LoBsterCon is a bi-annual boardgaming weekend run by members of London on Board, the largest boardgaming group in the world!
Long-time LoBster Jeff started things off with a small group of friends who wanted to relax by the seaside and play games together. Soon word spread and the event became bigger and bigger, with competitions and larger hotels and lots of organisation!
In 2015 the mantle was passed to Tom, Ronan and Paul (ex-BoardGameGuru) and soon after that we moved down the seafront to The Cumberland Hotel, where we managed to arrange full use of the hotel for the group. Our weekends are held over the early May bank holiday weekend and mid-November (perfect for getting those shiny new Essen purchases played!). The current team is Tom, Alex, Ronan and Chris.
We now host around 150 gamers from LoB and beyond, with room for more. Why not join us next time?
