Two More Games Events For Your Diary

GameCamp 4 – 4th May 2011 in London
The first is GameCamp 4, still in London but at a new larger, more central location than the previous events. I attended GameCamp3 last year see my post on it here. The early bird tickets sold out on the day they were released and te second tranche are selling fast. The following is taken from their web site

GameCamp 4 brings us back to the dynamic and stimulating unconference format, like GameCamps 1 and 2. No prearranged talks, no guests, no keynote speakers, just a massive crowd of movers, shakers, thinkers and creators from all areas of the world of games and ready to discuss them.

Once again we’ll have break-out spaces, a library of modern and classic board-games for people to play, food and drink, and loads of other stuff going on.

UK GamesExpo - 3rd to 5th June 2011 in Birmingham

The next event is the UK Games Expo arguable the premier games event in the UK, it runs from Friday (playing games only) through to Sunday in Birmingham. Of particular interest will be the events Imagination Gaming will be running on the Saturday and Sunday focused on introducing a whole range of games to families, young and old. Taken from the UK GamesExpo web site:

Imagination Gaming will be bringing a range of games from all over the world, some of which you may know, others that you will not, but all of which will have you thinking, laughing and enjoying yourselves. We will have a host of games covering lots of different topics that will be suitable for everyone from six to ninety six! We will have card, board, tile, puzzle, dice, strategy, two player games, four player games, eight player games and even twenty four players if we can get them.

All of the games we are bringing are used in our work with schools, libraries and youth clubs and so on so we know how much people love playing them. They are all simple to learn, easy to play and don’t last too long, which means you will be able to play a huge number of games before the day is through and nearly all of the games are better when played in a big group, so we will make sure you get to meet lots of other people and make some new friends and gamers along the way.

We will have a great team of demonstrators with us ensuring you have the best of times and teaching you how to play the games in the quickest and cleverest ways possible.
