[UbiComp] Big Urban Game

Big Urban Game allows you to turn your city in a huge board game. You play with big inflatable game pieces.

The Big Urban Game (B.U.G.) is a five-day city-wide event that transformed the Twin Cities into a 200-square-mile game board. Three B.U.G. teams raced 25-foot-tall Red, Yellow and Blue inflatable game pieces through the streets of Minneapolis and St. Paul each day. As players in the B.U.G., the public chose which routes the pieces raced along, and followed the day's progress on the B.U.G. website. B.U.G. checkpoints were the start for discovery walking tours based on specially commissioned KNOWLEDGE MAPS — nine interpretive maps of the Twin Cities — available now through the Design Institute.
