We have just received this press release about a social games weekend in Limerick aimed at 15-21 year olds.

Takes place on the 15th of January, 12-5pm and 16th of January, 1-4pm at the Belltable Arts Centre, 69, O Connell Street, Limerick. Entry is free. Read on.


To launch it’s new gaming platform, Make and Do will host PlayFair ≠1, Back to the Future, as part of the Youth Arts Festival, at the Belltable Arts Centre, Limerick.

For their maiden voyage, PlayFair ≠1, goes back to the future presenting a suite of old school analogue social games in a futuristic context. For two days the Belltable Arts Centre will be a playground of games, challenges, tomfoolery, creativity and interaction!!!

Social games? What? We define social/pervasive games as those which involve bodies, minds and souls all at once. Games like Stag Hunt, Trap Street and Double Agent ask the players to interact with their city using real people, real places, and in real time. We will also have Limerick based artists and theatremakers showcasing and testing brand new games.

So, if you want to have some fun, meet new people, play some games you’ve never played before and maybe even come up with ideas for your own game, PlayFair ≠1 is for you!!

Who are Make and Do?

Make and Do are a collective of artists, technologists, and designers who work in the intersection between art, technology, and games. We curate games events like PlayFair and design interactive theatre experiences like Emil and the Detectives. We are developing interesting cross platform and transmedia projects using the urban landscape as our playground.
