It's All Fun and Games Until...

In-person session | Engage, Play

January 12, 2023 | 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM

The phrase “work hard, play hard” is more than a derivative of a seminal quote from the 1800s or famous hip-hop song. Its essence informs the travails and rewards of how we live our life.

Unlike work, play has no age limit nor does it require an IRS designation. Play can be as simple or as complex as we demand. Play can be collaborative or competitive depending on the activity. And at its best, play be bring about immense joy for all participants. With play, there is a meritocracy at-hand compared to work. Rules define our actions, strategy informs our decisions, and skill determines outcomes, which means there’s little room for unconscious biases or intentional deleterious behaviors in a truly zero-sum consequence.

At our designated Gaming Stations are a variety of activities based in Competition, Chance, Simulation, and Vertigo classifications. Leave work at the door, put your temperament to the test, and have a joyous time as play is intended be!
