UK / Ireland

Below is a complete convention listing every gaming convention in the UK and Ireland. We've done our best to list them all, but if any are missing, please submit them using our Game Con Submission Form.

For those traveling from the US to one of these conventions a couple of terms are different in British vs. American. Vendor is trader, figure(s) can be used for both miniature(s) and war game, a booth is a stall, Sat-Nav is a GPS device, and finally, we've seen Freeform used to mean both LARP and open gaming. Nothing too major, but worth noting.
