MidCon 2013  

8th 10th November, 2013

Hallmark Hotel, Derby, DE1 2SQ, UK

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. .
