"No Rules: Governors Island Edition", 2008
Performance - Two chairs, small table, and set of rules
Duration varies (Sunday 6/29, Saturday 7/26 at 12:30 PM both days)
Concept: A simple imagination game of offense and defense. This game unveils a series of impending dooms that befall the City of New York, to which a series of bold counter attacks are carried out in the nick of time. It places the heroic Governors Island between beloved New York City and utter destruction.
Participate: "Two players pick either the role of IMPENDING DOOM or GOVERNORS ISLAND.
The IMPENDING DOOM player imagines (and describes aloud) a specific threat to New York City, and the GOVERNORS ISLAND player has one chance to save New York by imagining and describing aloud some defense. Play continues following this attack-and-defend pattern until one player mistakenly repeats themselves (and loses) or both players agree to stop and call the game a draw."
