They just recently made the Catalog available to purchase, I got my copy but I can't read hiragana amazingly well. I'm going to bring it over to my Japanese game group so they can have a look at it.

I'm not 100% sure but wasn't the catalogue more a listing of the participants and where they can be found that a presentation of the games?

I find browsing the website for the event to be the best source of information: http://gamemarket.jp/boothlist/

Most publishers have information on their upcoming title/previous releases with pictures and gameplay explanations.

I need to get through it I will share my list asap!

edited: I was wrong! thanks!

I thought they weren't doing the catalogue as an entrance ticket for the autumn game market. I was told that you had to buy each days ticket separately and the day of, but they could've changed it.

You're right, the catalogue and tickets are separate purchases. I just bought the catalogue as a first time thing, just as a memory keepsake, I can't even read it.

If you guys don't have the link yet, you can buy the tickets and catalogue on Amazon.jp

Catalogue
https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B076FGJ9CR/ref=oh_aui_de...

Tickets
Day 1

Day 2
https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B076F61BV8/ref=oh_aui_de...

I've been making my way through the twitter accounts of the companies that I know regularly come or that I specifically already know have a game I want and looking for their reservation forms google doc links. So far I've reserved games from Colon Arc, Mogwai, Saashi & Saashi, EmperorS4, Big Fun, and Okazu Brand.

Are tickets available at the convention? Or must they be purchased in advanced?

What time do you usually get there? I know in Seoul the subway trains don't run at certain times, is it the same for Tokyo?

Isn't there usually a "what is on sale and what we think is worth checking out" thread? I'm drawing a blank this year though.... anyone got a link?

Quite early. The queue is long, about 200-300m if I recall correctly, but moves quickly once it opens. The only real reason you want to queue early is to get a game that might sell out soon, or you just like standing.

Thanks Charles, I appreciate the heads up. This is my first game market, so I feel a little bit like a kid on Christmas morning. Haha.

I'll be there for Saturday. I'll probably be about five feet in front of the small lady with the cute baby in a carrier.
I don't know if I'll be lining up though. My Japanese is terrible and I couldn't find many must haves.

Usually there is no need to line up. Come after the doors open and there will be plenty of places. Some games will sold out: this not as if there is already much more games to sell than you will be ever able to play in your lifetime.

If Throne and the Grail will be there, that is a good 2p game.
