Today’s featured game is the London Poetry Game, and for a very good reason – it’s just gone live and playable! Yes, that’s right – if you’re looking forward to the Weekender and want to play something right now, you can.
A version of the game ran at the very first Hide&Seek Weekender, back in 2007, and Alex has written about it here. The short version, though, is this. The game revolves around an entirely new poem, written by Ross Sutherland. Different lines of the poem have been translated into an awful lot of different languages. And it’s up to the players to retranslate it into English.
