GBCon IX - Winter 2019 - A Full Day of Gaming
GBCon is back at Lopping Hall in Loughton, Essex between 10am and 10pm on Saturday 2nd February, 2019. What is GBCON? GBCON is an open tabletop gaming day held once every quarter in Loughton, Essex, UK. Put together by a group of local friends to share this great hobby with both new and seasoned gamers alike. Attendees are welcome to bring their own games or to join one of the spotlight games being facilitated by the GBCON volunteers. First off there's loads of open gaming space, it's a big hall and we love to fill it with happy gamers and our useful 'Player's Wanted' signs can draw them in. We also have a small but fully functioning bring & buy table for buying, selling or trading any of those unwanted games. So whether you're coming as a group of friends or on your own there is a place at a table for you. What sort of games? Anything and everything tabletop from board games, card games and RPGs. Our spotlight games are carefully selected to cater for a range of experiences from simple gateway games through to heavy strategy. In between all that you'll find any number of quick fillers and raucous party games to join. Who can come? Anyone, our only caveat is over 16s. There's a couple of reasons for this, primarily because there is alcohol at the venue but also because GBCON is an opportunity for a day away from the kids. We love them, we're mum's and dad's ourselves but we all need a break sometimes. How much? Advance tickets can purchased for £8 (details coming soon). It's £10 on the door on the day. Note that £1 from every ticket goes to charity. For more info check out our Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/gbcon/ Or join our guild on BGG: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/3152

    What we're about

    GBCon is a quarterly dedicated day of board gaming held in Loughton, Essex.

    Our mission is to run gaming days where everyone is welcome, has a good time, makes new friends, and where everyone gets to play a tonne of new and not-so-new games.

    GBCon days run between 10am and 10pm one Saturday in every quarter. Tickets are £10 for the day and can be paid on the door or purchased online prior to the event. We are a non-profit group and the money we collect goes towards venue hire and some nice treats to be enjoyed throughout the day. During the event our friendly hosts will help to guide you through a day of gaming and ensure that you get as much enjoyment out of your time with us as possible.

    The games are many and varied but you'll find no Monopoly or Backgammon here. At GBCon we provide a plethora of games taken from the modern day gaming renaissance.

    We look forward to enjoying some games, many laughs, and maybe a tipple or two with you.
