2016’s UK Games Expo had many winners - everyone who attended the event had a lot of fun – and the total attendance figures added up to 25,000 people over the three days. The Games Expo also regularly has a series of Expo Awards, handed out this year by The Doctor himself, Colin Baker.
The full list often works as a solid set of recommendations. Mayfair Games’ Isle of Skye is both beautiful and highly engaging, whilst Star Wars: Rebellion is easily the best Star Wars-themed game ever produced. Old school roleplayers will be delighted that cult classic Call of Cthulhu took home the prize for its latest edition, and we are delighted to learn that penguin mayhem game Ice Cool also took home a prize.
