PaizoCon UK before the Friday Fusion Feast

The players at PaizoCon UK were incredibly generous this year. Together we raised £1,246. There were many special donations from individuals and bids in an auction to play in special games run by our VIP guests, Erik Mona, Richard Pett and Tonya Woldridge. Paizo gave us a unique copy of the unreleased "Horror Adventures", signed by all their talented staff, for our raffle. We made a donation of £1,200 to the Birmingham Childrens Hospital and £46 to continue our support for Warhorn.

This was the icing on the cake for a hugely succesfull convention that started and ended in the pub, with lots of socialising and eating and some very special games. We were honoured to have many guests from France, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Switzerland, Malaysia, Scotland, Ireland and America. Thank you all for coming and making this such a success. Take a look at the photo gallery.

3XP was a delight, this summer. Carol Tierney, the mastermind behind it all, says, "Thank you so much to everyone who came to 3XP. We raised £1228 for charity which is fantastic! You are all amazing! I am once again completely overwhelmed by your generosity. I hope you enjoyed your games as much as I did. Special thanks to our wonderful GMs and the ever awesome Di and Pauline our kitchen team and of course to Chris Brockley-Blatt for being the best partner and co-organiser."

The early figures for UK Games Expo 2016 show an attendance of 25,149 over 3 days and 12,636 unique visitors. This year, the halls in the Hilton were entirely given over to tabletop games, tournaments, seminars, bring and buy and roleplaying events. The massive Hall 1 of the National Exhibition Centre was packed with Trade. I saw stands piled high with boxes on day one and less than five boxes at the end. Everyone had a big smile on their face by the end of the event. Take a look at our photo gallery.

UK Games Expo 2016

Now in its 10th Year, UK Games Expo (UKGE) is the largest games convention in the UK. The Pathfinder team has always been proud to play a part in it. You can find all Pathfinder games in the Colonial Suite of the Hilton Metropole Hotel. Look out for the pop-up banners outside the doors. There are still a few spaces left in some Pathfinder games.

UK Games Expo is a bit different this year. If you have pre-booked you can collect your pack of Entry Ticket and any Event Tickets from Hall 1 of the NEC. (Bring your UKGE customer page confirmation OR PayPal receipt OR name and email address). The Main Ticketing desk is open THURSDAY Noon – 8pm. FRIDAY 8.30am – 5pm SATURDAY 8.30am – 5pm. SUNDAY 8.30am – 4pm.

From Friday onwards, an Event Desk will be open at the Hilton Hotel Library Room from 9am – 8pm for buying event tickets. From 6pm – 8pm you will also be able to collect pre-ordered tickets.

If you want to play an existing Pathfinder Society character please make sure you have added the Class and Level Additional Information to your games on your UK Games Expo customer page.

Don't miss our “Pathfinder Special – A Taste of The Blight” on Saturday Night. It’s the UK preview of Richard Pett's crooked city "The Blight". It will offer Players and GMs a first chance to try adventuring in this nightmare city. Pregens will be provided and new players are welcome.
