Inconspicuous Games plays secret, walking field-games (like capture-the-flag) near popular public landmarks – and only the players know what’s happening! The rules are largely the same as the games we played and loved as kids with one MAJOR difference: be inconspicuous! No running, no lunging, no dodging. You must walk at all times. Strategy & teamwork win, not strength & speed. The only thing that identifies a player is a small custom “Inconspicuous Games” blue or red lapel pin which each player keeps after the game. This experience forces the most competitive players to set aside an individual gain for the win of the team!

    Inconspicuous Games has created a truly engaging and unique experience. The perfect way to connect and play in a way that's quintessentially New York! It was great to see a different side of our coworkers, quiet folks turned out to be master strategists and more extroverted teammates blended into the woodwork and got sneaky.

    Inconspicuous games is the quirkiest, funnest thing you didn’t know you were missing. Ever short for ideas on the weekend, and just plain tired of brunches and bars but not quite feeling ‘old’ enough for museums? Play capture the flag in public, because why the hell not? I’m just mad because I’m forever in search of my inner child and hadn’t ever thought of this. It’s brilliant.

    Inconspicuous games is a heart pounding glimmer of play that brings life to the extraordinary structures we pass through every day with a blind eye.

    Quite possibly the most fun and memorable outing we’ve had to connect our employees and build our team dynamics.
