WORLD'S FIRST AND BIGGEST PHOTOGRAPHY GAME

2nd October 2014

Creative Hut Institute of Photography, announces “Fos Paixete”, the Photography Game to be launched on 2nd October 2014.

“Fos Paixete”, the first and biggest Photography Game is first of its kind and is developed for the awareness of photography field in Game format. It is created by a group of 14 members that includes the students and faculties of the institute. The size of the game measures 17.75 feet in length and 14 feet in breadth. “Fos Paixete” refers to a Photographic Board Game; basically an informative as well fun game, designed for a wide genre of people, including students, teenagers and even adults, especially those who are genuinely interested in photography.

Unlike any other game, this game has two motives. First reason behind this game is to bring the awareness of photography and to promote it into this new generation. It will bring the awareness and knowledge of photography to any one even to a new comer in the field of photography. We often find that either individually or sometimes in groups, the Kids and even adults involved in playing video games, mobile games and computer games. The number of such games and the users are increasing rapidly. These makes the habit of sharing, togetherness, activeness reduced in this new generation. Our second motive comes here, that is to prepare a game where they cultivate those habits in themselves and actively play together using their skills, intelligence and knowledge. A thought to make education or learning in the most easiest, simplest and interesting form led us to design and attempt for this photography game.

Photography game “Fos Paixete” an element of information and logic, is easy to access and informative. It is the joint effort of these 14 members who researched on the concept for more than two months at Creative Hut Institute of Photography. The name of the game “Fos Paixete” means “Light Play” which derives from the words in Greek language, “Fos” and “Paixete” that means “Light” and “Play”, respectively. That is all the game about, to light ones knowledge about Photography through game.

In this game a group of maximum five players can play together indoor as well as outdoor. Four of them are the players who are in the race to win while the fifth player is the controller. In the board of “Fos Paixete”, there are several boxes from the start to the end of the game. The players move their standees through these boxes as per their shuffled dice numbers. Boxes indicate different information according to which the game continues. The instructions and rules on how to play the game are given along with the game. The fifth player who is a controller as well as a banker has complete control on the game. The team of this research and concept of the first and biggest photography game is certain that it is first of its kind and would definitely increase the understanding of photography among the people whether it’s a child or any adult.

This game inhered in a rectangular playing board, features few world famous photographers, various cameras, different lenses and a dice, imprinted with 1 to 6 arithmetic numbers. Each player shuffles the dice by turn. The game begins when a player shuffles a dice and achieves the number 1. The game continues according the numbers in the shuffled dice and as per the instructions indicated in each box and card. The game is entangled by few restrictions, like, if a player goes bankrupt in the mid of the play, then he/ she is immediately dismissed/ disqualified from the game but can continue if he / she has enough equipments or materials. The objective of the game is that a player has to accrue sufficient cash to buy the most expensive camera at the end worth Rupees two lakh. One of the key strategies is to complete the game before the other players through a sequential manner, without being terminated from the game and thus the 1st player to acquire this is declared the winner.

Researching on various aspects of photography, the team members of this game believe that they had a team of talented, determined and hard working members which was driven by their ever encouraging guru Abin Alex. One of the defining features of the 17.75 x 14 feet, first and biggest photography Game is its genuine aim to use complete photography terms using traditional board game method such as using rolling dices, moving standees or figures, playing informative cards, playing money and playing it wisely. The smaller size of this game is equally available in the institute and is ready to be used.

Our mission to change the world of photography has got new heights through this unique game called Fos Paixete. Everyone thinks about the clicks and f-stop numbers in camera but here one thinks of shuffle and dice numbers. Thus, “Fos Paixete” is an interesting informative strategic game that can be used as a learning tool for educating students in various photographic schools and institutes, as well as for non-photographic students.  The grand opening and launch of this photography game will be held on 2nd October at Creative Hut Institute of Photography, Mattakkara Kerala.
