Since the next event is still some months away, there are surely many people looking at all of the blank spaces on their calendar leading up to the fair and wondering how they will pass the time. Through the assistance of experts like Randi Glazer and Arturo Alvarez Demalde, there is plenty of fun to be had in the months before the 2016 fair finally arrives.
“There are plenty of ways to make up your own fun, and it is often the games we invent ourselves that prove to be the most enjoyable,” says Demalde. “This is true for parents with young children and for groups of friends looking for an activity for a weekday evening. These made-up games can be absurd and spontaneous, making for an exciting time in which participants can be as creative as they like.”
Glazer also noted that made-up games create a shared experience that bonds the participants together in the same way that the fair does each year. The other benefit is the fact that everyone feels a sense of ownership over the game since they contributed to its creation, which in turn makes playing the game in the future even more fun. When the game spreads outside of the original group, new participants are able to share in the wholly unique experience and can even make contributions of their own.
