Gaelcon has been running for over 20 years and so many of you may be familiar with the events. There are riveting RPGs, wonderful Wargames, lovely LARPs, brilliant boardgames, crafty CCGs and terrific tournaments.
We want you to enjoy all your old favourites and the games you like to play. Though this Gaelcon we have a lot of scintillating, sparkling and even spooky special events. Friday night is packed with our Halloween party full of games, decorations, karaoke and costume competition.
Saturday will feature a Gaelcon classic, the pub quiz. It’s also the start of our long con game the Dracula Dossier. There are still a few tickets available for those who want to try to fit a whole campaign into one week.
Sunday is when we ask for you to reach into your wallets and “think of the children” at our charity auction. Then for the night owls Alt events are bringing us an interactive cinema club. This is an interactive gaming experience where the entire audience directs the action. Somewhere in all that activity you can also try to make a great escape with Unlocking Your Potential with Lauch & Ki Marketing, our escape room challenge, running throughout the weekend.
If you still have some energy left on Monday try squeezing in a demo from Catalyst games test your best “make it so” impression with Artemis: Spaceship Bridge Simulator both of which will be running at various times all weekend. Finish it all up with the closing ceremony, where the Fergal wranglers have guaranteed the ceremony will be comprehensive and quick.
Gaelcon has something for everyone even those uninterested or inexperienced in traditional gaming. This year try something old, try something new, borrow some games and you won’t be blue.
