Now in its eighth year, tabletop gaming event Beachhead is preparing for its biggest show ever.
Running for two days at the Bournemouth International Centre on the 10th and 11th of February 2024, Beachhead is set to welcome thousands of gamers, who’ll get the chance to check out a selection of wargames, card games, board games, RPG sessions, miniatures games, free participation games, demonstration games, tournaments, traders, cosplay, seminars and more.
Of most interest to Card Gamer readers will be the all new, dedicated Card Game Zone, where attendees will be able to learn and play games such as Disney Lorcana, Pokemon and Magic: The Gathering.
Publisher Asmodee will also be running demo games of Star Wars Unlimited, way ahead of its March launch;in related news, there’ll even be the chance to meet popular characters from the movies and TV shows in the Star Wars Zone, as charity cosplayers Joker Squad will also be in attendance.
Additionally, tabletop wargaming tournaments will also be held at Beachhead; these are a staple of the event, attracting hundreds of players to the show, even luring top teams from abroad to attend and compete.
Though many of this year’s tournaments have already sold out, competitors are being urged to get their tickets as soon as they can, if they want to take part in any games that are still available.
Tournament entry tickets can be purchased directly from the show’s organisers, Entoyment Wargaming and Hobby Centre; the purchase of a tournament ticket also includes a day ticket to the show.
Tickets for the event itself are on sale now and can be purchased from the Bournemouth International Centre Box Office. Adult tickets are £10 for one day or £15 for weekend tickets, with children under 16 being £5 for a day ticket or £7.50 for the weekend.
Event owner and organiser, as well as the owner of Entoyment Wargaming and Hobby Centre, Pete Valinski said, “We’re excited to return to the BIC and offer more than we ever have before. I love being able to bring something like this to the tabletop gaming community and offer a chance to new gamers to see how amazing this hobby is.”
