Steamforged Games are going to be hosting their first big convention, SteamCon, during November 25th-27th 2016 at the Headingley Lodge in Leeds here in the United Kingdom…

Steamforged Games CON

So what’s going to be going on?

  • SteamCon will play host to the Guild Ball World Championship Finals, with Players from all over the world competing to be the very first Guild Ball World Champion – with two last chance qualifiers at SteamCon! (The Golden Goal and the Last Man Standing)
  • Exclusive Keynote by Mat Hart & Rich Loxam unveiling unreleased products and upcoming announcements for 2017 followed by a Q&A with the entire Steamforged Games Design Team
  • Be one of the first ever to try out the full play-through of Dark Souls™ the Board Game.
  • SteamCon Limited Edition sculpts, SteamCon Big League plot cards, a loot bag for every attendee and an on-site official Steamforged Store with more exclusive swag to be revealed closer to the time…
  • 24 Hour Access to the venue for gaming throughout the weekend

…which all sounds rather awesome indeed.

But, that isn’t everything.

  • Guest painter Meg Maples will be on hand for a painting masterclass painting previously unseen models…
  • Is there a Guild that we absolutely NEED to make for Guild Ball? Convince Guild Ball creative director Mat Hart that we should make it in our ‘create-a-Guild’ seminar
  • Or perhaps better still, come and see Russ Charles sculpt a brand new model, for that Guild, right in front of your eyes!
  • Team up with your friends in the Guild Ball Team Tournament or try out some of our Disorganised Play formats like Guild Ball – Dodgeball!
  • Test your agility in painting in the ‘Flint Speed Painting Challenge’
  • Enter the Steamforged Master Painter competition for a chance to win big…more details to follow
  • Kraken’s Den: Pitch your idea for a new game to Rich and Mat, get feedback and suggestions.
  • SteamyCon Social - being Mat Hart’s idea this could be anything! But you don’t want to miss it!
  • 24-hour ‘Empire Big League’ open tables with a huge flowing campaign during SteamCon. Participate to earn favours that can be traded in for awesome loot!

All of this sounds very cool indeed and it looks like a nice location to hold the activities too.

What do you think of the idea?
