William Penn designed the city’s squares for flashlight tag. Didn’t you know? Of course in those days, Penn chased surveyor Thomas Holme around with a candle, but you get the idea.
Adventure group Get Out Philly is reigniting its flashlight tag game in Washington Square Park. The December event proved a bit chilly, so the next game is set for April, when the temp could be 40 or 80, but the game is still frustrating.
All you need is a light and a couple bucks to keep the group funded. A plus but not required: Mission Impossible-like maneuvering skills.
