    Hi,

    I am pondering wether to take the plunge and try this show as it always catches my eye.

    It seems to be a pretty big affair with a lot of traders and a good venue.

    However its a fair trek and expense from the London/Essex border so I would appreciate thoughts and views of any one who has made the trip from the UK.

    With SELWG at crystal palace and Fiasco in Leeds during October and then Crisis early November its tough to decide which to head for!

    Any thoughts?

    I’m a Belgian, so I’m biased. I’ve run games at CRISIS for the past 20 years.

    CRISIS is a great show. Lots of traders. All the UK usual suspects, but also non-UK ones, which might be a refreshing view for UK visitors. Full list here: http://tsoa.be/crisis_traders.html , the prelim lay-out map is also available. As for games: plenty of them. Many EU clubs see this as the highlight of the year, so the very best games are usually presented at CRISIS. Excellent bar (Belgian beer!) and catering.

    Some say CRISIS is the biggest mainland EU show, and in size only second to Salute. But it’s hard to back that up with numbers 🙂

    W.r.t. trip from the UK: a bit difficult for me to judge that, but I see UK friends there every year.

    Here are some video impressions from past editions:



    … and many more to be found on youtube …

    Thanks for that video Phil.

    Looks somewhat like Salute!

    I will seriously consider going next year.
