Due to Covid we are unable to run GridCon 2 in November 2020 as originally planned. Instead we will be hosting Virtual GridCon 2 on the 27th to 29th November 2020.
We hope that everyone who attends Virtual GridCon 2 will enjoy playing games throughout the convention, despite the fact that we are unable to do so in person.
The convention will be run via a discord server, which will enable attendees to arrange games, meet up at ‘tables’ and even have a chat in the virtual bar area. We ask everyone who attends Virtual GridCon to abide by the same rules as at GridCon itself, and to show people the same respect and courtesies that they would as if they were at the live convention.
What is happening at Virtual GridCon?
In addition to open gaming, we are organising a number of features to make Virtual GridCon a fun event for all.
The games organiser helps people to arrange games in advance of the convention. It is not a requirement for games to be organised in advance, but we know that some people feel more comfortable to have a plan in place, and if you’re one of those people then the games organiser is for you.
Bring and Buy
We will have a Bring and Buy system for people to arrange independent sales of games. Whilst we are happy to offer this to GridCon attendees, this is for use at your own discretion and we will not be monitoring the bring and buy, nor do we take any responsibility for the sales that are arranged using it.
Gaming Rules! Live Streams
There will be a number of live streams by Paul Grogan of Gaming Rules!, featuring some new releases along with some older classics.
GamesLore will feature as the virtual retailer at the event.
