ManorCon Open (July 21-24)
ManorCon is an open tournament July 21 – 24 in Leicester, United Kingdom. More details can be found on their Facebook page.
ManorCon will be back in at Leicester University in 2023! Online booking is available at http://manorcon.org.uk/book.htm. For 2023, events are at Stamford House. Accommodation will be in the nearby halls of residence. As ever, single accommodation are available at the convention. This year, there is a choice of en-suite or standard rooms. Standard rooms are in Lasdun. A limited number of the en-suite rooms will be in Bowder Court. Others will be further away in John Foster. You are therefore recommended to book early to guarantee a room, and ensure that you have a shorter walk back to your room.
The rooms will cost £55 per night for en-suite rooms and £41 for standard rooms. The cost is £4 per night extra if you don’t book in advance, and there may be a limited choice between en-suite and standard rooms. For those people who want twin accommodation, we recommend The Regency Hotel, which is just under a mile from the convention.
ManorCon will run from Friday lunchtime to Monday lunchtime. It will hopefully once again feature the Second Hand Game Sale on Friday and Saturday, the Pop Quiz on Saturday evening, as
well as more games than you can shake a stick at. We are looking for a volunteer to run this year’s Treasure Hunt. If you are interested in taking this on, please contact us using one of the options below. You can download a booking form (and find lots of other ManorCon information) on the ManorCon website, www.manorcon.org.uk. Please note the booking deadline – 18th June 2023.

If you’ve never been to ManorCon before and are wondering what it’s all about, ManorCon is the largest board games convention in the UK. It’s held annually in July in one of the halls of residence
of Leicester University. Gamers come along for a weekend of intensive board gaming, some entering tournaments, many simply playing socially. If you’ve never been before, why not try it? The aim of ManorCon is to play games and have fun, and our aim is to help you to succeed in doing both! Whether you’re looking to spend a whole day playing one game of Civilization, or to play a
wide range of shorter games such as Agricola, Brass: Birmingham, Dominion, Power Grid, Stone Age, Ticket to Ride, Underwater Cities, Villagers, and many more, ManorCon is the place to be.
Time to try out those new games purchased during lockdown, perhaps Tapestry, Azul or Splendor. If you’ve never heard of any of these games, but are interested in playing games which reward good play without turning into the brain-ache of chess, with a large group of similarly interested people, then why not come along and find out what its all about?
