Geek and Buy 2018. 15.09.18
On September 15th 2018 Geek & Buy held its second annual event, again at the Latton Bush Business Centre in Harlow, Essex.
We had a lot to build on from last year, so expectations were high. Shortly after (early) doors opening, the first wave of early birds arrived – those starting the SHADESPIRE tournament promptly, and also lots who brought impressive collections of games, miniatures and other geeky articles for the Bring & Buy.
The Bring & Buy was absolutely huge this time in terms of the actual volume and range of items on sale. We counted at least twice as many games and goodies as last year! Our charity table (where guests could donate an item for sale – the proceeds going to Cancer Research UK) generated a modest amount – which we would like to build on next year.
The traders were ready for the crowd with a superb range of stock of newly released games. Our crew manning the Gaslands participation game created a truly beautiful deathmatch setup which kept quite a few of our guests playing for most of the day! Our friendly local Harlow Open Games Club brought a selection of games to play.
We were humbled not only at the impressive turnout for the day, but also the vast number of attendees who stayed for most of the day to play games, shop, and make new friends.
