A founding father of the hobby games industry.

We are delighted to announce that Ian Livinsgtone, a UK Games Expo Hall of Fame Inductee will be our guest this year and will be giving a special seminar entitled Games Workshop to Fighting Fantasy to Lara Croft to his Top 10 board games.

Ian co-founded iconic games company Games Workshop with Steve Jackson in 1975, launching Dungeons & Dragons in Europe.

In 1982, he co-authored The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, again with Steve Jackson, the first interactive gamebook in the Fighting Fantasy series which has sold almost 20 million copies worldwide.

He wrote 15 of the titles, including City of Thieves, Forest of Doom and Deathtrap Dungeon.

Celebrating 35 years of Fighting Fantasy, he has written a new book, The Port of Peril, which will be published by Scholastic in August.

He has been awarded a BAFTA Special Award, and was awarded a CBE in the 2013 New Year Honours list.

Find him on Stand F11 At 2pm on Friday 2nd June and Saturday 3rd June and at other times. Ian will be signing copies of his books or any Fighting Fantasy books and other works you might want to bring along. Or just go along and meet him.

At 6pm on Friday 2nd June in the Toute Suite, just outside Hall 1 he is also giving a talk on his history in the games industry from Games Workshop to Fighting Fantasy to Lara Croft, and will also reveal his Top 10 board games of all time.
