Details

We are having a special last-minute Meetup to help try out a great new Speculative project, Spoke, a science fiction storytelling game.

It's creator, Evan, will be visiting for London for a couple of days next week, and is excited to try it out with Speculative Futures NYC!

Spoke is a board game for understanding complex futures. It can be played by individuals or mixed groups. Players collaboratively conjure up future narratives using prompts from story element cards and the board. The cards and board form a distributed science fiction world that players can inhabit and shape to fit their own imaginations. Story elements are based on diverse characters, current research topics and events around the rise of automated manufacturing, social media, machine learning and AI.

Spoke is designed for fun, futurists, scenario planners, educators and anyone else exploring the uncertain world of the nearly possible.

As always, PLEASE ONLY REGISTER IF YOU ARE 100% GOING TO ATTEND and cancel your reservation if you can't make it, so others can join. This will be a LIMITED ATTENDANCE event so we can keep the game manageable, so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE manage your RSVP!

We also ask that you bring a small donation to help cover food & drinks for the event (Doc is broke). :D
