GiCC Initial Lineup

 

 

 

 

May the 4th

STAR DASH is GiCC’s preview event to celebrate 40th anniversary of New Hope.

 

This is a outdoor game in which players meet and get briefed by Rebel officers that took part in many secret operations against Empire across all generations of Star Wars movies(check guests list above).

Mission is simple:
Players have to find secret code cards and collect special numbers. Problem is that the city is under Storm Troopers control. Players have to avoid contact by all means and safely get back to headquarters. It is a type of treasure hunt game with extra twist.

Winners of the game will be invited to celebrate the victory in O’Reilly’s on the 6th of May (Saturday 8pm) with our special Star Wars guests.

 

Tickets are £20 available in the shop or via the following Main Street stores: Euphoria, Music Corner & Vijay’s
