DETAILS OF DRAGONMEET 2001 REVEALED
Dragonmeet 2001, the London-based adventure games convention, will be
held on Saturday 1st December at Kensington Town Hall. It will be double
the size of last year's event. Doors open at 10am and the event closes
at 10pm. Ticket prices are UKú5 in advance (UKú3.50 concessions) or UKú6
on the day (UKú4.50 concessions).
The convention will cover all areas of adventure-gaming. Roleplaying,
board- and card-games, strategy games, collectible-card games, wargames,
miniatures and live-action games will all be represented, with
manufacturers taking booths and organising official demonstrations and
competitions. There will be a profusion of retailers selling new and
out-of print games and accessories, plus talks, panels and workshops, a
charity auction and other events still to be announced.
Dragonmeet 2000 was a major success, and got terrific feedback from
visitors and traders alike. Response was overwhelmingly positive to
everything except the lack of hot food and a bar -- problems which
should be fixed this year. Now it's proved there's a demand for games
events in central London, Dragonmeet 2001 will make use of the expertise
of its committee, who are all professionals in the UK games industry, to
create the best gaming experience possible for Londoners -- as well as
visitors from further afield.
"Dragonmeet 2000 was a great, great con. I've already made my plans to
return," said John Kovalic, the Wisconsin-based creator of 'Dork Tower'
who was the special guest at last year's show. Other guests and games-
industry figures are expected to attend from the USA: names will be
announced as soon as they're confirmed.
"December may seem a way off, but plan ahead," said James Wallis,
director of Hogshead Publishing and chair of the organising committee.
"The convention date is close to Christmas, so come to Dragonmeet on the
Saturday and do all your shopping on Sunday. Or buy all your presents at
the show and spend Sunday playing cool new games. Whatever."
Dragonmeet 2001 is organised by Gameforce Ltd, a company set up by
members of the UK games industry to run gaming events in this country.
