Many UK BGG members like myself have done the pilgrimage to Essen and many UK Board Game Traders and publishers have done so as well. UK Games Expo is aiming to create an event in the UK inspired by the Great Essen Spiel.
The board game publishers along with other gaming genres have pushed this event forward. Now we open our doors to BGG members and say Come, support the event and have some fun.
We have 100 tournaments and RPG sessions plus over 50 public participation
games tables and over 50 exhibitors with:
· Great board games including new releases. Sneak Peak at the new Talisman. New games from Ragnar Brothers, JKLM, Warfrog, Surprised Stare and others!
· RPGS inclduing a sneak peak at Dark heresy and 30+ Games systems. Some Living RPG events.
· Card games including major qualifying Magic and WOW events
· Miniatures games including Flames of war and new Star Wars Ships
· Computer Games including Guild Wars and LAN games and the Wii.
· Imperial storm troopers from Star wars.
· Specially for kids: Wizkids are sponsoring a special Star Wars Look
a Like Competition. Come dressed as a character from Star Wars and you can
win a prize!

Old enough to know what's right
Young enough not to choose it
And if you can't wait until June, come to Baycon in April www.baycon.co.uk and get a 4-day fix!
David Norman who is running the Grand Board Game Tournament at UK Games Expo will actually be at Baycon. So whilst you are having fun there see David and sign up for our tournament in June. Prizes include games signed by Reiner Knizia, vouchers to spend on the trade stands and others.
