What else is happening?
- Game Designers Area
- Try something so new it isn’t even finished yet! You may be interested in getting feedback on games you’re working on or comparing ideas with others of like mind. Feedback – our game designers can’t get enough of it!
- Kids Session Sunday 10am – 2pm
- Wellycon’s family-friendly reputation continues with the very popular kids session; a huge selection of games that they can really get into while you get your game on! Join the kids, and perhaps you’ll discover a new family favourite. The more the merrier (note: kids under 13 must be accompanied by an adult to attend Wellycon).
- Treasure Hunt – 2.15pm
- There are various posters, printous and cutouts around the venue – see if you can find the clues to fill in your treasure sheet and claim your prize at the front desk!
- Swap table
- Selling and Buying Games
- Download and print off an auction form (A4 or A5), fill it in and sellotape it to your game and leave them on the sale table until the end time you chose (I suggest 5pm), and then settle up with the highest bidder. You can put a “buy now” price on your game if you wish.
- Come and make a bid on something you like the look of then go and play a game. Remember to check back later in the day to see if someone has over bid you and you need to put a new bid on. Sales are for cash.
- Game Design Tourney
- Last year’s experiment with the Game Design Tournament was really popular, so Richard Durham (a game designer himself) is going to run it again. This year places are limited (24), so sign up when you register – first in first served.
- Twilight Imperium
- If you’d like to have a go at the BIG game, sign up on here.
