Lucca Games

Lucca Games is the  foremost Italian Show dedicated to Games (role games, board games, collectable card games and video-games) and Fantasy Imagery. Set up in 1993, in the course of just a few years the exhibition has proved to be an inspired idea: a policy decision that has succeeded in highlighting the close links between the world of games and the world of cartooning, bringing together new and old trends in culture and entertainment, from the traditional comic to computer graphics, fantasy sagas to simulated battles, illustration to board games, and narrative to game design.

Over the years, Lucca Games has become the most important games exhibition in Italy and is one of the most important internationally. Why? Because it was conceived as something more than an ordinary games fair, Terry Brooksseeking to Fuori padiglioneunite the spirit and enjoyment that enlivens such events with the atmosphere of a great festival, a space for games and the imagination where visitors can play the part of the hero or meet a famous author or have the opportunity to preview and try out the next big releases.


Acting as guides on this trip through the games medium are the cleverest game writers in Italy and the most successful publishers who come to the fair each year and mingle with young people from fandoms and clubs. Demonstration tables where everyone can try out the games under the guidance of expert animators; meetings and competitions; seminars on genre fiction; exhibitions of work by great fantasy illustrators and a Performance Area for Live Painting; a Meeting Room for quizzing artists, game designer and writers.

This year the three Guest of Honor are going to be:


Terry Brook Writer Guest of Honor  Ospiti

James Gurney, Artist Guest of Honor

Steve Perrin, Roleplay Game Designer Guest of Honor and many more as Kieran Yanner, Bruno Faidutti, Joe Dever....


Finally, there are the prestigious Best of Show and Lucca OMI Awards (the brand new prize for Interactive Multimedia Work), awarded to the best productions of the year. Lucca Games is all this and much more.
