Here for Games Con. A free inclusive charity games convention

You are all invited to Here for Games Con, a free inclusive charity games convention raising money for Herefordshire Mind. This is Herefordshire Board Gamer’s 9th Annual event, now with a new name!

12th to 14th May 2023 in Hereford and online in early May. Join us for over 30 hours of free gaming!

New and experienced gamers alike will have plenty to do with a large games library, friendly games teachers, giant games, family zone, bring and buy, play to win, Role Play Games, painting zone, Blood on the Clock Tower, raffles, special guests and more!

Our giant games are a huge hit for gamers big and small…be the monster in Terror in Meeple city, the penguin in Hey that’s my Fish or the dragon in Tsuro. Our giant games put you in the centre of the action and are made more exciting for it!

Supporting our in person activities we have launched a new online convention, Here for Games CONline.  We fell in love with how accessible online is during the pandemic, meeting and connecting with people around the world. We believe we need more of that, not everyone can travel to conventions so thanks to the wonder of the internet we’ll appear in their homes!

We’d love volunteers, RPG GMs and raffle prizes.  Please get in touch.
