GTS 2012 - Got Game?

Got Game? Well, almost everyone at GTS 2012 sure seemed to! With plenty of exhibits and a generous diversity of content alone, GTS 2012 reminded everyone what gamePlay™ is all about. There were a few exhibitors that really pulled the stops out in WOW!factor™ while others just continued doing what they do best; making people laugh and smile.

This article has been designed to give you a brief glimpse of what they missed for some and a reflection for others of the unique experience at GTS 2012.

This year at GTS it was all too clear that the show is continuing to evolve and improve in meeting the demands not just of the exhibitors but the retailers/buyers attending as well.  In the images below and the other content to follow, be prepared to discover an experience in gamePlay™ that is sure to tickle your funny bone and capture your attention.

  It Just Keeps Getting Better!

This year's GTS was yet another successful show according to the feedback we received from many of the attendees and exhibitors alike.  It just keeps getting better with a well laid out floor plan and diverse variety of content for buyers to consider.  If this wasn't enough, there was the various info sessions where retailers gained knowedge to help them get a better edge on securing more sales.

As The Toy Man® progressed across the show floor, there was never a moment of boredom.  There were so many creative new games, accessories, and so much more to gaze upon. 

Got Game?  Well, as you can see in the images, EVERYBODY was engaged in active gamePlay™ or defining for others what their products were all about.

Square Shooters, one of the many new kids on the block at GTS 2012, was busy as ever with attendees who just had to learn more about the game. Simply irresistable!

There was also the more seasoned group of game companies who were drawing plenty of attention as usual.

Altogether as far as the show floor portion of GTS 2012, it was an experience that was not only enjoyable, but it was one in which people were able to interact and learn about so many new concepts in gaming.  The show floor was a vital element of the mix that contributed to even further evolution and improvement for next year's GTS.

  Game Night Feature

Now this is where the fun really begins!...

Much as the show floor was so busy, so was the entire room for "Game Night." Unlike last year where there were a number of tables that had little to no participants, nearly every last table at this year's game night was busy with plenty of particpants, eager to jump into the gamePlay™.

There was a vast variety of games to select from to jump in and play to your heart's content that night.  Talk about excitement!  That was something that was far from lacking in this event!
