Tokyo`s Annual Game Market

by Mandy Tong

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.

2-6-5, Hanakawado, Taito Ward, Tokyo, Japan , Tokyo

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 🙂
