Each event is €5 or €10 for the weekend. Wargames are located in the Astra Hall


Age of Sigmar:

As the forces of order, chaos and death battle to determine the fate of the Warhammer world, we stand around to make idle chit chat and witty trash talk.

A round robin tournament.

Saturday 10-5



In the future there is only war. Well, war and prizes. Well, war and prizes and bragging rights.

A round robin tournament to prove that you’re the best at moving little plastic space men.

Sunday 10-6



“Red leader standing by”. “Stay on target”. “Hello there”.

Ensure your opponents fear the might of your fully armed and operational battle fleets in this round robin tournament.

Friday 6-9



Ah painting, probably the most relaxing part of warning. Being able to switch off and focus on something small for hours on end.

That’s not how this is going to roll. We provide a mini, you bring your paints. One hour to work with, best job wins!

Conspiracy 2: Take the crown draft

The throne lies empty, will you take it? In this throwback draft we will be revisiting the high city of Paliano in a bout for control. Make use of conspiracies that twist the rules against your foes. Trade votes and spread your attacks to manipulate the game in your favour. Seize the crown and give yourself a greater edge- if you can keep it; the crown brings power but also the attention of those ambitious enough to take power for themselves… A perfect event for both newer players and the more experienced alike.

Entry €10

Location: UCD Clubhouse Bar

Board Games Tournaments!

This year we’re running not one, not two but three different boardgames tournaments over the course of the con: 30 Seconds, Love Letter, and Settlers of Catan. Entry comes at the low low price of €2 with prizes in the form of tickets for the Prize Wall!


30 Seconds:
30 seconds is a super speedy little game in which your general knowledge is put to the test, much like charades this less cringy version of heads up sees the players taking it in turns to explain up to five different words on the cards drawn without using even part of the original word! The player who reaches the end of the board first by getting the most correct answers from your team mates wins! Sounds easy, right? Wrong! (-ish) handicaps make the game a little more changing for those with a competitive streak! Have you got what it takes?

Saturday 11-1, Entry €2



Love Letter:

For educated and wild guessers alike love letter is a game of risk, deduction and luck! This game consists of 16 cards and can be played by up to 4 people, the goal of the game is to be the only suitor to prevail in the quest to deliver the fair princess Annette her love letter. On each turn the player picks up a card and plays a card hoping to reveal the final card in the hand of one of your team mates to knock them from the game. All you must do is choose (and guess!) wisely.

Saturday 2-5, Entry €2



Settlers of Catan:

Compete for spaces, resources and rewards in this legendary strategy game in which players have the opportunity to see their little colony’s flourish! Each player will start with 2 settlements and 2 roads to place and collect your first commodities. Resources can be traded and robbers placed with the goal of reaching 10 victory points accumulated by upgrading your towns into city’s, having the longest road and most fearsome army faster than your comrades! It takes more than just luck to dominate the island and reap the rewards. If you’ve never played Settlers of Catan before and are interested their website has a how to play.

Sunday 11-1, Entry €2
