Under the foam paving stones, the foam beach
Two related ideas for how to entertain ourselves. To be played in city centers, preferably during marches.
1. Spanish Civil War LARPing
[hopefully no one really wants to play an Alfonsist. So we simply play CNT/FAI and imagine those not in the game to be the nationalists they are. And we will be strict: there is only one Durruti per game, but it rotates. Full dress is required. Breaking character is not allowed. Related games: Novemberrevolution, Paris Commune: The Return, Bologna '77]
2. Nerf Molotovs
[Nerf paving stones also acceptable. A technically legal volley ricochets off the banks, the jails, the stores.]
But like a snowball fight when there is ice at hand, you just never know. You just never know, she said, laughing.
