Why 5 and Go ?

We are experiencing a crisis of loneliness and disconnection in the United States and around the world, and young people are some of the hardest hit.

The great news is that by having more positive in-person interactions, we can boost our mental health, our physical health, and strengthen our communities and society…

What is 5 and Go! and how does it work?

5 and Go! gets you out in the real world, interacting with real people through short, fun, playful challenges that will brighten your day and uplift your friends and community.

Does my playing really help other people?

Yes. When you interact with others, they also get the benefits of social interaction, so you’ll be giving their mental and physical health a boost too. Many of our challenges are also designed specifically to enable you to bring joy to the people you interact with, whether they are close friends or complete strangers. It feels awesome to make others happy.

Who will I play with?

You can play the Daily challenges solo or play any partner challenge with a friend.

What kind of challenges will I play? Can I design challenges for my friends?

Daily challenges are played solo and involve short, fun interactions with your friends or community.

Partner challenges are played with friends and can get more creative and silly: build things, find hidden objects and spaces, invent new dance moves, lead a social experiment.

Location challenges are played with friends and are tied to specific locations and landmarks (e.g. a museum) and can only be played when you are physically at that location.

You can also design your own partner challenges for your friends to play. From the More menu, select “Challenges,” then “Designed by You,” then “Design New Challenge.”

What are Groups? Can I play 5 and Go! with my neighborhood, class, workplace, etc ?

Groups are like a private version of 5 and Go! You can start your own or accept an invitation to join an existing group. Each group chooses which challenges to play, can view all the group’s creations in one place, and gets its own private group chat.  Groups can be small for a few friends or large for a student group, a gym, a workplace, a neighborhood, or anywhere else fun interactions are to be had.

You can invite other players individually, or create a group invitation link or QR code that you can share widely.

How do I record and share video of my challenges?

From the More menu, just tap “Start recording” to capture the IRL excitement of playing a 5 and Go! challenge. After you’ve finished recording, go to “Your video library” from the settings menu to share your videos or download them to your phone’s photos.
