What Makes For A Good Games Master?

27 Comments

We talk about what makes for a good Games/Dungeon Master with some of the best here at UK Games Expo.

It's a delicate and fine art, sometimes a thankless task too, and so when you get a good Games Master you should certainly make sure you give them their due!

What do you think makes for a good GM/DM when you get to the tabletop?

We Meet The Vikings At UK Games Expo

28 Comments

We promised you a video and here's us meeting with the Vikings down on the beach here at the UK Games Expo.

It's great to delve into some history here and learn about the different games that the Vikings might have played during the period.

Come & Have A Go At The Board Game Library

26 Comments

One of the best things about the UK Games Expo is the Board Game Library where you can pay a small fee and try as many games as you like from their collection.

So, come and give this a go over the weekend and see if anything takes your fancy. THEN you can go and snap up some cool games from the vendors.

We’ve stopped in with Games Workshop to play through a Demo Game of the new Warhammer 40,000 8th Edition.

This new version of the game and Dark Imperium, that we’re using now, is now available for you to pre-order from the Games Workshop webstore.

Let us know what you think of the key mechanics on display here and if you’re going to be getting into the game.

damn it … we need to know this.
Poor squats are ignored by everyone.
(they also would have been a much better faction than those new space marines … )

It is good to see the UK getting in some multi-day conventions for gaming. Multi-day cons are a staple here in the States, but it seems like the UK has more single day events. However, we don’t have the proliferation of gaming clubs, so cons are sometimes the only place we can get in some less common games.
