We'll have a large selection of games there on the day, but as usual feel free to bring along your own games.

    I'll be bringing Fief and Spirit Island - currently wavering over what else to bring. Maybe Millenium Blades, 1846 or Falling Sky.

    • Sebastien C.

      Up for an eventual Fief, or Mare Nostrum if you dont know what to bring xD

      August 4

    • Kevin

      Hmm...I feel like Mare Nostrum is more of a Sunday game.

      Thank you for this email, Gavin! It's useful.

  • Lymperis V.

    Tried to buy a ticket online from eventbrite but I got a SALES ENDED message. Any chance I can get a ticket at the door?

    1 · August 3

    • Gavin B.

      Have fixed that now. Eventbrite uses an American date system so the month and day were the wrong way around. But you should be able to get a ticket on the day.

      August 3

    • Lymperis V.

      Ok thanks
