mermaid) Ruby Dine is at Jubilee library,

and Towner host a major exhibition of early

Global Game Jam, and just some of what’s

on, art wise, this month.

The way we play.

57-61. Adam Bronkhorst photographs some

hardcore boardgamers at the Dice Saloon.


63-67. A brilliant brunch at 640 East;

Nutritious Fish (who’ll deliver the catch

taster of this month’s food news.




69-79. We meet the founder of Gamely

Games; round up Brighton’s growing list of

Escape Rooms; hear trade secrets from the

voice actor Elsie Lovelock; and Joe Fuller

revisits the ‘cosily catastrophic’ virtual

world of Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture.

Plus, we find out about the company

mapping the city with Minecraft; an

animation school for kids; and hear from

the University of Sussex Senior Lecturer

who has done the maths on dating apps.
