Let’s start with the basics. SteamCon UK begins 17 November, 2017 and runs through to the 19th—*gasp* that’s only nineteen weeks away—and will be hosted at Victoria Warehouse, Manchester. Each day will provide a slew of events that range from seminars to competitions, along with your last chance to influence this year’s version of the Butcher’s Civil War (more on that in a later blog post!!) One of the most exciting parts of this SteamCon will be that it will give attendees the chance to be the first to experience some extremely exciting new projects from Steamforged Games which we can’t talk about in detail…just yet.
It all starts Friday morning with the Last Chance Qualifier! Will you be able to make the cut for the Guild Ball World Championship at SteamCon USA? Once the important business of qualifying is over you can chill out at the 2nd SteamyCon Mixer hosted by none other than Mat Hart! We’ll also have various alternate formats running throughout the day in case you fancy a break from competitive play and just want to catch up with old friends.
We Kick Off (HA!) Saturday morning with the Homelands Cup! Can you lead glorious Mald to victory, or will you favour the bloodthirsty Raedlanders? Not feeling the alternate format? Or if you fancy it you can join in with the British Championship Qualifier for 2018, win this event and you’ll earn free entry into 2018’s British Championship and a hotel room for the weekend as well! Then we round the day off with the Key Note and Staff Q&A. Can’t make the event? Then be sure to join us on Twitch.tv/Steamforged for a livestream of the top table games and Key Note.
But Wait...There's More!
That’s a lot of Guild Ball, and there will be even more on Sunday! Guild Ball not for you? Don't panic we've got you covered.
