What Made Knavecon IV great?
The venue ? Fantastic, best venue so far, layout was great, big, airy, the reception room for chill-out, game demos, buy and sell and coffee worked a treat. The tables were way better than the last setup and we had ample space. Hotel Staff were great.
The Games? We had a great selection of games on the day, more than last time, some great games were played. I LOVED Rampage, what a crazy, silly game, (Which one of the lads rushed to Galway the next morning and bought a copy and it will be appearing this Thur at Thur night games!). I loved cockroach salad (It just hated me).
The Helpers? We had a lot more people on hand to speed up registration, help with game demos, move stuff and generally offer advice (I don’t believe anyone said “don’t trust Vic” once at the con, they’re slipping)
The random events? People in dressing gowns wandering down from the Spa, Wedding guests strolling in and quickly strolling out, men with bagpipes tuning up
The traders? Some great games on offer from our traders, thanks guys for making the trip
These all helped but it was the people who came on the day, got stuck in and gamed gamed gamed until the wee hours.
Every time Knavecon is run we learn more about what you want, what we do wrong and what we do right and we always try and make the next one that bit better. Knavecon V is going to be a milestone for us. Preparations are already afoot for it and it’s going to be the best one to date.
Knaves (anyone who came is a Knave), you came, you gamed, you rocked. I salute you!
