People who’ve gone last year weren’t sorry. Come early – you can get fantastic deals, but they’ll be gone in first 15 minutes.
“Game Market” is the biggest boardgame event in Japan which is all about boardgames. Our purpose is to promote boardgames to more people and have them meet and play together and forge lasting friendships within a common hobby.
Boardgames are not the only paper games promoted at the show: there are cardgames, RPGs, and simulation-type games. Game Market contains everything about paper games including demonstrating and selling games. One of the highlights of this show is the auction of antique/rare boardgames.
