Plus many other board and card games and some freeform live roleplay.

 

There are three game sessions each day. Sessions run 9am - 1pm, 2pm - 6pm and 7:30 - 11:30pm. You will need to buy a game ticket from the admin desk for each session you play in. Tickets cost £3 each.

 

We have had people asking whether it is ok for them to arrange games at Con-tingency that are just for their friends or people they only get to play with at cons - well the answer is we couldn't stop you even if we wanted to so of course you can. We would still ask you to collect tickets from your players as that is the convention's main source of income and where we generate the charity donations. We would also encourage you to mix it up a bit and have at least some of your games open to anyone as that makes for a better 'con experience' for everyone. We think the best option is to arrive early so you can catch up with friends and play those games informally before everything starts on Wednesday but it's up to you guys. You're the people who will make this work.

 

We will have a library of board and card games that you can play at any time, there is no ticket needed for board or card games,

 

Details of how to offer and sign up for games are in the code of conduct. If there are particular games you would like to play you can ask about it on the facebook group where you will usually find some others who share the interest
