The Games Brains of Brighton Xmas Pub Quiz 2017 is HERE!


We are inviting all of you games studios in the South East to take part in a whole night of Christmassy games 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 home the trophy and a whole year of bragging rights!  

Brighton's newest (and awesome) bar C:\ Side Quest will be the venue hosting us this time around and with a larger capacity, so there will be more competition than ever!

All attendees will benefit from a free drink each on the night from your organisers, hosts and all round nice guys at Skillsearch - and also receive an exclusive 10% discount on any food ordered from C:\ Side Quest's very own Cactus Kitchen Gals!

Can anyone knock last year's winners, Wish Studios off their perch?

Here's a natural shot we took of everybody milling about, having fun, not having been asked to pose at all last year:
