UPDATE WITH LOCATION!
We will be playing in the grass by the Boston Common Gazeebo. For specific event location click here:
The ancient Greeks banned it, but we’re playing it anyway!
2000 years ago, the ancient Greeks played a game they called simply "The Labyrinth." Until recently, little has been known about the mysterious sport - only that it required the athletes to be blindfolded, and that eventually it was banned from their Olympics games. Now, the rules for the lancient abyrinth have been rediscovered - and for the first time in modern history, the world will learn to play the Labyrinth again.
You don’t need to be an athlete to master this lost sport - it mostly requires trust, courage, and collaboration.
Come learn the sport and participate in a labyrinth race - or just come to watch, as The Lost Sport of Olympia is rediscovered in Boston.
Play the game at 1130am. Come early at 11am if you want to learn the history of the lost sport and pick up super sneaky game strategies!
Specific location is in the BOSTON COMMON BY THE GAZEEBO.
Once you’re initiated into the secrets of the human labyrinth, Team Boston may be virtually racing against other teams who are training in New Zealand, Buenos Aires, San Francisco, Sao Paolo, Zurich, Madrid, London, and more.
