WiFi Wars WiFi Wars is a live interactive comedy game show which is hitting the road this summer. By logging into a preconfigured network at the venue with a smartphone or a tablet (making sure you have plenty of battery first!) audiences will be able to take part in a range of games, quizzes, and challenges to win the show, plus prizes, many-many prizes.

The technology used in WiFi Wars was originally created by the boys behind the game show, Go 8-Bit, Steve McNeil and Rob Sedgebeer, and will feature in the new TV adaptation too.

Last year, WiFi Wars made its debut as part of the Royal Institution’s 2015 Summer Programme after Steve and Rob’s appearance on their 2014 BBC Christmas Lectures. Since then, the technology has been re-developed, improved, and updated to create a show full of interactive fun, button bashing, hilarious trash-talking, and competitive frenzy. From a version of one of the earliest arcade games, Pong, right on up to the latest virtual reality technology, this is a show for nerds and norms alike.

As some of us know, Steve is no stranger to the gaming world, having presented Challenge TV’s Videogame Nation, Ginx TV’s Console Yourself as well as Minecraft: Digging Deeper,  whilst this autumn he'll be a team captain on Dave TV's Go 8-Bit. Steve and Rob have also hosted their own stage at Eurogamer’s EGX, welcoming over 80,000 people to the event over its four-day run at Earls’ Court.

So whether you’re a joystick veteran, Angry Birds addict, or a complete noob, this retro gaming experience is an inclusive, highly addictive group activity, proving that anyone can be a gamer.

The tour kicks off with a show at London Udderbelly on the 1st of July, 2016, and will have a limited Edinburgh Festival Fringe run of four dates at the Pleasance DomeBut don't worry if you won't be able to catch any of those dates! Steve and Rob will be announcing more across the UK very-very soon! On a side note, you might also like to know that the show will be featured in a new BBC Radio 4 documentary about video gaming, entitled, While My Guitar Gently Bleeps.
