Over the weekend I went to AireCon, an analog gaming convention held in Harrogate. Analog basically means (as far as I can tell) no computer games. The main focus is on board games, although there was also a roleplay section and a few other types dotted about.
I’ve been to Comic Con before, as well as going to a geek convention called Nerd East a few times during uni and to the eSports con Insomnia in 2014. But somehow I’ve never gone to the UK Games Expo, or to AireCon the previous times its been run, despite it being held only an hour away from me.
So even though I was shattered after a full day at a wedding fair and staying up late playing games the night before, on Sunday 10 March I headed up to Harrogate Convention Centre along with Tim and Ellie.
