Watch the Skies is the world’s most popular Megagame. What is a Megagame? It’s an exciting new type of gaming experience, with dozens of players all involved in one simultaenous game. With board game elements, the focus is on player interaction, communication, and deception.

Players are seperated into small teams, each representing a nation. Each team member plays a role – Head of State, Chief Scientist, UN Ambassador, or Military Chief – and all must work together to succeed in the game.

A few other players will be taken aside to represent a mysterious alien race, making contact with Earth for the first time. How each nation chooses to respond to the existance of aliens – and how the aliens respond in turn – will determine the future of humanity.

The game runs from 9am to 5pm. Players should be present for the entire event. Lunch, coffee, and snacks will be provided.

Tickets are $45. You are encouranged to sign up with teammates in mind; simply let us know so we can put you together!
