For those of you that have not been introduced to me yet, I am the new Head of Event Operations and convention organizer for Chip Theory Games. I have been doing games shows for over 15 years and been in the miniature industry for over 20. Board games, however, offer a new and exciting challenge, especially when it comes to sharing with the communities around the world. A challenge in which I am excited to face!
We are expanding our convention presence somewhat in 2018 and even more in 2019. The latest new venture and the first for me is the Games Expo in Birmingham. No, not Alabama, but the sunny island of Great Britain!
The UK Games Expo has fast become the largest convention of its kind in the United Kingdom, and arguably Europe. Tens of thousands of attendees will play thousands of games and see hundreds of companies spanning the board game and miniature games industry.
Chip Theory Games will be proudly displaying their titles for the first time ever in the United Kingdom. We will have stock of the award-winning Hoplomachus, game expansions, and all of our Triplock products. If you have yet to see these games in the flesh then this is the perfect opportunity to get your hands on them!
For those of you wondering about the 3rd print run of Too Many Bones as well as release dates for Undertow – we will be taking pre-orders at the show so you can get your copy the instant it is available.
And finally, our ace-in-the-hole…
We are ecstatic to announce that none other than board game legend Ricky Royal will be joining us on Saturday, June 2nd at the convention! With Hoplomachus being his number one ranked solo game, he is definitely the best person to talk to about tactics, options, and secrets of how to get the most out of these games.
Ricky runs a great games review site called Box of Delights. His depth of knowledge is bottomless, as is his enthusiasm for all things gaming. Do not miss this chance to say hello to him and maybe get your games signed by him too! And be sure to ask Ricky about “Renegade,” his fantastic designer debut published by Victory Point Games as well!
So, what are you waiting for fellow Europeans? Get that flight booked. Get the train tickets purchased. Hire a bike if you need to and come and see us at this amazing event! Chip Theory Games UKGE: booth # 2-E6
