It’s been a while now since this year’s UK Games Expo (UKGE – the UKs biggest convention for all things gaming). But I haven’t forgotten about all the games that I was fortunate to see and – most of the time – play! You’re surrounded by so many games, constantly moving from one to the next, and it’s sometimes hard to take stock of the qualities of each one. Having now had time to reflect, I want to share the games that really left a lasting impression on me.
This year’s UK Games Expo (UKGE) – a weekend-long celebration of all things gaming – has been and gone. This year was truly massive, extending across 2 trade halls – and it needed to be, to house the thousands of gamers attending! One thing I love about UKGE is that there is so much going on that everyone goes for different reasons and has an experience unique to them.
Here are my highlights from this year’s EPIC UKGE 2018!
The UK Games Expo (UKGE) is arguably the biggest highlight of the UK tabletop gaming calendar. Board game enthusiasts along with board game designers, publishers and retailers transcend on the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham for 3 epic days of gaming. Last year was my first time at the expo, where I attended Saturday and Sunday, and I loved every minute of it! Now, with UKGE 2018 fast approaching, I want to share 8 lessons that I learnt from UKGE 2017 – and how I’ll be getting the most out of this year!
