GR2’s “Adventures of Pip” Game Night

GR2 Giant Robot is having another Game Night tonight, and we really wish we were there. This game night will feature “Adventures of Pip,” a game created by Tic Toc Games. Tic Toc Games relaunched their Kickstarter campaign back in August and so far they look like they may make their goal.

Come to GR2 to play the demo yourself on September 6, 2014, from 7 to 10PM. If you can’t make it to Game Night (like us-UGH!), you can check out their Kickstarter by clicking here.

FriendWithYou’s “Light Cave” at The Standard High Line

This Monday in New York City, FriendWithYou will be launching a new art light installation that we think will add additional fun. Light Cave is the largest inflatable installation created by FriendsWithYou, and was commissioned by the Art Production Fund and The Standard Hotel and will be up for September.

This 55ft x 25ft x 14ft inflatable is a living breathing monument, pulsating with energy and light, creating a sensory rich experience that unifies viewers under its canopy. The sculpture prompts viewers to explore the vibrantly colored cave, encouraging communal and personal experience.

It sort of looks like an elephant doesn’t it? You can experience Light Cave at The Standard High Line Plaza, located at 848 Washington at 13th Street right in Manhattan.
