The Kaki Lima board game was inspired by walking around Penang’s George Town, and is about pedestrians navigating their way through a grid of five-foot ways. Players gain victory points when their pedestrians reach places on their task lists and exploration cards, when they clear blocked paths, and when they meet up with other pedestrians.
Mai Main Kaki Lima! is an invitation to ‘Come Play (in the) Five-foot Way’ during George Town Festival where this cultural-themed board game will be launched through pop-up play-stations over two days at different stretches of five-foot ways. The top scorer of each day will win a copy of Kaki Lima while limited copies will be on sale at a special launch price. Join in the fun and banter about community and accessibility, under the city’s iconic pathway arches where locals and visitors, young and old, have traversed, traded, and communed for centuries.
Co-produced by LUMA and Arts-ED, supported by George Town World Heritage Incorporated, Kaki Lima is designed by Goh Choon Ean, with illustrations by Charis Loke, and art direction by Tan Wah Chew.
