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.

This sounds good, I know a lot people who are interested in games but don’t pick them just in case they don’t like it and this solves their problem.

really great idea – try before you buy especially since some games are over the £50 mark – it’s a lot of money to be sitting in a game you never play – it’s stopped me buying games in the past

Really nice idea, and I wish I was near Oxford to try it out.

This is what jumped out at me when my son and I went to UKGE for the first time, nothing about this is about the hard sell. It’s about like minded people enthused about games wanting you to enjoy yourselves and for them to show off their game. So much space to game and the Thirsty Meeple guys are just brilliant!!

Please forgive this shameless post as I’m going after either the 4Ground stuff or the Bushido stuff. I play Bushido here in the states. I teach it to whoever will listen, and I just try and represent it as it is. The best miniature game I’ve played.

Was such a great show, really glad to see you guys in person walking around and providing great coverage.
Ghostel was my favourite purchase and loved Fabled Realms from 4ground.

Have seen this at conventions here. It is just a great idea.

If i`d of made it to UK GE, i would of spent all weekend in “the Board Game Library” area. Then it would of been last minute run around buying the games i wanted, and hoping i would get them all before closing time.

I will make it one year, and i will get to play before you buy. As you never know, there may be a game you never considered playing…………………..like a card game, as i`m not a big fan of the just card based games. So the “Library” is a great way to explore all games, wonder if there`s a…………..gaming postal version.

That is an amazing set up. And only one person has to have the card and all the friends can play.
