Alongside the performances, Coney have created three pop-up games which you can play around the museum from 6pm – 9.30pm:

The Stake
Location
: Wonder Bay, Hinze Hall
Take a journey away from the hustle and in the presence of Luke Jerram’s Earth sculpture. This contemplative game is about what’s at stake for our precious world, now and in the future. Made by Coney, this is a five-minute experience designed for one – just turn up with your smartphone.

Let’s Talk About Climate Change
Location: Café/bar behind the Hinze Hall
Ever killed the mood of a party by broaching the topic of climate change? Overwhelmed by the carbon footprint of your shopping trolley? Flights to family events, weddings and holidays? Coney invite you and your friends to play Let’s Talk About Climate Change. Grab a drink and bring your best tactics.

The Fives
Location:
Café/bar West
In teams, compete against each other to make the best decision for you, your family, your community and your world. You are invited by Coney to play an entertaining decision-making game, with chocolates to be won…

I absolutely loved Let’s Talk About Climate Change, so great because it was such a good way to get people talking about the chaos we have caused and also hear different peoples opinions on it.
