A family trip to a video game expo is a great way to find out more about games together. Sharing a hobby like this in not only exciting for young players but offers parents a chance to investigate the breadth of games on offer.

This year we have a big stand at EGX, hosted with The VSC Rating Board. Come and meet the VSC and AskAboutGames teams, play some games and enter some competitions to test your PEGI age rating skills.

There will also be a chance to get on camera to have your say about which games have worked best for your family.
