Hi all. New chrome for October 2019! We have moved house but all the old threads and posts came with us - was a big van.
No more crazy tech errors as we have upgraded the backend of the forum and should be good till 2077 now...
Well as people will have been able to tell it went really well. Not. and we are not out of the woods yet but wee are running on the new servers. I just have to go and tweak loads of things to make them work now. - If you can see a load of errors at the top of the page - thats what I am trying to sort out first.
Any other new issues you come across please let me know via PM.
We are moving servers as the one we are on is past it and everything is being upgraded - bigger fatter faster more. So I will be shutting down the site for a short while at some point in the next few days - possibly even tonight. If you see a message saying the website account is suspended then that will be DNS servers at your ISP with the old IP information but I am doing some testing on other websites to make sure that the transition is as smooth as possible.
2004 Gen Con UK
Gen Con UK gets bigger and better in 2004
In Autumn 2004, Horsemen Events present Gen Con UK - "The Best Four Days in Gaming!" - at the Butlins resort in Minehead, England.
Running from Thursday, October 14th to Sunday, October 17th, Gen Con UK will have an extensive programme, including industry guests, role-play games, card game tournaments, board games, computer games, an art show and a huge trade hall. We will also be helping to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Dungeons and Dragons.
"The majority of gamers wanted a return to the halcyon years of gaming events - outside London and based in a popular holiday resort. With the Butlins resort near Bristol, we can have a bigger and better Gen Con UK, with the potential for growth in the future" says Mark Smith, Horsemen Events' charismatic front man.
Gen Con UK has been scheduled in the week prior to the Essen Spiel games fair, to help US and other non-UK manufacturers combine both events in a single trip.
The Butlins resort at Minehead offers attendees a wide variety of choices; in addition to a range of accommodation options (including self-catering and half board) and free car parking, attendees will also be able to use other on-site leisure facilities, including the giant sub-tropical Waterworld (with water rides and wave machines), cinema, sports courts, Go-carts and a Megazone. The site also has a wide range of food and drink outlets, ranging from fast-food (such as Burger King and Harry Ramsden's) to restaurants and pubs. There are also a range of other facilities, including laundrette, cash-points, nursery service, and on-site supermarket and newsagent.
Gen Con is a name that has been one with the gaming world for over 36 years. It began as a meeting between some friends to play games in Lake Geneva, USA - thus the name Gen (Geneva) Con (Convention). Today that name lives on in the gaming industry as the places to go to get the goods. Gen Con has expanded to three shows worldwide. There are shows in Europe, Indianapolis (USA), and California (USA).
In late February 2004 information packs will be available for delegates and traders; to pre-register for an information pack, please contact Horsemen Events.
