This week we’re talking about events. Here’s Andy to tell us more…
Mantic Games attends events, such as AdeptiCon, UK Games Expo, Gen Con, and SPIEL. Additionally, we run our own events at our HQ and at external venues, for example the Spring Open Day, and Clash Kings.
Sometimes, like at AdeptiCon, we do both, running tournaments and participation games in synergy with the host event!
So let’s take a look at what’s coming up for us here in the UK. Today I’ll cover the following events which are on sale now:
- DreadBall Launch Celebration – Tickets | Facebook Event
- Kings of War Doubles – Tickets | Event Pack | Facebook Event
- DreadBall UK Championship – Tickets | Event Pack | Facebook Event
- Clash of Kings UK Championship – Tickets | Event Pack | Facebook Event
Here at Mantic HQ we have a perfectly sized room that allows us to host club meets, tournaments, campaigns, play test days, launch events, private bookings, and the 100-attendee Open Days!
Comfortably fitting ten 6’ tables there’s not much we cannot host, barring the perennially popular Clash of Kings.
So what’s coming up?
We have created a pdf guide, showing a busy year through to December. And there will be more to come as we’ve held back on announcing certain events until later this year!
Later this week we will be discussing the Spring Open Day and Clubs. Today we will give you a brief insight into some terrific events that are on sale now…
