LongPack Games at Gencon 50

As we all know, Gencon 50 is only a month away from us!

We at LongPack Games are super excited for this year’s edition of Gencon, as we will be running two booths this year: booth number 2598 in the main hall as well as a booth in the First Exposure Hall. Therefore, we hope to receive all of you at either one of our booths, or meet you somewhere else in the convention.

If you haven’t set up any meeting with us yet, please get in touch via info@longpackgames.com or the contact form on our website.

See you in Indianapolis!

LongPack Games at UKGE and Origins

LongPack Games is excited to be attending the upcoming UK Games Expo and Origins Game Fair, where we will be running a booth at both conventions.

UK Games Expo | 2-4 June | Birmingham, United Kingdom | Booth H20
Origins Game Fair | 14-18 June | Columbus, Ohio | Booth 638

We have a lot of exciting new materials and samples to show everyone, such as the large amount of miniatures that we’re bringing along. Because who doesn’t love miniatures?

Besides that we’ve worked around the clock to get our new sample boxes ready for everyone to come pick up and take home, filled to the rim with samples of each component you might be looking to get manufactured with us.

We therefore invite everyone to set up a meeting with us at either convention!

Please get in touch with us with your preferred time and date and we’ll get back to you promptly to confirm it.

LongPack Games at KhanKon 2017

The past weekend the LongPack Games team packed up our games and left Shanghai to head up to Beijing, where the yearly returning KhanKon 2017 was being held!

KhanKon is an event that since it started has steadily been growing every year, attracting card and board game fans from all over the country to come down to Beijing and join in a 24/7 non stop gaming fest. At LongPack Games we feel very strongly about encouraging and helping develop the local Chinese gaming scene, so we brought over all our favorite games and got to introduce them to and enjoy them with everyone at the convention.

We had a great time and can’t wait for next year!
