To play and have fun is its own reward. Play and fun are naturally attractive, and when embraced in a group setting, contagious too. Indeed, it’s hard to look cool when everyone else is enjoying a great time.
There is nothing more joyous and refreshing than to observe or be a part of a group at play, in the true sense of the word. Play is not an activity, it’s a state of mind, and when groups truly engage with this state, transformation is possible.
Play is purposeless, voluntary, and people generally want it to last for a long time. People at play often lose a sense of self-consciousness, and time just seems to fly. It’s in these moments of play that people become and behave as they really are, and so authentic interactions are possible and community can be built.
In the world of playmeo, too much play is never enough.
