This weekend (21st-23rd August) the team will be attending UK Games Expo Online. This is normally the UK’s biggest board game convention, but with COVID-19 ongoing it has been switched to online. While we are sad to not be there in person, we are excited that people from all over the world can tune in and enjoy the event.
We have a lot of events scheduled throughout the weekend and would love to see you in chat to ask questions and learn more about what we’ve been up to and our plans for 2021. You’ll find us on stand 1820 in the virtual hall, and we have put together a schedule of when you can join us live in chat (all times are BST).
Join the team as we discuss what we’ve been up to over lockdown, what we’re working on AND what 2021 holds for Aconyte Books.
