Gamescom Germany

Jump to last reply

My grandson would like to go to gamescom in Cologne, Germany next August. We live in the United States, but I have taken him to Europe in the past and am willing to do so for this convention.

The exhibition has a colored wristband system that allows limited access to game booths depending on your age. He will be 15 years old, so is in the 12-15 year old category.

I'd like to know how limiting this is, from anyone that has attended gamescom in the past. The next age category begins at 16 years.

Will we be able to do enough at the exhibition for a few days, to make this a worthwhile trip? I'll plan other activities also, but since this is the major reason for the trip, I need to know how limiting the age requirement is.

What is your opinion of this exhibition over all, and do you have any tips or recommendations for attending it?

Thanks so much.
Grandma Lorrie!
