Why come to a Convention?

People come to a Convention (or con) for a million and one reasons. Some of them come to see what this roleplaying thing is all about. Others play with their friends at home, but want to see what other games are out there. Some folks are con butterflies and come for the chance to play and socialise with the people they met at the last con. You should come! Why?

Well, if you've never been to a con before, then Unicon is perfect for you - cosy, cheap and delicious. We present a fine selection of games with friendly GMs and organisers - not just roleplaying but also miniature war gaming, and the relaxed and casual Baron Munchausen. Its easy to get into the swing of things without the press of the crowd that you might find at a larger convention.

If you're an established gamer, then you get to play in freeforms, or try out new systems that you might not have had a chance to see. If you're into minatures or board games, it can be hard to find opponents (and time!) - a convention provides a meeting place for plenty of fellow enthusiasts.

We encourage you to run a new game at Unicon, especially anything that pushes the envelope a little (or a lot – new dimensions are fun to explore!).

But simply put, people come to cons to have fun.

Ok, so you're interested?


Then keep an eye out for the event list and once it's up, see what games catch your eye. If you have other friends that want to come along too, its worth organising into teams so you don't have to mix and match on the day. Once you know what you want to play, head for the registration information and sign on up online.
