From the UK Games Expo announcement…

We are delighted to announce that Ian Livingstone, a UK Games Expo Hall of Fame Inductee will be our guest this year and will be giving a special seminar entitled…

Games Workshop To Fighting Fantasy To Lara Croft To His Top 10 Board Games

Ian co-founded iconic games company Games Workshop with Steve Jackson in 1975, launching Dungeons & Dragons in Europe. In 1982, he co-authored The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, again with Steve Jackson, the first interactive game book in the Fighting Fantasy series which has sold almost 20 million copies worldwide.

He wrote fifteen of the titles, including City of Thieves, Forest of Doom and Deathtrap Dungeon. Celebrating thirty-five years of Fighting Fantasy, he has written a new book, The Port of Peril, which will be published by Scholastic in August.

He has been awarded a BAFTA Special Award, and was awarded a CBE in the 2013 New Year Honours list.

Find him on Stand F11 At 3pm on Friday 2nd June and Saturday 3rd June and at other times. Ian will be signing copies of his books or any Fighting Fantasy books and other works you might want to bring along. Or just go along and meet him.

At 6pm on Friday 2nd June in the Toute Suite, just outside Hall One he is also giving a talk mentioned above which is exciting news! Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from one of the founding fathers of the hobby games industry.​

We’re excited to meet him and find out about his experiences in the industry. That seminar of his should be fascinating too!
