Last year was a trip to adepticon. This year saw me heading to Salute. For those who do not know Salut is the main trade event for most of the UK based wargames companies. I was at salute before with the Dublin Games Guild and had blast. I still have found memories of playing War on Terror into the wee hours, of browsing the bring and buy while checking all the new releases and different products from the UK manufacturers. I really going to shows and getting the opportunity to see the figures and games in the flesh and also to get exposure to games outside of my comfort zone. This year I tied the trip in with a visit to see the bro, now based in London, so I would have a cover story for the non gaming people.
