On 4-6 September, we ran Now Play This, a weekend of games at Somerset House in London with George Buckenham and Jo Summers.
Over the course of three days we involved more than 70 speakers, game designers, writers and performers, and drew an audience of over a thousand players.
Twenty-five games ran throughout the weekend, including new commissions from Klondike, Ra’eesah Hassan, and Loren Schmidt and Katie Rose Pipkin. Alongside these we showed a rotating selection of upcoming games, and a schedule of special events: talks on Friday, games for big groups on Saturday and workshops on Sunday.
As part of the event we also produced a zine, “Games for an Uncertain World”, distributed to players across the weekend.
