Announcing Play/Off, NYC’s first league of digital play

EDIT: Keep an eye out for Play/Off in 2016. We have decided to postpone it until then in order to do the best job possible on this event series.

Games have been inherently social for most of our history, from basketball to chess. Why should videogames be any different? In our new event series, brought to you by Grind coworking spaces and arts and culture publication Kill Screen, we want to bring people together to play face-to-face in New York City’s first league of digital play.

Over the course of six events, teams will face off in games plucked from the weirdest, wildest corners of the gaming world, playing against each other for glory, prizes and a good time. No experience or skill is necessary; all that’s required is a game face. Teams should focus efforts on creating a co-ed, diverse group of players, but it’s fine if you don’t have a group of friends to compete with; you’ll be matched with a team of other players.

Our first event will be held at Grind Broadway, on September 30th from 6:30 to 9:00. Keep your night free afterwards, though–in the interest of friendly competition, we’ll be heading to a nearby bar to drink to victory and failure together. 

Registration for the Fall Season will be $60 for all six events, but walk-ins are welcome at $15 per event. If all this sounds like a good time, click the button to register below!
