UKGE also inducted Daniel Steel of Esdevium Games into the UKGE Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame looks to showcase some of the best and brightest, to honour those who have had a major influence on our hobby and have led the way in our industry. We believe that Dan has quietly and without fuss had a massive impact on the growth of the hobby games industry in the
UK over the last 30 years via his company Esdevium Games. He established and grew
Esdevium Games from a small one-man business to one of the largest games distributors
in the world. During this time Esdevium has developed organised play, provided demo teams around the UK, and popped up in shops and cons and even book stores and garden centres. Its role as an industry leader in supplying hobby games to the retail sector has provided the support and the games to fuel the growth we see today.
