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.

  • from what I can tell, these guys seem to have the best prices for boardgames and if you order before P&P, they will bring your order along so you save on postage!

Bring and buy/sell table available – Great bargains to be had!!!
