Once again, gamers are converging on Birmingham for three days of fun at the thirteenth UK Games Expo (sometimes known as UKGE, or simply Expo). This event is focused on gamers playing games rather than publishers selling new games, so has a different feel to “Essen” in October. The event used to be held in the NEC Hilton Metropole, but now also occupies a large chunk of the NEC and as the event expands it is becoming increasingly commercial. In addition to Euro Games, there are a lot of cos players miniatures games, and war games, with tournaments as well as plenty of “open gaming” space, talks and play testing. Several of the GOATS are planning to go this year, some for just a day, others for several days, and it is certain that it will be a fun weekend.
