Command armies, write laws and employ spies to forever change the course of history!
The World Turned Upside Down is a new megagame about the American Revolution. Players will become part of the British command or a leader in one of the thirteen Colonies of America. Win the hearts and minds of the people to your cause - sway opinion (and funds) to your side in Congress, defend your home as a Commander in the Continental Army, or dabble in a little espionage.
What is a megagame?
Megagames are large-scale gaming events full of player interaction. More than 50 players will play out an in-depth, immersive game in an five-hour event. Each person will take on an individual role crucial to the success of their team. Every decision matters.
Megagames are all about player empowerment. Negotiation, spontaneity and creative solutions are part of what make megagames exciting. Game Masters, called Control, will be on hand to help with rules and structure as well as to also allow you to stretch the boundaries of possibility, creating new scenarios and options that will affect the game as a whole.
Is there an age limit to enter the megagame?
Yes, all participants must be 18+ to participate unless accompanied by an adult.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the megagame?
The Long Island Railroad's Smithtown station is a short drive away and we would be happy to pick you up. Buses also run and drop off within a short walking distance. There is plenty of parking at the event location.
Will there be food or drink available for purchase?
Yes, we will have light snacks and beverages for purchase. Locally there are quick service restaurants so you can eat before/after the megagame.
Feel free to bring any food or non-alcholic beverages to the event.
What can/can't I bring to the megagame?
We encourage all players to immerse themselves in their roles by way of costume and accessories.
Weapons, no matter how fake looking, will not be permitted.
Can I be on the same team as my buddies?
Sure you can! Gather your crew and agree on a team name. When each person buys their ticket, be sure they add the team name they want to be a part of and we'll make sure you're all on the same side. You can also buy all team player tickets in one purchase and we'll make sure all ticket holders get placed together.
In The World Turned Upside Down team sizes are variable. Each Colony will have a unique size based on their historical impact. Simply let us know how many people you're planning to have on your team and we'll make sure your team is kept together either as one Colony or adjacent Colonies depending on your team's size.
Do you have to be on a team to play?
Of course not! There are plenty of roles that need to be filled and megagamers are universally very nice people.
