Dragonmeet Gets Dorkier

Press Release

London 2002-09-25

Dragonmeet, London's friendliest games event, is proud to announce it will be hosting Dorkstock Europe, the one-day festival of games, activities, talks and signings focused around 'Dork Tower', the award- winning comic-book of nerd-culture delights by John Kovalic. There will be tournaments for Munchkin, Chez Geek, Apples to Apples and other games that John has worked on, auctions of rare Dorky material, and much more.

This ties in nicely with the fact that John Kovalic is the convention's 2002 guest of honour - along with Christian Moore, vice-president of RPGs and miniatures at Decipher Games, where he looks after the Lord of the Rings and Star Trek games. Needless to say, there'll be plenty of activities related to those two.

Dragonmeet will also be running the amazing Game in a Day: a team of professionals and amateurs will attempt to design and publish a complete role-playing game, from scratch, in twelve hours - and you can join in. Will it be any good? Is it even possible? Are we completely mad to try it? Whatever happens, it'll be a unique crash-course in the perils of game creation.

The convention will have the usual mix of playtest, demonstration and tournament games from roleplaying games and collectible card-games to miniatures and board-games, plus even more traders than last year (the trade hall space is already sold out), a packed programme of seminars, talks, quizzes and workshops, another charity auction stuffed with rare and extraordinary items, and much more.

Dragonmeet takes place on Saturday 30th November, at Kensington Town Hall in London. Doors open at 10am. More information and online ticket- booking are available at
