Airecon Report

We had a great time at Airecon! Jon headed down from Scotland to Harrogate in Yorkshire for two days this weekend.

Our kind hosts were our old friends Travelling Man, and we demoed dozens of games of Bang & Twang and The Forest Dragon on their booth. It looks like we have a good number of new Forest Dragon fans!

We also got to chat to folks about our RPG plans for Beowulf and Hellenistika, and were pleasantly surprised by how many people have heard about what we’re up to!


Jon gave his talk to an unexpectedly full seminar room, and it seems to have been well received! With lots of experience there were three sets of slide on hand depending on what people wanted to hear about – games design and publishing, art direction or art creation.  Jon delivered a bit of a mix, and thank you if you came along. We hope it was useful!

We also got a chance to catch up with our friends Wotan Games, All Rolled Up, artist Ralph Horsley, rpg writer Steve Emmott, gamer and TV presenter Marty Jopson, baker extraordinaire Kim-Joy, our friends from Yog-Sothoth and meet fellow designers from just down the road in Scotland, One Free Elephant.

As ever there wasn’t time to catch up with everyone we saw in passing or in the distance! Sorry if we missed you!

The show has a really wonderful family atmosphere and we enjoyed gaming late into the night. If you can get to Harrogate then Airecon is well worth the trip!

Thanks to Ben and Mark for inviting us down!


If you weren’t able to get to Airecon, you’ll soon be able to find Forest Dragon by Rory Age 9 and Bang & Twang in Travelling Man stores.

And if you can’t get to a store, then you can mail order copies from our shop right now.
