The Glasgow Game
The Glasgow Game is an online game available in English, Arabic and Polish, designed to give players a unique insight into the city. Did you know that: there was originally no platform 13 in Glasgow Central Station because it was considered too unlucky, that Glasgow has the world’s third oldest subway, or indeed that Cowcaddens is from a Gaelic term meaning ‘corner of the hazels’ and has nothing to do with cows? The game aims to develop people’s understanding of Glasgow’s outstanding built heritage and the story behind the city’s much-loved architecture. Users can play the game in English, or Arabic and Polish (the two most common non-English languages spoken by newcomers to the city.) It features well known landmarks including: Charles Rennie Mackintosh favourites Scotland Street School Museum and the Glasgow School of Art; Glasgow Green and Central Station. The game is loosely based on snakes (the River Clyde) and ladders (the Glasgow Subway)! Click below to play!
