Announcing GI2018

BIG NEWS! The Great Indoors is back for its third year in 2018.

On Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th July GI2018 will take place at Parkside Suite, Bromsgrove. You may or may not be aware but this is the first time the event will run over two days. We are very keen to cater for increasing numbers of attendees and provide the best experience possible. To that end, we have received feedback suggesting there is demand for a whole weekend event; in addition it was always our aim eventually for The Great Indoors to be a weekend event. We feel that the time is right for this and hope that you'll be able to join us for one or even both days. While pricing is not finalised at this point, having the venue for two days will enable us to offer weekend tickets at a reduced rate while not penalising those who wish to only attend for one day.

My Origins 2017 Highlight Reel

For those of you out there who may not know, Origins is like the American version of the U.K. Games Expo. Think of it as our U.S. Open to your Wimbledon. (What's that? No, it's a tennis tournament. We have one of those over here too. It happens after Wimbledon. Well, it's kind of a big deal. I mean, I thought it was a big deal. Nevermind.)

So Origins is a gaming convention held in Columbus, Ohio in June each year. I went for the first time last year. And couldn't wait to go back this year. The Fun Group didn't go (losers!) but I went with the Hubz and two of our gaming friends from back in the day. I won't bore you with a detailed play-by-play, I'll just hit the highlights.

The Great Indoors 2016

Saturday 30th July was the culmination of a year and a half's work: the Great Indoors came to Bromsgrove Rugby Club. For no good reason, other than wishing that there were more local board game events (and I like organising things), I had decided to explore the possibility of creating my very own event and turn this
