LoBsterCon is a biannual board gaming convention held in Spring and late Autumn in Eastbourne
Our next live event, LoBsterCon XXI, will take place from Friday, November 5 through to Monday, November 8, 2021 at the Cumberland Hotel, Eastbourne*.
This event will involve a few changes such as limitations on the number of attendees, the types of package and pass available, and some of the activities mentioned below may not go ahead as before.
Full details can be found on our COVID-19 page. We have tried to highlight these with a # throughout the site.
What’s Goin’ On?
A selection of our regular activities
Official open gaming runs Friday Midday through to Monday at 2pm. But that doesn’t stop people arriving earlier or leaving later…
Every Package and every Weekend Pass includes one entry per person into the now legendary Saturday Night Raffle.
Bring the games from your shelf of shame or the Kickstarter that doesn’t suit your tastes and monetise them. #
(register games from 7pm)
Party & Social Games
Join our ever ebullient host Glenn for two teams of fun. No limit to the size of teams and expect raucousness, rambunctiousness, and all round jollity. #

...by the Sea
Eastbourne is a quintessentially English seaside town, with lots to see and do besides the board games (if you like that sort of thing).
There are great value restaurants, pubs and bars including LoBsterCon staple, the Fusciardi Ice Cream Parlour. And for a bit of exercise, head to the beautifully restored pier - or take a great walk up to Beachy Head.
Plus, at our spring event, you’ll have the chance to play croquet at the world famous Compton Croquet Club.
