UK Games Expo 2023 is one of the most anticipated events around board games and this year, the event is running from Friday, June 2 through Sunday, June 4 at NEC Birmingham, Birmingham.
The event has attracted a variety of sponsors, including Wayland Games, CATAN and Warhammer, along with Funko Games, Paizo, and others. Now, UK Games Expo is upping the stakes by offering a daily £1,000 giveaway that will be available every day of the show.
Attendees will have the opportunity to scoop up extra board games funds by simply finding one of the designated posters at the event and grabbing a selfie that they later post on the event’s Instagram page.
The posters in question are two-meter high and difficult to miss. The selfie must include the poster in the shoot. Once taken, the selfies have to be uploaded onto each participant’s own Instagram account with the hashtags #1000giveaway #ukgamesexpo and post it.
Get to the Main Stage to Claim Your Reward
Board games enthusiasts will also have to follow @ukgamesexpo on their Instagram profile as well. Every day of the event, at the Main Stage in Hall 2 at 1:30 pm, raffle tickets will be given out. Once all participants are in place, a draw will take place.
The winner will then be invited to the stage to verify their identity and photo. Then, good things happen. A special UK Games Expo personal shopper will be assigned to the winner, and they will be able to take them anywhere around the expo and shop around for games up to the designated spending limit.
Board games enthusiasts may spend the money by 6 pm on Friday and Saturday, and by 4 pm on Sunday, so make haste. The total amount need not be spent in a single day either, or board games fans can take their time as they see fit but before the deadline on Sunday.
All potential winners will need to show the selfie to verify their identity and receive the juicy prize pool. You may find out more about the event on its official website. Good luck, and enjoy UK Games Expo no matter what.
