[Convention] Anyone going to Dragonmeet (2nd December 2017)

Post by Big Mac » Tue Nov 14, 2017 9:48 pm

Dragonmeet is on, in London, at the start of next month (2ndDecember 2017). We have several Piazza members who live in and around the London area. Is anyone going to this? Would anyone like to meet up?

Here are the details of the convention, from the Dragonmeet website:

Dragonmeet is one of the most vibrant tabletop gaming conventions and the largest of it's kind in London. You'll discover a day jam-packed with things for you to do. Expect new and old games to play, industry panels, book signings, an art show, bring & buy, cosplay events, lots of new traders and big demos, tournaments and of course the chance to make new friends and hang out with fellow gamers! This year we've expanded to two big halls in the Novotel Hammersmith providing lots more open gaming space, a bigger seminar room, more demo game space, more participation games and more RPG space!

​You can expect boardgames, roleplaying games and miniatures games, tournaments plus an evening of gaming including the charity auction. Explore the menu above or below to find out more about 'the UK's friendliest games convention'.
I'm actually due to be playing in AuldDragon's live-streamed Spelljammer show, at 5pm (Londonspace Mean Time) but I might be able to run around in the morning and do stuff.

RolistesPod is also trying to get people to attend the Dragonmeet #PodcastZone, so maybe one or more of us might go for that, but it might also be fun to compare notes, or for some of us to jump on a convention game together.

Great!

I'm going to have to update my D&D wishlist, for the Bring and Buy sale.

Being that it is on the other side of the pond (that is, from America) and the finances aren't strong enough yet I won't be able to make it. But I hope everyone that does go has a great time!

Woah! You delurked to say you are going to Dragonmeet? :D

A) Welcome to The Piazza! You might want to pop over to the Introduce yourself here topic, say "hi!" and tell everyone what sort of stuff you like to talk about.
B) I'll have to bail about 3pm, to get back home and get onto AuldDragon's Spelljammer show.

I should have gotten myself a hat with a nautiloid on top of it, so that people could spot me in the crowd. ;)
