This year’s edition of IGX will take place at the World Trade Centre in Mumbai from October 15 to 16.

The first year of IGX was an honest representation of the consumer gaming scene in the country, unlike India’s many Comic Con events, which have over the years devolved into a crowded bunch of known stores selling merchandise and little else. How it evolves in its second year will be interesting to see.
