Attending the UK Games Expo this year? The official app might come in handy21 Mar 2018 0
The UK Games Expo is the UK’s largest hobby games convention, and an ever-rising star in the calendar of UK events that cater to board games, card games and all that stuff we enjoy in physical as well as digital forms.
With digital ports of board games on the rise this year, it wouldn’t be out of place for some mobile games to either be announced or shown off at an event like UKGE. Also, I like representing the home turf every now and then.
If you’re thinking of attending the show yourself, you might be interested in knowing that the official companion app for the show has now been updated for 2018.
Sponsored and developed in partnership with Inside the Box Publishing (an indie table-top publisher based in London), it’s supposed to provide a useful guide to the show, as well as facilitate things like ticketing and participation events. The feature list from the official blog post includes:
- The 2018 Exhibitor List.
- The 2018 Events list.
- A general information update on food options and a location map.
- It will be used for the Passport Treasure Hunt where you can win £300 of vouchers a day to spend at UK Games Expo Passport Sponsors stands during the show.
- It allows Wyvern's Lair Voting by the audience on game pitches by budding designers.
- It is how you can vote on the UK Games Expo Popular Choice Awards.
- It will facilitate ticket collection and Bring and Buy check out.
