PISS CLEAR newspaper offices

PISS CLEAR is Black Rock City’s favorite alternative newspaper. Since 1995, PISS CLEAR has provided an independent voice on the playa, and now has a circulation of 10,000 per issue. We have never received one bit of funding from Burning Man, which affords us the luxury to be free from censorship and to tell it like it is – and to do so in a way that both entertains and informs the citizens of Black Rock City! PISS CLEAR got its unusual name from the Black Rock Desert’s #1 survival tip: “drink enough water so that you piss clear.” Over the years, it has evolved into Burning Man’s snarky reality check, chock full of witty articles, acerbic rants, thoughtful commentaries, and funny lists.

PlayA Game Camp

PlayA Game Camp will be home to an 8’x 8′ Man-opoly board game based on Black Rock City. We will also feature a life-size version of Candyland, where you can be your own gingerbread man. Or you can play our home-made Twista game, sometimes called Left Foot Blue, which puts a twist on a classic party game.

Stop by our camp to see what time the next organized game starts, or just hang out and play some cards, board games, or start a pick up game of Freeze Tag, Red Light/Green Light or Kick the Can. We encourage individuals, pairs, and groups of game-loving folks to come and play with us, and each other. So, ‘Red Rover, Red Rover, send your best playaz over!’

The FUTURE outcome of any game is riddled with the HOPES and FEARS of its playaz, so fear the worst, hope for the best, but have fun while you play the games. Let the games begin!!
