The Steel City Galaxies adventure game invites families to blast off across Sheffield, visiting nine different games-related venues along a 2.5 mile route.
Hosted by the Sheffield Games Collective, Steel City Galaxies casts the players in the role of daring Star Captains, exploring the vast Steely Way galaxy in search of an ancient starship.
Along the way, players will encounter mysterious aliens, dastardly Space Pirates and venture deep into the centre of the galaxy, all while having plenty of fun exploring the city.
Players can start their adventure at Patriot Games on Mary Street, any time from the 21 August. All instructions will be provided on displays located inside and outside each participating venue, which means that the game can be played at any time of day.
Would-be space explorers simply need a six-sided die, a strong imagination and the ability to move across the city centre in order to play.
