Well, I hope you've enjoyed all the pics. I don't think I missed any games (other than those in trade stands) and I'm pretty sure I got the organisers right.


  1. Good God woman, you should have been a photo journalist. An interesting set of games. Escape from Brexit is very appropriate

  2. I'm sure you are exhausted after that marathon posting event. It was nice meeting you.

  3. Great job in catching all of the games; the most comprehensive set of pictures that I have seen. I missed so many. I completely missed Dan Mersey's board game.

  4. I am pleased you got to see all those games, I bet your blog is the only one to get everyone! Well done!

  5. Thanks for three excellent posts and all the work that went into them.

  6. Almost as good as being there oneself! But less noisy I assume.

  7. Thanks for visit Tamsin!
    Never been there... We must go!
    May be next year!
    Very interestering to compare Salute report from differente visitor... everyone have his onw point of view!
    A question... Is the yellow bus with ...REXIT write on is living Englancd by the ferry?
    Ok We =>

  8. @ Martin C - thanks! :)

    @ Khusru - it was quite knackering getting pics of all the games before the bloggers meetup. Nice to meet you too :)

    @ Friends of General Haig - thanks! Most years I manage to miss games, but this year I went round with floorplan in hand and set myself the task of taking pics before I could do anything else. It wasn't easy :)

    @ Herkybird - cheers! that may well be the case - I haven't seen any with pics of all the games :)

    @ Legatus - thanks! :)

    @ Norm - cheers! :)

    @ Aquahog - thanks! It was (as always) very noisy! :)

    @ Brendon - you're welcome! :)

    @ L'Empereur - merci! It's worth visiting at least once. As for the Brexit bus, it looks that way :)

  9. A very enjoyable part 3 of the games. Thanks mate

  10. "Random Platypus Forum" is the best club name ever.
    thanks for these photos, Tamsin. Great to see the same games from different POVs. There were some real crackers there. I hope to get over the ocean to Salute one year.

  11. Thanks a lot, just like a virtual tour for those of us that did not get to visit this time. Great work! I have only been there once, many years ago, as I recall it was very crowded and busy, but also very athmospheric (certainly for us poor continentals, who are not exactly spoiled for choice- the excellent Crisis in Antwerp excepted). Maybe next year, your inspiring and vey well-organized report series certainly has whetted the appetite! :-).

  12. Tamsin, great photos. The Burrows and Badgers was also (I believe) a random platypus game.

  13. Thanks for the pics Wargaming Girl. I love game pics from conventions, which we don't have any of in the Chuhuahuan desert.

  14. A pic for every game - wow, that's a bonkers amount of work. Thanks for this Tamsin, what a great photojournal of the day.
