So this weekend was International Table Top Day; a day of table top gaming around the world. Things where buzzing on all social media fronts, forums, FB, Twitter etc. In South Africa it happened to fall on a long weekend which meant even more time for games!
This weekend marks the 20th anniversary of Hobby-X, South Africa’s premier hobby expo. There’s going to be lots to see, even talks on how to turn a profit from your hobby but what I want to see is the Solarpop exhibit. Solarpop is a company formed by the merger of the 3 largest table top game distributors in SA.
Timeless Board Games is still having their monthly board games event and it’s fantastic! Life has prevented me from going to the last 3 or 4 of them but I got to go through this time and hopefully I’ll keep it up for the rest of the year. There have been a few changes to the formula; all of which look like they are going to be a success.
This weekend saw the 2017 Blood Bowl kick off for the Warbanner gaming club. With a total of 9 players, every one still green to the game, we had a fun Sunday of football mayhem!
As you may already know Games Workshop has recently re-released a very popular game of theirs, Blood Bowl. This weekend saw Battle Wizards host a casual play event to get people gaming and learning the rules.
