We thought we would look at an old game and make it that bit tougher. Fancy an egg and spoon race but with space hoppers thrown into the mix?

Your chance to relive those sports day challenges.

In the lead up to this years playARK games festival we will be putting on a game on Saturday 5 May, 3-5pm - Cardiff (Secret location - you will be told nearer the time where to meet and where you will finish)

Eye spy with my little eye something beginning with.........

Information has been uncovered by a mole agent that threatens the whole of the country’s National Security. The agent left a final transmission giving a date 05/05/12 and referencing an Event. No other information is available at this time. The agent’s current status is missing in action. You as agents are being recruited and deployed to create a united undercover front to succeed in what will be known as operation CYCLOPS.

It's over a week ago I had just managed to clear up one room of the house. With Allie frantically collecting all the other stuff from all the volunteers and supporters that without them the talks, the games and everwake really could not have been made possible. Firstly a quick comment. If someone comes up to you and says they are really interested in setting up a two day festival with talks and games. I would advise you to run. Run away as far as you can. I would also say perhaps de-friend them from facebook :-)
