This weekend, 1st-3rd June, gamers will be converging on Birmingham for a three days of fun and games for the UK Games Expo (sometimes known as UKGE, or simply Expo). The event has a very different feel to Essen in October, as it is focussed on gamers playing games rather than publishers selling new games. In addition to Euro Games, there are lots of role/cos players, miniatures games, and war games, with tournaments as well as plenty of “open gaming” space, talks and play testing. The event is now in its twelfth year and every year is bigger than the last: this year it will be occupying three halls in the of the NEC as well as the NEC Hilton Metropole. Several of the GOATS are planning to go this year, some for just a day, others for the duration, and it is certain that it will be a fun weekend.
