There are (clean!) toilets on site, and we are able to serve free Tea & Coffee. If you have been before to my events you know to expect free drinks and free nibbles during the day! In addition I am arranging with the pub next door for buying drinks from them and bringing back to the venue for those who like a stronger drink!

We will apply for sanctioning at the correct time. In addition i am happy to provide full refunds up to 14 days in advance, will be a reduced amount after due to purchase of items by then.

In addition the fist 16 players will also recieve a random limited edition Steamcon Season 3 player card! I managed to get my hands on enough to offer one each to the first 16 players who book a ticket.

Also please note that this is Season 3 so you will be expected to use relevant player and Plot Cards. The new plot cards will be available for collection on the day from www.leodisgames.com if preordered. You can also order the new players with free collection on the day!

Silly question, this will be my first tournament. Do I need to bring terrain or a pitch?

Not silly at all! Nope all pitches and scenery will be there. You just need your team, cards, dice etc. It would be handy if you have a set of plot cards or a timer for the games but they aren't 100% needed as only need 1 between 2 players and often a few spares around. I know many players will take their mat and scenery along 'just incase' but they don't usually come out of the car boot :)

I would just like to drop a line to say thank you for organising what was for me a fantastic event, my first of 2017!  The venue was ideal, safe parking, unlimited access to snacks and coffee throughout the day and the pub lunch was a perfect addition (all included in the price!).  I will certainly look to attend again, time permitting, and would certainly be recommending it to others as well.

A final thanks to all four of my opponents on the day, Chris, Mark, David and Alex, I enjoyed all my games thank you:).
