Zip it up at Student Pride
01 March 2013

For this year’s Student Pride, GSN is pumped for Zip-It!

I don’t know if you’ll remember, but last year we were ‘bananas’ for Bananagrams, and this year our wordy appetites have been whetted once again.

Zip-It is sort-of like a high-speed scrabble/crossword mashup.

Each player gets dice with one letter on each face, and then you shake them up and throw them on a table (or wherever) and try to form words.

The aim of the game is to complete ‘the grid’. Using all the dice, you need to make sure they all form a series of words that all connect.

Gay Star News will be handing out the games, as well as a plethora of goodies – including Green & Black’s chocolate, at our stall for Student Pride at the Brighton Dome, Saturday 2 February, from 12-5.30pm.

Other events include a discussion on homophobia in sport, featuring rugby legend Ben Cohen and footballer Graeme Le Saux.

An awards ceremony will be hosted by The Feeling lead singer Dan Gillespie, honoring journalists activists, youth groups and even prominent Twitter folk for supporting LGBT rights and community.
