UK Games Expo 2015 Day 1

Hi Everyone.

So after a pleasant 2 hour train ride to Birmingham, we had to walk to the Hilton hotel and get our tickets.

We quickly got our stuff and started to wander around and get the lay of the land.

The dealer halls opened at 2pm, but there was plenty of open gaming going on. One room had a games library you could borrow from for a small deposit. We are going to head there tomorrow.

Me and Rob where eager to look round the halls, so just before we queue up for one of the larger halls, which had the fantasy flight stand and waited to go in. In all there where 4 alls with dealers and demo spaces.

So what jumped out after looking around for a a few hours. There where some nice bargins to be had straight away. Stars Wars Armanda and Imperial Assault for £55 each.

We played a number of demos and bought some straight after.

Stack Bots - A card game about battling robots. (Bought)

Xi Cards - A magic style card game where you use Time to cast spells and summon creatures. (Probably will)

Colt Express - A excellent combination of RoboRally and Bang. (Bought)

Oddball Aeronauts - A simple card game about battling airships crewed with animals. (Pass bit too simple)

Sopic - A card game where you play cards to get to 1000 points. (Not sure)

By the end of the day we had bought.
  • Stars Wars Armanda
  • Imperial Assault
  • Stack Bots
  • Ninja Dice
  • Colt Express
  • Camel Up and the expansion SuperCup.

Now Day 2. Where we will be focusing on playing games.
