For its fifth edition, the Game and Toy Show had the exclusive presence of three Pokémon characters built from Mega Construx blocks: (left to right) Squirtle, Blastoise and Wartortle.

Board games, video games, blocks, escape-room games, figurines, memorabilia and everything in between was on display at the Centre de Foires over the weekend. On Nov. 16 and 17, the Game and Toy Show was packed. Ten thousand people of all ages came last weekend to try out all sorts of games, most of which were technology-free.
