Gamebook Friday: Fighting Fantasy Fest 2014

In case you haven't already heard, tickets for FIGHTING FANTASY FEST 2014 - the first dedicated Fighting Fantasy convention - are on sale now. Guests of Honour Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone will be giving a talk about how Fighting Fantasy first came to be, and the event will also feature the official book launch of YOU ARE THE HERO.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the support you have already shown YOU ARE THE HERO and to say that you should in no way feel obliged to support FIGHTING FANTASY FEST as well. That said, I know that many of you responded to my initial poll regarding the running of such an event saying that you would like to be part of this momentous occasion.
Guest artists who have already confirmed include Russ Nicholson, Chris Achilleos and Tony Hough. We are also hoping to have some other very special guests attend on the day, but more on that later.
And if that wasn't enough we also have the following planned for Sunday 7 September 2014:
  • Arion Games will be running sessions of the Advanced Fighting Fantasy RPG
  • Tin Man Games and Inkle Studios will be talking about their app adaptations of Fighting Fantasy Gamebooks and Steve Jackson's Sorcery! epic
  • Trade stands
  • Book signings
  • Panels and talks
  • An exhibition of rare Fighting Fantasy memorabilia
  • A Fighting Fantasy auction
If you think this sounds like something you would like to be involved in, click this link and purchase your ticket today.
