What is Uncon?
UNCON is a tabletop gaming convention with an open gaming area, stalls, game designers, publishers and your future friends.
Run by 'All Around The Board', UNCON is a family friendly event with one main goal: to bring people together to socialise and have fun, all while playing a wide selection of board games.
Whether you're new to gaming or play tabletop games on a regular basis, there's something for everyone at UNCON. From kid's games to co-operative and social deduction games, UNCON boasts a wide selection of tabletop games suitable for people of all ages. You can view our games library here.
Having grown continuously in size since 2017, UNCON is a great opportunity to bring families together and meet new people, catering for people of all ages. At the last UNCON alone, we had a turnout of 187 people on Saturday and 156 on Sunday.
We're a friendly bunch. If you're new to gaming, looking for a game to play or need help going in the right direction, our game hosts, (who can be spotted wearing bright green UNCON t-shirts), will be ready to help.
However, we also understand that you may need a break too, which is why we also have a wide selection of board game designers and sellers. You can see these in our 'special guests' section, but please keep checking the Homepage for more updates.
Where is Uncon?
UNCON 4.0 will be in the Heart Centre at St Georges School, Broadstairs. The huge and modern venue allows us room to seat 300 people in the main hall and a further 100 people in the separate rooms we will have available.
Who We Are
Who We Are
Founded by Darius and Jayde, UNCON is run by a local board game group, 'All Around The Board'.
Having a huge passion for board games and socialising, we decided to create UNCON to bring families together, encouraging them to meet new people while having fun.
Now accompanied by a team of twenty UNCON hosts who will be there to help at the event, we are joined by a team of individuals who share the same passion: to encourage socialising among large groups of people through the interaction of board games.
As well as having a wide selection of games for you to play, we also have a series of special guests, who will be demoing and selling new games. Please keep checking our website for further announcements. Otherwise, please visit the Uncon buy, swap & sell page for more information.
