Game Market 2012 in Tokyo, Japan
The Game Market 2012 convention will be held in Tokyo again on Nov 18th, near Asakusa station. Lots of great games to see and try. It’s 800yen entry fee, the details are in this link. You can also buy the catalog around October (which is
the ticket to enter the convention) at Yellow Submarine. So if you are interested in checking out a board gaming convention, mark this in your diary.

Put May 13th in your calendars 🙂
On May 13th, it’s the annual Tokyo Game Market. There’s a lot to see and buy. Lots of great board games. Lots of ENGLISH board games, and of course I’ll be there (but if you want to see me, you’ll need your running shoes on, as I’ll be running around buying games). If you are free, just pop along, and go visit some of the great stalls. Also it’s right next to Asakusa…ooohh…
JIGG (Booth 122) will be there, Castle Tintagel (Booth 123) will be there. OKAZU games (127) will be there. Joe Yamasaki will be there!!! (He’s the man! He supplies me my fix). Oooh I can’t wait.
If you want to go, you can buy a catalog at the door, or pre-buy one at Yellow Submarine/Shosen Grand *800yen only. Lots of games to try, and you can even win games.

Finally all the arrangements have been made and it is true!
JIGG Tokyo will attend this spring Game Market with a booth!
JIGGer’s all around the world rejoice!!!
For people that havent attended before, “Game Market” is the biggest boardgame event in Japan which is all about boardgames. It’s lately growing to be the GenCon of japan! A few of us attended the GM in past years, but not organized as a group. This years GM gives us the chance to promote JIGG to a broader audience and have an increasing number of members join our ranks!

Game Market 2011 on the 27th! All the big named Japanese gaming stores? will be there, R&R station, Mobius Games, Hobby Japan, Banesto, Shosen Bookstore. It’s 800yen entry, and all you need to do is buy the catalog/magazine at Yellow Sub, or another gaming store.
I think this will be one of Japan’s biggest board game fairs.
I’ll be going, so if you want to come, get your catalog, and I’ll see you wandering around there 🙂

The 21st Tokyo Game Show may be predicting a slight downturn in attendance (190,000 visitors expected, compared to 200,000 last year), but the vast numbers still make it the biggest entertainment fair in the world. 1,550 exhibitors are expected to sign up for the event this year, and organisers have added three new exhibiting areas: the Mobile & Social Game Area, the Gaming PC & Network Game Area, and the Gaming Device Area. A must for game boys, game girls and cosplay freaks alike, visitors ought to note that the four-day show is only open to the public on September 17 and 18.
On the weekend where Cryptozoic will be holding Realm Championships around the world, we will do our own unofficial Realm Championships in our own little corner of the world!
Become the ‘unofficial’ Japan Realm Champion!

My name is Jason, and my wife and I are gamers. We enjoy roleplaying,
board games, and Magic: the Gathering. We’d like to invite gamers to
our house on Sundays, though a steady, weekly commitment is, of
course, not necessary. Basically, we’ve got the space, the games
(though others can feel free to bring along theirs, too), and the
time, so why not enjoy gaming?
For our roleplaying game, we’ve got a drop-in game we can do. More info here:
We love to play MtG, mainly Commander, not standard 60-card version.
If you’ve got decks, bring ’em.
We also have the board games “Axis & Allies”, “Samurai Swords”, and
will soon be getting “Mansions of Madness”.
All are welcome, so if you’re free any Sunday, drop by. If you want to
play, cool. If you want to run something, that’s also cool. Just let
us know in advance.
Place: Jason and Karyn’s house
Station: Nanasato (Tobu-Noda line)
Time: 1 pm ~ last train
