Baycon is a fantastic convention totally focused on gaming space, spread across two convention halls. Hotel rooms usually get booked a year (or more!) in advance, but you can attend any day as a guest for a small fee (Usually £5 a day, or £15 for the whole event). The Con has been happening for more than 30 years, and the well-established player base bring hundreds of games to play. Because the player base is so well established very little advertising is done, but new players have always been welcome.
The Con is starting earlier and earlier each year and there will always be players around from Wednesday night in the Bar. Sign-up sheets are posted for longer games and there are awards and prizes announced around 3pm on Sunday.
My favorite gaming event, Baycon’s no-frills gaming space + friendly playerbase format are definitely a huge part of the inspiration for Full Board Gaming Events.
Location: The Exeter Court Hotel, Kennford, Exeter. EX6 7UX.
Dates: Wednesday to Sunday immediately after Easter Monday.
