    Bed-IN : Revolutionary Games asks the question "Who are you in Bed with"

     
    We will have a Bed set up in Washington Square park that we will be doing the bed-in from.

    Revgames is a way for people to combine revolution and game play to break down barriers that normally exist around fear of speaking out. Revgames is about standing up against the larger corporations, local government and politicians in a none threating and non-violent way. Revgames looks to engage people to share, play and express themselves In fun and creative ways, shareing these games with others and building on games to push boundaries. This is the launch of our newest game, "bed-in" play inside or outside, set up a bed stage and create performances and raise questions.
