UK Games Expo 2015




XCOMWelcome to the Tinkerbot’s UK Games Expo Competition Page!

You’re here because you want to win a copy of XCOM, right?

Here’s how: On Sunday at 3pm we’ll be drawing one entry at random to win a copy of XCOM. Each person can enter the draw 6 times. You need to find one of the Tinkerbots (check out the mugshots below) say “Hey Tinkerbot!” and then:

Do one, some or all of the following to enter (each one is worth one entry):

1. Tell us your best board game joke!

It’s really that simple. Tell us a joke that’s even distantly related to board games in some way and that’ll get you an entry.

2. Tell us your favourite board game Magic Moment

A board game magic moment is a story or memory of a happy board gaming moment that makes you smile when you think back on it. Tell us your favourite for our podcast and that gets you an entry to the competition. (No extra points for making Gino cry, he’s a big softy already).

3. Tweet a photo with a Tinkerbot

You can either grab us for a Tinkerbot selfie or snap a pic from a distance without telling us. Just make sure you tweet it with the hashtag and the line “I want to win XCOM @tinkerbotgames #UKGExpo”. The line needs to be spot-on or we may miss your tweet. You can even just quote the following tweet:

4. Playtest one of our games at the Expo

We’ve got 3 games you can help us playtest at the Expo, each playtest gets you an entry to win XCOM (1 per game)

  • Tinker Tactics is a 5 min micro-game we’ll carry with us as we walk around, find us and ask for a game. If you beat one of us we’ll even give you a set of custom dice to take away with you! (until we run out, we’re not very good at our own game…)
  • Ghostel is a gateway game about ghosts that will be hitting Kickstarter this Autumn! Come play it at the Playtest UK area on Saturday or at the open gaming area on Sunday.
  • Gnolems is one of the finalists for the UK Games Expo Redesign competition. Find us at the Redesign Competition area to try out the game.
