After the joy of GenCon over in the States, it’s finally time for the UK to get a bite of the convention apple, as Nine Worlds is happening this weekend in London!

We’ll be sending down a crack team of Robots to take over attend the con, set on chatting with you and reigning triumphant over every board game going.

Screen Shot 2015-08-03 at 12.01.37FullSizeRenderMake sure to keep a keen eye out for publicity manager Penny and consultant editor Phil (both pictured), as we’ve hardwired their brains to respond to the phrase: ‘Hello, you are <enter name> and I’m plotting the overthrow of all mankind, too.’ Utter these words and they will reply with a 20% discount code for all ebooks* over at the Robot Trading Company website.

For context, the line is from our Angry Robot theme tune, which you can listen to below. WARNING: We can’t be held responsible the amount of time it takes you to stop humming it, for the thing is dangerously catchy.
