A Third Night add-on will be available for those wishing to stay Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Some rooms may be available directly from the venue for the Thursday night before the event. Message us for your assigned room number if that helps.
If you have specific room requirements or preferences please include details on the booking form, we cannot undertake to fulfil your requests but we will try.

Day passes will be available on the door. They do not include an entry in the Raffle.
Four-Day Gaming Passes, which include a Raffle entry, may be available in advance once the hotel packages are sold out.
The BGG list of our small but growing library of games can be found here.
There will as always be a huge library of games brought by you wonderful LoBsters for all to share and respectfully enjoy.
Chris Marling’s snappily titled "LoBsterCon XXII - Requests and what you're bringing along" BGG Geeklist will be up once tickets go on sale.
In the meantime check out the LoBsterCon XI list here, along with links to past geeklists for nostalgia and inspiration.
London On Board
LoBsterCon began life as a getaway weekend for members of London On Board (hence the LoBster in LoBsterCon).
LoB is London’s, the UK’s (and probably the world’s) biggest board games club. With close to 15,000 members on Meetup and its own helpful and informative website, you can find board games to play and events to attend in central London almost every evening during the week and all day at the weekends.
Our venues will always have wheelchair access via lifts or ramps to all gaming spaces.
There are a limited number of accessible bedrooms. So please contact us directly for booking options and to let us know how we can assist you with your needs
We can also provide advice about suitable alternative accommodation near the venue.
Given sufficient notice, if you are unable to attend, we will always attempt to resell your hotel room on your behalf. Demand is usually high, so this is rarely a problem.
Gaming Pass refunds are not generally possible and Package refunds are not guaranteed (and subject to deduction of fees and expenses incurred).
