AireCon 2017

Despite my rantings here for over a year (congratulations on your tolerance), I have never had the joy of attending a board games convention. Well, all of this looks like it is coming to an end, as over the weekend of 10th – 12th March 2017, I should be attending the third iteration of AireCon at the Harrogate International Centre.

I’m very excited to do so and seeing what delights will be on offer. AireCon are already promising a library of over 350 games courtesy of Travelling Man with which to whet you gaming appetite. They are also putting on a gaming team tournament over the course of Saturday 11th March 2017 during which eight teams of four gamers will battle for supremacy (and a trophy) over a series of classic tabletop games (finishing with a Pandemic finale).

In addition there will be a bring and buy sale (and if you know me, I love a good rummage for a bargain), as well as several games producers showing you their new shiny. Medusa Games, Mantic, Hall Or Nothing and Inside The Box are just some of the companies attending

They are also promising podcast panels featuring several well known broadcasters including Polyhedron Colider, Breacher 18, the Broken Meeple, Touican Play that Game and Yog-Sothoth. Mike B from Who Dare Rolls is also making the trip up North, so hopefully he can get on board with that as well.

So – a chance to meet me and a weekend of games. Sounds like a bargain to me, right? Hopefully I shall see you all there …static1-squarespace-com
