Phish’s Curveball Announces Lineup of Fan Games

Please share:

Phish’s Curveball festival is coming to Watkins Glen, NY, next weekend and the event’s organizers have just revealed a number of various games and competitions that will be held throughout the weekend which include Phish trivia, a scavenger hunt, whiffle ball, a 5K run, Cornhole, free postcards and more.

Inspired by the reception of the games at 2015’s Magnaball, Curveball will feature Subtle Sounds; Survey Says; The Quest; Categories and Picture This.

Below are the descriptions of the games that will be featured at Curveball

Announcing THE LOOP
SUBTLE SOUNDS: On Saturday, fans battle it out identifying Phish songs just by a few notes. Contestant registration begins at 10 am at The Loop registration tent. Spots are limited for this game of ultimate bragging rights.

SURVEY SAYS: A high-energy spoof on the classic TV game. Contestants can sign up to play on stage in 4-person teams to answer Phish-related survey questions asked of 1000+ loyal Phish fans. This highly competitive game show is great fun for contestants and audience alike (two teams of four players each round). Registration begins ½ hour prior to each show.

THE QUEST: A fast-paced adult scavenger hunt utilizing up to 10 teams of 6-8 Phish fans each, who work closely together to earn points performing small stunts or showing a particular item without leaving the immediate area. Be sure to eat your Wheaties before signing up for this one!

CATEGORIES: This game forces you to be spontaneous and use your best improvisation skills as audience members compete and shout out split-second responses to Phish related topics.

PICTURE THIS: Who thinks they know Phish poster art best? Individuals will compete against each other in a fast-paced fun, ringing in to correctly identify slivers of your favorite Phish images.
