Get the November con in your diary

Oops… we’ve been a bit slack here at LoBsterCon HQ – our biggest and busiest con yet took it out of us a bit, and I clean forgot to write up a post event post! The tl;dr is ‘thanks everyone for an amazing four days of gaming’. It truly was epic.

The Dutch Auction

If you have any snaps from the weekend you’d be happy for us to have and use in our promotions then please feel free to drop them in a folder here (if you label them with your name we can credit you when we post!)

There were a few items of lost property, as always, and if you’ve got something that isn;t yours or dont have something that should be, let us know and we’ll try and reunite them at the next event.

Which brings me to… LoBsterCon XVIII! Details are scant, but it’s the usual deal. Tickets will go on sale in early September, but keep checking back on the event page for more details, and if you want to be notified when booking opens, sign up here.

Last chance for raffle tickets!

We’re excited for next weekend! And if you haven’t yet bought your ticket, you have until midnight tonight to grab a weekend ticket with raffle entry before we make the final order. There are some great games in the bag already so don’t miss out!

Tickets for day and weekend passes will still be available to purchase on the door, but without a raffle entry. See you in Eastbourne!

Competitions and compilations

LoBsterCon XVII tickets are selling well, but we still have spaces so don’t miss out, pick yours up today!

If you’re already sorted, don’t miss our competitions – a dexterity 4×4 on Sunday morning and a croquet tournament at the local club on Saturday! If you want to take part in the croquet you’ll need an extra ticket to cover costs – pick one up at the shop.

We want your pictures

As we move away from Meetup we want to showcase all the fun of LoBsterCons past on our new home. We’d love to see any images you took so if you are feeling charitable, please share them here in the relevant folders (with your name if you’d like a credit). The world deserves to know how much fun we have 😀

Full hotel already!

Well, that was fast! Possibly our quickest sart yet. Just 4 days after opening registations and the hotel is fully booked!

No need to worry if you didn’t grab a spot though, because you can still join us! We are still selling Weekend tickets on the event page, and if you use this link to book a nearby hotel, we’ll earn a little commission to put towards the infamous raffle on Saturday night!

Book a nearby hotel

Sharing rooms

Many of you are travelling solo and staying in Twin rooms at the hotel. This is fine, but the single supplement may have to increase due to fewer spaces being taken, so if you’re in a Twin and willing to share with another LoBster to cut down the costs – or you’re looking to share but didn’t manage to book in time – please get in touch with us and we’ll put one and one together.

LoBsterCon’s brave new world

Hey LoBsters.

We’re now coming up to our 17th (!) gaming weekend by the sea, and in a spirit of maturity we decided it was time to break free from meetup and go our own way.

All tickets will now be sold on this site, giving us greater freedom in how we ensure the weekend is as fun as it can be (including a wider selection of raffle prizes).

LoBsterCon continues to grow and we’re excited by that, but we still hold our strong ties with London on Board. There is, however, space to grow beyond LoB and the current organising team (Tom, Alex, Ronan and Chris) are exploring ideas to promote the weekend outside of the club, while still keen to make sure LoBsters get first dibs and remain our core attendees.

We hope you enjoy the new site, and look forward to many more LoBsterCons to come!
