Awake your inner child, because Fed Square is hosting three days for kids, adults and – gulp – kidults. Expect bouts of search and catch, giant board games, cops and robbers and more, from local and international games designers. Kids and adults are equally welcome. Who needs monkey bars when Fed Square is offering up this playground for theatre, art and social gaming?

Highlights include:

Treasure hunts with a twist such as Phone Booth, 7:Candles and Sacred Cow, Holy Udder.

Combat games Attack the Block and the western shootout, Nashville mountain climbing challenge Mont Trottoir.

Old favourites like snakes and ladders transformed into the life-size Sneaks and Bladders and cops and robbers in The Gobstopper Job.
