From the dictionary, compiled by the participants:
"Aboriginal - a typical representative of the local flora, area. Uncle - the people in green vests, who earn by stopping cars with his stick. "... Lost kitten, kitty, kitty ..." - the standard answer to the question "What is going on here?" Or "What are you looking for?" Invalid question - the universal excuse of organizers. "
Sentinel dictionary, created by the organizers of the project, includes terms and definitions used in the game. However, memorize them before the game there is no need, since during the game by themselves, will be remembered.
Also in the "Patrol" There are a set of rules, which includes a lot of paragraphs and subparagraphs. Rules relating to registration, the organization of games, penalties, bonuses, etc.
"Photohunt" It is necessary to capture interesting moments of life on a strictly defined topic. For example, shoot man on a sledge with a scarf and a hat with gloves, when in the yard in the middle of summer. In the team can participate from 2 to 5 people. On the assignment is given approximately 6 hours. For each image calculated scores, winners receive prizes.
There is also Game "Fight", "Photoextreme", "wet war", "Caching", "Challenge", etc. The number of these games increases almost from day to day, therefore, there is a demand for them.
Why do young people and adults every Saturday, Sunday or any other day participate in competitions, whether for the sake of winning? Or is it a unique way of escape from reality? Maybe it's the same substitution of reality, like computer games? Whether the games are useful or harmful? Interesting? It is fashionable? These issues become increasingly important, because these games are, of course, the social character, and their spread will inevitably increase.
