The KnaveKids Promise


Knavekids is kicking off on next Sunday, the 19th July for the first time in what I hope will be a regular shadow convention to the regular Knavecon.

After the last Knavecon’s success with the kids corner we’re going to hold a family friendly event aimed at families and children who want take part in something that’s a win win for everyone involved

Boardgames are something that the whole family can enjoy, they’ve come a long way from Monopoly and Snakes and Ladders. The benefits are too numerous to list here.

Wether you’re a veteran gamer or someone who wandered into the event thinking it was a wedding and didn’t leave, you’re going to have a good time, your kids are going to have a good time.  I promise you

Come join us



Who’s Afraid? – eMail Werewolf V is afoot


Calling all werewolf fans, Knavecon is now recruiting for the annual email Werewolf Game.  if you’ve played this game before you will know exactly what it is about.  If you’ve attended Knavecon and took part in Werewolf you’ll know what it’s about too.  This version gets played out by email with the wolves claiming a victim every day (bar weekends where they take a rest).   Voting also happens once a day

Dr Phil in the house

I regularly get slagged off for playing inappropriate music at games nights. Even though Knavecon can be a noisy affair I always thought it lacked music, so rather than subject the gamers to my Excellent taste in music I’m bringing in a professional.  Say hello to Big Phil.  Phil Wade is a veteran DJ who regularly plays in Limerick and as a gamer himself is perfectly placed to produce the ambient atmosphere and background music the con deserves.


This is going to be a hell of a day!
