After the success of last year’s quiz, Skillsearch is happy to announce that the Games Brains of Brighton Quiz 2016 is now up, running and accepting contending teams.

 
We are inviting all of you games studios to take part in a night of fun in the form of a five round computer games quiz, for the prestigious title “Games Brains of the Year” – and the winners get to take the trophy home, to proudly adorn the office!

 

 

Each team entry will cost £60, and there will be 6 players maximum per team. ALL proceeds will be going to Special Effect, and each team member will receive a free drink and a buffet of snacks, courtesy of your evening’s hosts; Skillsearch!

Can anyone knock last year’s winners, TheChineseRoom off their perch?

 

 

All you have to do to enter is use the link below to donate your team’s £60 to guarantee your place on the night. Please remember to put the name of your studio in the comments when making your donation so we know who you are, and tick the gift aid box too!
