Every Britcon entry ticket again includes a £5 trader voucher and also a grab-bag lunch for each weekend day you are playing - saving you somewhere north of £15-25 in on-the-day outlay compared to many other events and venues on the UK wargaming circuit (and also meaning that "queuing for food" isn't going to eat into your gaming, shopping and socialising time at Britcon either!).
The BHGS have also secured a complete block of student accommodation in University Halls, 5 minutes walk from the venue (and next to a Weatherspoons with late night opening) which you can book along with your gaming ticket - our allocation of rooms is already 50% sold out, so if you want to take advantage of this offer make sure to book soon before we run out of rooms.
We are also working on bringing in a few more competition periods, as well hosting several groups who will be sharing our venue to stage their own weekend-long "social" gaming events this year. If you think your group or gaming community might also interested in sharing our venue for a long weekend of uninterrupted gaming please get in touch and we'll see what we can do to accommodate you.
Before Britcon of course the The BHGS Challenge will again return to the UK's biggest gaming event, UK Games Expo at the NEC in Birmingham over the weekend of 3rd & 4th June with ADLG, DBMM and Epic Armageddon rulesets all on offer this year and availabe to book on the UKGE website.
Whichever of our events you are planning on attending, we look forward to seeing you across the table later in the year.
