Unplug and Play: Tabletop Scotland Returns to Royal Highland Centre This September


Tabletop Scotland is being held at the Highland Hall, Royal Highland Centre, over three days on the 6th, 7th and 8th of September.

Tabletop Scotland is one of the UK’s premier festivals of analogue gaming, allowing visitors to unplug from technology and enjoy the best in board games, card games and roleplaying games.  With over 120 different exhibitors, gamers will be spoilt for choice when exploring the tabletop hobby at the Royal Highland Centre this September.

Thousands of seats are available to sit down and play games, alongside events for popular games and new releases.  Tabletop games are no longer reserved to those Christmas family gatherings where everyone gathered round to play the same game as last year.  Browse a diverse range of games in the Tabletop Scotland games library; available throughout the festival where attendees can truly expand their gaming horizons.

Tens of thousands of people across the UK and beyond are enjoying tabletop games every day with friends and family alike.  Whether you’re an existing hobbyist or someone completely new, you will travel the globe, play the detective, slay the dragon, search for hidden treasures, and explore new worlds all at the table.

“After spending four years at the Dewars Centre in Perth we knew the time to move to a larger venue was required, and moving the convention to the Royal Highland Centre provides us with an amazing opportunity to bring the hobby of tabletop games to more people than ever before. The UK tabletop industry continues to grow and we’re delighted to have over 120 different exhibitors showcasing their tabletop games and accessories to our attendees.

We created Tabletop Scotland to be a focal point for the hobby in Scotland, aiming to be at the heart of gaming in Scotland by bringing together those new to the hobby with those who are already involved. Each year we have attendees who have only recently discovered this hobby coming to our event and having a fantastic time, as well as those more seasoned veterans who revel in their hobby for three days. To support those new to the hobby we have a dedicated introductory area for new tabletop gamers to explore what’s available.

Tabletop games are an all ages hobby with an average of 11% of our attendees in previous years being under 16. Many of our exhibitors produce games that enable young families to enjoy playing games together, and we offer free entry to those aged 10 and under, as well as discounted rates for those in the 11 to 15 age bracket.”
