Run A Game - Get In Free!

With the success of Con-Quest we are going to do it all again in 2012 only bigger and better than before.

Dates are Saturday 14th April 2012 and we are at the Derby Assembly Rooms again.

We endeavour to provide a wide and far reaching games programme for our attendees to showcase what UK role players can offer.

To avoid clashes and overlaps the day will be split into two slots for games that will run for 3.5 hours with a gap in between for food, refreshments, wandering the trade hall, etc.

Day will be split into slots
    Slot 1 = 10:30 until 14:00
    Slot 2 = 15:00 until 18:30


To register your games before the convention, you will need to email the gaming hotline address at dave@con-quest.co.uk and we’ll see to it that you’re booked in with a table and advertised on the website.

Pass on the usual sort of details:

    GM name
    Title of Game
    Game System and Setting (if important)
    Game Slot
    [morning or afternoon?]
    Quiet or Display Game? [In a quieter room or in the main hall]
    Max Number of Players
    Length of Game
    Short Description
    [up to 500 words]
    Tags [any short, snappy key words, such as age, experience needed, drop in or sign up?]


We’re happy to get any kind of game with a variety of settings or genres for all tastes and gaming philosophies.
From D&D 4e to Pathfinder via Dead of Night, RuneQuest and Savage Worlds, traditional to radical, chess to Heroclix, demo game to playtest, Last Night on Earth to Warmachine with a little Call of Cthulhu along the way – label up what you want to run and we’ll do our best to promote it and provide you what you need from the venue.

For those that are unsure or are not confident GMing a game for strangers we will offer support and help.

Some advice below may be helpful for novice Con GMs and experts alike:

6d6 at Con-Quest 2012



6d6 is looking forward to returning their 'home' convention and we will be there in numbers.

We will have a full range of 6d6 products for sale including the brand new 6d6 Shootouts pick-up game

As always, we will be running as many games as possible. Demo games of 6d6 Shootouts will be taking place throughout the day and we also have five scheduled 6d6 RPG games:

AM - Slot 1

"Crashing into Tartarus" - Ben Lally / 6d6 Bots
Join the creator of 6d6 Bots (coming soon) on adventure that will change you view of the solar system.

"Marionet" - Kieran Kowalski / 6d6 Core + Cybernetics
Join the writer of our Cybernetics supplement in a near-future adventure.

"Savage Island" - Matt Jackson / 6d6 Magic
Our tried and tested demonstration game returns with a new GM.


PM - Slot 2

"Empty Spaces" - Faye Lampshire / Unnamed Project
A first public playtest of a new project. The setting is unnamed because we cannot find a title that involves vampires but doesn't infringe a certain company's trademarks.

"American Sweethearts" - Ben Jackson / Rebel Flesh
Another first public outing, this time for a brand new modern horror setting by 6d6's best selling author.

The aftershow party will be at the Brunswick Inn near the Derby Railway Station.




From 19:00 to late in the upstairs part of the building. Some games may even break out there as well!
All are welcome to attend to discuss your war stories from the day’s games, relax in good company talking about the gaming hobby or even have some more games!

Built in 1842, and nearly pulled down in the Eighties, the Brunswick is a red brick, triangular shaped building at the end of a row of former railway workers' cottages. The station is a couple of minutes away, which makes it very handy if you have time to kill between trains.
They brew their own beer here, with the kit on show at the end of the stone-flagged corridor, such home-brewed delights as the bittersweet and refreshing Triple Hop or the dark and coffee-like Rockin' Johnny's Derby Pride. There were 14 real ales on offer, half of them brewed on the premises.
Beer nirvana.
Nicely priced too!

Malifaux is a miniatures skirmish game set in a universe infuenced by Victorian steampunk, gothic horror and the Old West, amongst others. Your crew of 32mm miniatures, led by your Master, will need to achieve a strategy and schemes, whilst preventing your opponent achieving theirs, and what's more you get to Cheat Fate along the way. All you need are a few figures with their stat cards, a tape measure, rulebook and fate deck (no dice here) to enter the world of Malifaux.

Come along to the Old West town of Edgeport to learn how to play. See Sonnia burst here opponents into flame whilst Rasputina puts the chill on them, and Lady Justice lays down the law!

We a delighted to announce the traders and stall holders that will be attending Con-Quest Midlands 2012.




Leisure Games (established in 1985) has long been one of Europe's leading specialist Games Shops, stocking the widest ranges of RPGs, Board Games, War Games, CCGs, Miniatures, Dice, and gaming accessories. We have a large bricks & mortar store in North London, and also run a very fast and efficient mail order service/online store, and we also support a number of Gaming Conventions around the country.



-----------------------------------------------------------

Magic Geek

Magic Geek are CCG traders primarily focusing on Magic: The Gathering.



We stock a large range of single cards and boxed product. As one of the UK’s Advanced Level tournament organizers we also run regular monthly events at our Birmingham and Stafford venues. Finally, as we are board game fans we stock a growing range of card and board games too.

-----------------------------------------------------------
6d6 Fireball




We were asked to supply some blurb but rather than write some vague, self-congratulatory bollocks, we would rather you just played our game to find out why we have been receiving rave reviews and building a reputation as one the most innovative RPG companies around. Sign-up for any of the numerous 6d6 RPG games taking place or drop by the table for a quick game of 6d6 Shootouts. Alternatively, go to 6d6 Online and read all our products free of charge.

-----------------------------------------------------------
Silver Branch Games




Silver Branch Games is one of the UK's leading small press RPG publishers, run by Tim Gray just down the road in Nottingham. Albion, our Celtic-themed fantasy game, was recently voted UK Roleplayers 2011 Game of the Year. Jaws of the Six Serpents, a sword-and-sorcery RPG using the PDQ system, has been very popular at UK conventions - and has just got a line of T-shirts!

-----------------------------------------------------------
UK Laser Tag Association



We're members of the UK Laser Tag Association, an umbrella organisation of various smaller groups that organize live-action role-playing games in various genres. The people coming to Con-Quest will be volunteers hoping to publicise some upcoming games, and "Tag" as a medium for LARP.
As you can see from the calendar we have several games coming up that we hope to interest people in.
