Board Game Conventions
Pasteboard & Plastic
This is a great local Con that try to attend.
Organised by Dick Ruck, this is a gaming day held 3 times per year where we can get together for a bunch of friendly gaming. The folks who come along tend to be from Mid-Sussex and the Eastbourne-Brighton-Worthing coastal areas. My experiences so far have been really fun and I have been introduced to some great people and games including Dominion and Steam.
