Dear Richard Denning,
First thanks for this very helpful article.
I have designed several games. 3 of which I have playtested till we can do no more (including at Londons’ Playtest meetup), and I think they are ready to publish.

I now intend to bring these 3 games (a board game and 2 cardgames) to UK Games Expo. Do you suggest I also book a stand? and if so what preparation, props would you advise?
Many thanks, and I look forward to meeting you at the Expo in May.

Richard I think this is an excellent article. As an inventor with up to 100 games to my name – of which 16 are currently being made under licence in India, Sri Lanka, the USA and the UK your advice is absolutely first class. You are right it takes a long time to break into this very competitive market. Inventing is the easy part, I have dreamt my last four. One of them “Word for Word” was taken by Gibsons Games and launched in January. It is the marketing that is difficult. So I wish you all the very best at your current UK Games Expo.
