We had a great time at EGX London this past weekend!
The very first morning of the show, we found these in the queue line. It seems likely that some developer dropped these, and lost the keys to their stuff. Rule #57382829 of trade shows: Split up the keys, because if you lose them…
This show was new to us, and we found that it was a weird mix of many shows… much like RTX, you could get tattoos, 3 lbs of fudge, and mystery boxes. Like Tokyo Game Show, San Diego Comic-Con, and PAX East, the main event took place a long linear hall that made for good exercise. Like PAX West, you had some evening programming and board games options, but things would mostly wind down after-hours.
The show venue was about 2x that of Comic-Con, so just imagine two long sausage shaped halls next to each other connected by a food mall. They also set up a county fair type area in the adjacent hall with rides and bouncy houses, so there were a lot of kids having a lot of fun.
We had a great time bringing our games to EGX London, and you can see our photos from the event here. It will be interesting to see how next week goes at MCM Comic-Con London… it should be a smaller show, but we’re just as excited for it!
