- Midcon 2002
Birmingham City Thistle Hotel, 22-24 November 2002
Midcon returns for its 23rd year with the UK National Diplomacy
Championships and a host of other games including the latest finds from
Essen's Spiel 2002. Midcon will be held in its usual hotel, but slightly
later in the year than usual.
The UK National Diplomacy Championships is a three-round individual
tournament. Other regular scheduled events include the Midcon Trivia Quiz
and the Pop Quiz. Unscheduled informal play of a huge range of games is the
main feature of this convention and there is also a bring-and-buy stand and
a games shop stand.
Registration costs £10. Hotel room rates are £34 per person per night
sharing and £43 per night for single rooms. Danny Collman is researching
alternative accommodations outside the hotel for attendees who wish to
spend less on rooms. Registration will be available at the door for £12 for
the weekend or £7 per day (or part thereof). We reserve the right to charge
this registration to anyone who seeks admission to the convention rooms
even if they do not intend to play games.
