Mad Mini Banner2

Stuff not to miss!

There will be an Aladdin's cave of goodies in the Trade Hall's at UK Games Expo on 3rd to 5th June. You will have seen a number of posts by companies telling us about their plans but today we wanted to highlight some deals and opportunities we are offering or arranged as a partnership between UKGE and other companies.
The Souvenir Miniature
As this is our 10th anniversary we wanted to produce something you could all remember the occasion by. So we have commissioned this great looking exclusive miniature from Otherworld Miniatures. This superbly detailed 28mm mini shows an orc off to the expo, dice in hand and a back pack full of gaming essentials.
Also on sale at UKGE Merchandise stand A3.
Note the miniature comes unpainted. But we have you covered - read on.

Get your Free Brush at Games and Gear

UK Games Expo and Games and Gear have come together to offer a number of souvenir items. The first of these is a FREE paint brush. Games and Gear have 1500 paint brushes with 500 available each day on a first come and first claimed basis. These are superb high quality brushes and are sure to make your miniatures stand out. Go to the Games and Gear stand D25 to get yours.
On the same stand you can buy sets of special limited edition UK Games Expo brush sets, dice and coins.

Win a Geeknson Game Table at UK Games Expo 2016.

Come to UK Games Expo on the Saturday and you will have the chance to win one of these amazing games tables. That's right: Geeknsons are offering a table to be won by one lucky visitor - prize includes delivery to a UK address. Remember to collect your free draw entry wrist band at a help desk from 11am on the Saturday only. The draw will be just before 5pm on the Saturday and only visitors in the hall get a chance to win.
This table is a ideal size for most big 6-player games and by using a special divider - 'Strake Board' - it can be divided in smaller gaming spaces.

Win a copy of Pandemic – Reign of Cthulhu.

Instead of curing diseases like in the ground-breaking original Pandemic, players have to work together to seal portals and shut down cults in the classic New England fictional towns of Arkham, Dunwich, Innsmouth, and Kingsport. Can you and your fellow investigators manage to find and seal every portal in time? Hurry before you lose yourself to insanity and the evil that lurks beneath your feet...
Z-Man and UKGE have arranged for a limited number of copies to be available for the UKGE, 2 months before the official release at GenCon. These will not be available on general sale however. Due to anticipated interest UKGE will be raffling the limited copies available.

How to enter

To enter the raffle to win a copy of Pandemic – Reign of Cthulhu. visit the UKGE Merchandise Stand A3. Answer a question put to you on the stand and buy 1 or more tickets at £3 a go. Then attend the raffle draws at 4pm on Friday and Saturday and 14.45 on Sunday at the Main Stage and see if you have won one of the copies.
