MidCon XXXIV takes place in a
comfortable hotel in the city of Derby from Friday morning (11am) to
Sunday evening (6pm).
The convention features:
the opportunity to
play board games with like-minded adults, including all the hot games
from this year's Essen games fair
the MidCon music and general knowledge quiz for
teams of four on Saturday evening
the chance to buy
even more board games from Spirit Games
the chance to sell your surplus games on the Bring & Buy stall on
the Saturday afternoon or pick up a bargain
MidCon is primarily about playing games and meeting people.
You can play any of the number of games people bring along
with them, including the hot new games from the Spiel
games fair in Essen, which takes place a few weeks before MidCon.
Popular games include 18XX, Puerto Rico, Agricola, Dominion,
Diplomacy and Power Grid, but
you are welcome to bring along your own favourite games –
you will almost certainly find some people willing to play at
least one of them.
Registration costs cover the costs of hiring the convention rooms, sending out
flyers, maintaining this web site and so on. .
MidCon costs £20 for the whole weekend (day rates are £10 for
Friday or Sunday and £15 for Saturday)
