UK Games Expo

Well, the UK Games Expo has come and gone for another year. I’m going to be doing a feature on the show in the end-of-June podcast, but I just wanted to say a couple of things here in the mean time.

First of all, what a great show!

I had a fantastic time. It’s great to play games all weekend!And I played some great games – Sumeria, Fzzt! and Snow Tails all deserve a mention, though I think Sumeria was my favourite game of the show. Unfortunately I didn’t get to play either Automobile or Last Train to Wensleydale as those tables were packed all weekend.

The C&C Ancients tournament on Sunday was great fun – despite me being placed a mere 7th. However, 7 games in just over 6 hours was very intensive! Many thanks to Barry Ingram for a well organised day. Definitely be back next year.

Finally, it was great to meet everyone who came and said ‘Hi’. It was especially good to finally meet up with the guys from the ‘Into the Gamescape’ Podcast. We had a great chat and even got to play a game together!

A highly recommended day – book it in your diary for next year.
