Event description
Welcome to GAZCON, a board game event in Chester.

About this Event

GAZCON is a board gaming event in Chester, UK. It began 3 years ago. In it's first year we raised £250 for a local charity that helps the homeless, last year you helped raise over £500 for Addenbrookes Hospital. Attendees took home over £500 worth of prizes from our prize draw! All of which were generously donated by the wonderful people at Big Potato Games, Asmodee, Coiled Spring, Accentuate, ChaosCards, ZATU, Czech Games and Cake Battle & Roll. Let's make this year's event even bigger and better.

GAZCON 2020 will run from 1pm till 10pm. You'll be able to play a wide range of games ranging from board games, card games, miniatures games, battle games, social deduction games and silly party games. You are welcome to bring your own games, but there will be a wide selection of over 200 games to choose from in our Games Library.

St. Michael's Church Hall is a large space that we would love to fill with the sound of people having fun! We have space for about 100 people. Whether you are coming alone or with family or friends... we'll find space at a table for you.

Tickets are £5 on the door. Under 8s get in free, and all children under 15 must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Each ticket buys you a wristband which grants you access to the venue, a limited edition 'GAZCON1' first player token (launched at last year's GAZCON), access to the games library of over 200 games (see further details below) and free refreshments.

PRIZE DRAW!... There will also be an opportunity for you to win games!

Money raised will be donated to a charity to be chosen at a time closer to the event.

Some basic rules for being awesome at GAZCON

Our aim is to gather people around tables to have fun and spend time in each others' company! All we ask is that you follow these simple rules to helping make the whole day awesome for everyone:

Be friendly. Behave and talk in a way that will help others feel welcome and comfortable. Treat the games you play with respect - no card bending, sticky fingers or component eating! Games cost money... sometimes lots of money! If you can cope with these 2 basic rules then you are more than welcome.

Are there minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Everyone is welcome but anyone under 15yrs must be accompanied by a paying adult.

How does the games library work?

How accessible is the venue?

The venue is completely wheelchair friendly so access to the building and the gaming hall and toilets are all on one level with no steps.

Is there parking at the venue and more importantly... is there a chippy?

There is limited car parking at the venue and on street parking with a larger car park within walking distance at the Kingsway Shopping Centre, where you will find takeaways (Chinese, Chippy & Pizza) and convenience stores.
