Andrew Hackard, from Steve Jackson Games, at the UK Games Expo

Steve Jackson is one of the most famous names in gaming. Two extremely influential game designers and entrepreneurs share the name though they live on opposite sides of the Atlantic.

Therefore having someone at the UK Games Expo who could give us a glimpse into what it is like to run the company that brought us Munchkin, GURPS and many others was a real treat.

UK Games Expo 2013. An experience!

And then the UK Games Expo arrived. WOW!

For starters the venue this year was changed. We were located at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole, which is pretty much adjacent to Birmingham NEC and the Airport. Easy to get to by train and plane. The hotel is pretty huge and it was able to accommodate the more than 7000 people the Expo saw last year. And the extra 3000 that have attended this year. It was pretty amazing!

Some of my Favorite Games

I’ve been a bad blogger. I haven’t written anything for this blog since January 15, and here it the last day of March. My sponsor, GMS Magazine, tried to jog me into action a month ago, and it almost worked, but I got busy or lazy or both. It isn’t hard for me to get lazy–I was born that way. And I was working like crazy on Deluxe Tunnels and Trolls in January and February. I’m still working like crazy on that game, but I could have found time to say something about other games I’ve played or liked.

Comparing Card Games

I proudly admit to being a Gamer Geek. I play all kinds of games: FRPs, board games, card games, word games, puzzles, and various computer-based entertainments. Today I am going to talk about collectible card games, and especially about Shadowfist, the game of Hong Kong action movies.
