A Great Time was had at Wintercon

Go Play Manchester Wintercon went down a storm yesterday. Twenty-five attendees made it through the rain, and the cold, and eight games were played throughout the day. We even squeezed into the Port Street Arms for a post-con chat.

I ran RuneQuest in the morning, we went up the Winter Gods Glacier – and an epic time was had. In the afternoon, I ran my cyberpunk game, Reboot the Future, and that was awesome too 🙂

I’ll be sorting out dates with Fanboy 3 soon. Thanks to everyone who came.

Here’s some feedback via Twitter

@goplaymanc Great GMing from Udo. Deadly robots, the bending of time, and beating the bullies at roller hockey. Odd how the GM found an actual photo of me from the 80s for my character

Really great to get around the table for a day at @goplaymanc WinterCon at @goplaymanc – enjoyed getting into being an Ewok in @ottomancer ‘s excellent Edge of Empire game. Very atmospheric and fun! Kenner have been on, they’re making a line of Flunge for next Xmas!

Fantastic day at the ebullient @Newtus @goplaymanc WinterCon – I played an ewok shaman in @ottomancer ‘s excellent Endor’s Game, and Trouble Brewing from @cubicle7 ‘s Soulbound RPG – a great pub crawl one-shot. Will deffo get Soulbound to some cons now – a smooth system.

I had a great time at #WinterCon today. I ran FFG Star Wars in the morning, and played 2d20 Conan in the afternoon. Lots of fun with @_AndyHemming @RoderiHamilt @theGROGNARDfile @milnermaths @Newtus and many others.

In person RPGs are still > online RPGs.
