THE GAME

Game design by Zach Gage

BEG BORROW OR STEAL is game in which every guest walks away with a unique work of art. These works will be exhibited during the event, and guests will be assigned a piece at random when they arrive at Recess.

But there is a catch; guests have the ability to “beg, borrow, or steal” in order to safeguard or swap their piece…

  • Guests can buy “steal cards.” Steal cards allow guests to swap work with someone else.
  • Guests can buy “defend cards.” Defend cards protect guests’ work from thieves.
  • If Guest A has more steal cards than Guest B has defend cards, Guest A can demand to swap works.
