damn it … we need to know this.
Poor squats are ignored by everyone.

It is good to see the UK getting in some multi-day conventions for gaming. Multi-day cons are a staple here in the States, but it seems like the UK has more single day events. However, we don’t have the proliferation of gaming clubs, so cons are sometimes the only place we can get in some less common games.
