Pac-Manhattan is a large-scale urban game that utilizes the New York City grid to recreate the 1980'* video game sensation Pac-Man. This analog version of Pac-man is being developed in NYU'* Interactive Telecommunications graduate program, in order to explore what happens when games are removed from their "little world" of tabletops, televisions and computers and placed in the larger "real world" of street corners, and cities.

A player dressed as Pac-man will run around the Washington square park area of Manhattan while attempting to collect all of the virtual "dots" that run the length of the streets. Four players dressed as the ghosts Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde will attempt to catch Pac-man before all of the dots are collected.

Once again I'm encouraged by the fact that there are people out there making even less practical use of their time than I am...although at least they made the news

It does sound like fun. You are only as old as you feel.
