Only Two Weeks To Go!

We’re on the home stretch. SCGC 2018 is just around the corner. Are you panicking yet? I’m not panicking! Stop panicking!

Let us recap all of the wonderful and interesting and wonderful things that’ll be on offer at this years show:

To kick things off, the evening before the event, we’ll be hosting a ‘Movie & Pizza Night’ at Cinema & Co. where you can hang out with us, eat pizza and watch The Transformers: The Movie (1986).

Then, on the day we will have 50+ guests, vendors and exhibitors; including big name artists, indie comic creators, illustrators, comics and collectibles vendors, cosplay guests, arts and crafts stalls, indie game creators, retro video game vendors and a selection of authors.

Waterstones will be making a welcome return!

Swansea’s own Gamers’ Emporium and Swansea Comics Collective will be there, rocking their stuff, too.

We also have a range of free activities for you;

We will be running two Cosplay Competitions. One being a craftsmanship competition where costumes will be marked by our team of judges Tasha from Sew Swansea, Iron Warrior Cosplays Dyfrig Griffiths, and Russell from Cosbont. There will also be our ever popular Cosplay Masqurade competition for those who just want to show off their costume and have a good time.

Various panels, covering a wide base of fandom, will be held throughout the day in our lovely new panel room. Come along, take a load off and listen in on the experts.

Various display teams will be on hand to show you the ropes when it comes to card, table-top and war gaming. One such display team will be Warlord Games which will be lead by none other than Andy Chambers! The learning will also come courtesy of Asmodee UK, Swansea University Role Play Society, and Swansea Wargames and Boardgames Club. Plus, a team of volunteers from Gamers’ Emporium will be running Magic: The Gathering demonstration games all day.

Tickets can be purchased from The Gamers’ Emporium, The Comix Shoppe, Or Cinema & Co. Swansea.

Exhibitor Spotlight: Howard Ingham/Room 207 Press

We are pleased to confirm that Howard and Room 207 will be returning for SCGC2018.

Howard was kind enough to provide us with a little blurb about himself, please take a bit of time to check it out, below.

Hi, I’m Howard Ingham, I’ve lived in Swansea for the greater part of my life, and I’ve been working as a professional writer and artist for about sixteen years now. I’ve worked on over 50 RPG products for different publishers, including Vampire, Promethean, Mage, Hunter and Changeling for White Wolf, and most recently Modern AGE for Green Ronin. I’m coming as Room 207 Press, and bringing my games, which include Chariot, MSG™ and my new game The Shivering Circle which is a rules light folk horror game with open source rules. I’ll be at my table all day, apart from when I’ll be doing, for the third year in a row, one of the panels for the day, Finding Your Own Role: Role-Playing Games and Your Identity, where I’ll be talking about diversity in games, and how we can play the games we have in ways that are honest to ourselves, and if that sounds interesting, come along and say hi afterwards.
