Public Participation Games
2020 Public Participation Games and Activities

Many thanks to all the clubs, organisations and individuals who presented the participation games at Hammerhead 2020. There were some 60 games/activities booked into the main central gaming area of the George Stephenson Exhibition Hall and the Gamers Lounge with a good mix of genre and scales.

The standard of the participation games was very high, both in terms of visual appeal and playability, the Forest Outlaws judges had a very difficult task on their hands in choosing just three games out of all those present!
