What is Watch The Skies?

Watch The Skies is an immersive and thrilling megagame experience that places participants in the midst of a global crisis following the discovery of extraterrestrial intelligence. The game typically involves a large number of players, each assuming the roles of various global factions such as governments, military agencies, scientists, and media outlets.

The game unfolds in real-time over the course of a day, during which players must collaborate, negotiate, and strategize to address the challenges posed by the alien presence. Diplomacy and communication are key as players navigate the complex web of international relations, forming alliances, negotiating treaties, and managing crises.

As the game progresses, players must also contend with the unpredictable behavior of the aliens, who may have their own agendas and motivations. Players must balance the need to protect their own interests with the imperative of working together to ensure the survival of humanity.

Watch The Skies is known for its dynamic and engaging gameplay, which challenges players to think creatively, adapt to changing circumstances, and make tough decisions under pressure. With its blend of strategy, diplomacy, and role-playing, Watch The Skies offers a truly unforgettable experience for participants of all ages and backgrounds.

Can Parents and Support Workers participate?

While the program is developed as a School Holiday Program, if your child requires a parent/guardian/support worker in order to comfortably participate then that is no issue. The parent/support worker will however be charged an additional fee. This will be in a supportive role, not as a player of the game. 

Does the program provide lunch/catering for particapants?

Unfortunately no! Participating puzzlers are asked to have a packed lunch with them! With enough food and snacks to get them through the day! Water will be provided.

Will you assist my child with needs such as food/medication etc?

No, please only enrol your child if they are capable of managing their own medication/eating needs, plus hygiene. This program is a social workshop and not designed as a child care option. If your child needs extra support, please register as an attending parent/guardian/support worker.

I am an adult without children but want to attend a Megagame!

Check out Sydney Megagamers for events coming soon! Braided Entertainment is also looking to put on events in Newcastle soon!
