After its debut event in 2018, Tabletop Gaming Live will return to Alexandra Palace 28-29 September, playing host to hundreds of the year’s biggest and best board games.

Dedicated to every type of analogue game, Tabletop Gaming Live will feature the latest board games, card games, roleplaying games, miniatures, wargames, family games, party games and oh so much more. Publishers, designers and creators from the industry will be showcasing some old favourites as well as plenty of new releases, including the latest from Gen Con and upcoming releases from the German Essen Spiel Game fair.

Among the hottest games due to appear at the show is the re-release of Dune, the legendary tabletop adaptation of the sci-fi movie considered ‘lost’ for 35 years, and Disney Villainous: Evil Comes Prepared, the latest expansion for the popular board game starring villains from Disney movies, such as The Lion King’s Scar.

Other favourites include; Ticket to Ride: Lond, Star Wars: Outer Rim, Pandemic: Rapid Response, The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-earth, Sushi Roll and Kingdomino Duel.

Alongside demos and traders on the show floor, Tabletop Gaming Live will feature a huge open gaming area, with local board game café The Ludoquist providing a library of more than 400 new and classic titles for players to play. Players can freely grab a table to play games they’ve brought from home – as well as those they purchase during the weekend.

Games Workshop co-founder Ian Livingstone will lead a weekend full of talks and panels, with designers, experts and members of the gaming community speaking on a variety of subjects, from getting started with roleplaying to offering insight into the making of popular games such as Hellboy: The Board Game, Escape the Dark Castle and King of Tokyo.

Tickets for Tabletop Gaming Live are available now from Ticket Factory. Prices start from £11, with weekend passes and family bundles available. Children under 10 accompanied by an adult can attend for free. Those who purchase their tickets ahead of the show will be granted entry an hour before visitors who buy on the door.
