Hi All,

The next Tokyo Game Market is just around the corner. So if you are interested please come check out the games. It's a buyers paradise Plus there are a lot of nice rare games to find and play.

I've put all the details in this post.
Tokyo Game Market information

It'll be on Nov 4th, from 10:00-17:00 but I recommend going at least 1 hr early.

So come one, come all!!!!! You'll get to met some famous game designers, and play some awesome games I was trying to get my game ready for the game market, but next time If you like board games and you're in town, definitely do not miss this event. It's like Essen in 1 day

I am planning to be there as I'll arrive on the 3rd. I've never been to these event before, is it better to order (tickets/games) ahead of time? What are hot games that will be there? (definitely looking for Japanese games, or with English if possible.) Anything else to watch for?

It's best to order tickets in advance but it's okay if you don't, it seems.

As for games, do check out Mandy's awesome geeklist for this season's game market!

Are there long line ups if we don't buy tickets in advance/show up really early? I have just sent a email to One Draw to pre-order their game, but I'm hoping to also visit Kanai Seiji and Okazu Brand booths, and check out other things that catches my eye.

So far I've only found pre-ordering games with One Draw. Do others also offer that, or do I just send them a email and ask?

If there's pre-ordering available it'll be listed in the Game Market entries. Otherwise there's no pre-ordering available Most will have enough copies, so you don't have to worry. But if you arrive around 3-5pm then...maybe some of the hot games will be sold out.

It's better to look for a hotel around Shinbashi area. You can go directly to the venue by Yurikamome from there.

If you don't mind capsule hotel, how about this?

Hi, Thomas!
Please enjoy yourself at Game Market.

The cheapest way to stay is, maybe, staying in a net cafe.
There's a shower, and you can sleep in a soft chair.
But it shall be small for you...
Othewise, you should better book a near hotel.

And here are details and pictures of new games.
Please check them.

I'll be there, but won't arrive until like 12 o'clock or something. I land on the 4th, so I'll be a bit jet-lagged, but hey…

If you see a thin, exceedingly tall gaijin with short dark hair and big black glasses, do say hello! That just might be me.

Don't worry, I'll say Hi to all the gaijins. I might say Hi twice hehe, as I have a memory like a sieve.
