Tabletop Zone

Tabletop Games

Board games and chill

Much like the Retro Games zone, our Tabletop Games area offers all the nostalgia you could ever need. A slightly calmer area (apart from the occasional sob of a sore loser), this is the perfect place if you want to take a breather from the show floor, make new friends and play some awesome, screen-free games. This will be our biggest tabletop area yet, so make sure you check it out!

What’s there?

Feast your eyes on our classic fan favourites. Choose from Catan, Dungeons and Dragons, Haunted House on the Hill, Dobble and more. This unique area also features brand new tabletop games from some of the biggest vendors in the industry, so pull up a chair and get comfy!

You’ll also be able to chat with tabletop developers and publishers and seek out recommendations for games similar to your old favourites. Time flies in the Tabletop Games Zone, so make sure you leave a generous block in your EGX schedule to kick back and roll the dice. 

Is DnD more your thing?

If becoming a Bard, Paladin or something in between is more your thing, ask for Dungeons & Dragons. New to the game? No problem! There are beginner level games running all weekend long and experienced folk on hand to help you get started. Or…try your hand at Wrath of Ashardalon - the D&D co-op adventure game that’ll have you embarking on the quest of a lifetime!

Postmark

Postmark is the games studio of designers Matthew Dunstan and Rory Muldoon. Since 2021 we’ve been making approachable, sustainable board games that are printed and played on single sheets of paper. With the addition of a few six-sided dice and a pen, our games transform the humble A4 or letter page into engaging worlds that are enjoyed by thousands of players worldwide.

We’ll be demoing VOYAGES and Aquamarine at EGX. 

Embark on a journey of exploration in VOYAGES. 1-100 players captain their own ship as they voyage across an ocean, building a crew, taking on marauders and charting islands. Pick up a free demo of map 1 from our stand in the tabletop zone.

Dive into the ocean in Aquamarine. Playing solo or multiplayer, divers will navigate sea caves and discover wildlife as they manage their time and air beneath the waves. 

Shaft

Shaft is a 3-6 player board game in which a motley crew of space prospectors must flee a ravenous alien, weighing up a balance between working together to keep the alien at bay and betraying each other to be the first (and only) one to escape with their life.

Each round, players act by placing any number of cards from their hands face down. They can chat and charm all they like, but when the cards get simultaneously resolved some surprises are inevitable. The crew haven't an honourable atom between them, after all.

Wilmot

Come playtest an early version of Wilmot!  A co-op party game based on the videogame Wilmot's WarehouseCollaborate to place the colourful item tiles into a warehouse, remember their position and later match them with the correct customer cards in a chaotic final round.We’re looking for players excited to fully blind playtest the game, including reading the rules. Learning and playing the game should take 45-60mins all together.
