Hello everyone,

I'm big fan of Board Games and recently found out that my neighbor country is holding big events called Tokyo Game Market.

I'm currently planning a visit to Tokyo at December so if anyone knows well about this, please advise.


1. When and where does this show hold?
Website of the show will be very helpful

2. Is there any booth which sells foreign games(English mostly)?
If any booth (either vendor or private) is going to sell games from Essen 2017, I need bigger carrier...


Thanks in advance for all answers

Hello!

1) It's gonna be hold at the Tokyo Big Sight. It is in Odaiba, the artificial 'island' of Tokyo.

More details on the website (in Japanese): http://gamemarket.jp/access/

2) Hm.... Not really. I mean you have more and more Japanese publishers who include rules in English, you'll also have the Taiwanese publishers who almost systematically including English, but you'll find mainly Japanese version of the English games or plain Japanese-only games.

But once again, the booth list is not announced yet.
It will be announced roughly once month before the event (if I remember well) at http://gamemarket.jp/boothlist/ (currently the middle tab).

FYI the event name in Japanese is ゲームマーケット 2017秋.

I'll be attending myself too. Enjoy!

Thank you!

I enjoyed Japanes games such as Dorasure.
So I think I will be fully satisfied with local games too.

애초에 질문하기 전에 FAQ 보고 있지 않겠죠.
