The New Year Games were an amazing afternoon of play in Edinburgh’s Old Town on 1 January 2012. There was scurrying, sneaking, throwing, jumping, sliding, folding, frolicking, paper aeroplanes, giant balls, helter skelter bingo and much more.

Around 10,000 people played, competing for the Red Stag of the Doonies or the Silver Eagle of the Uppies. In the end, the Doonies were triumphant.

The New Year Games were created by Edinburgh’s Hogmanay and Hide&Seek.
