Saturday 8 May 2004This is 19 years old. Be careful.

With both my New York City upbringing and my early-80s video game experience, how could I not mention PacManhattan? It’s Pac-Man, but played by real people on the streets of New York. The five players (the Pac-Man and four ghosts) stay in contact with five handlers via cell phones, updating their position as they chase each other around the streets.

It’s similar to the medieval game of human chess, but updated to a modern game with modern technology.

For those of you New Yorkers obsessively reading this blog in real-time, there’s a game starting today at noon.
