About Game Core
Game Core is not a new show but is really a show in its 5th year. Game Core has evolved from Too Many Games. Too Many Games was a show that ran 5 times in the Reading, PA area after it evolved from East Coast Gaming Expo an event that ran for 3 years in Reading, PA.
Game Core is just that, the Core of gaming. While we see the differences between people who play video games, Arcade games, role-playing games, miniature games, and others, we don't see it as a reason to keep them all separate. Game Core gathers the best of all types of gaming, and provides you the vendors, contests, tournaments, guests, and players you're looking to find. Whether you're hoping to see The Angry Video Game Nerd, or a Guitar Hero Tournament, or a Magic The Gathering Tournament, you can find them at Game Core.
