Now Play ThisThe month-long Game Changers, a celebration of games and play at Somerset House, kicks off with popular gaming weekend Now Play This, presenting over 50 games to get involved with. Coinciding with the London Games Festival, this weekend of play features a post-apocalyptic mini-golf course on the River Terrace, a ping-pong table that creates a work of art as you play, and a physical, team-based challenge to stop the bubonic plague. The main exhibition, Game Changers, taking place throughout April, offers visitors a more in-depth look at the creative process of game design.

 

About Somerset House
