Games Expo 2016 - Day One - Dashboard champion.

Part one of the GamesExpo 2016 report.

It is difficult to believe that a whole year has gone by since we last went up to Birmingham for our first experience of the Games Expo. But indeed a year has passed. Ed, Joe and Mike went up on the Thursday evening, and Dan and I joined them on the following morning. Unfortunately Pete, (Sgt. Slaughter), was not able to attend this time around. Oddly Dan and I played our first game at the service station on the M40. In a game of Dashboard Gladiators, my wind up chameleon, Chuck Chuckleson (below), was all conquering over Dan's wind up, hand standing, Panda, Pendleton. For an instant replay of that battle, please visit the Orbital Bombardment Twitter entry for the 3rd June @OBDZC.

GamesExpo 2016 preparation

Ed, Mike, Joe Dan and myself are going up to the Birmingham NEC for this year's GamesExpo. Three days of board and miniature gaming goodness. I have entered two tournaments; Drop Zone Commander on the Saturday and Infinity N3 on the Sunday. Others in the group have also chosen some different events, Bushido and Guild Ball amongst them. If you can, please come and say hello to me (Alex Randall), and the guys.
