Depends how you define bigger. Comikaze had 45,000 geeks last year, Comic-Con 130,000. So no – that is not the answer I was looking for.

And E3 was a mere 48,200

What’s PAX at?

The one in my pants?

Oh… and FanExpo is projecting 100,000 so it’s not that, but it’s close.

Internationale Spieltage SPIEL’13
149,000 geeks visiting 827 exhibitors over 47,000 square meters in Essen, Germany.
And the thing that draws all these geeks – boardgames.
Oct 24-27. Got my flights booked. Booked my hotel last year. I am officially psyched!

Monkey Magic! Take pictures and share them! If you’d like, write up some coverage of the event for us! That sounds awesome!

OK, that *is* pretty cool, but it’s not the same as Comicon, from what I’m reading about it, there is a much narrower scope, and I would say that it’s not specifically geeks either, although it certainly has a big geek contingent… Anway, it *does* sound cool, and it’s certainly something I’d love to see more of. Looking forward to whatever you share with us!

If you guys are interested I would happily write it up as a feature for the site.

I’m certainly interested in reading something like that, Jonathan’s the guy to speak with.

Send me an email, MM, and we can figure it all out: firstname.lastname@example.org

Oh, I’ve figured out what is bigger than Comicon… Yer mum! … I kid! I kid.

Why do you have to go and ruin it, Satori? My mom is not that big. She’s like a Comikaze Expo.

Looks like a good doc and trailer gives a bit of a feel of modern boardgames. Not seen it though as when you add in shipping to the UK its just too expensive.
