This Minicon took place at Shakespeare & Co, Jumeirah Village Mall, Dubai, from 10am to 8pm on October 23, 2015, and was organized by Andy Staples. There was no admission charge, and was not a ticketed event - turn up for the whole or part of the day as you wish.

Original Announcement

For providing the venue, Shakespeare & Co expect people to order refreshments from them. Please do not bring your own food and drink. The tea shop has an excellent selection of meals, hot and cold beverages and snacks - you won't go hungry.

If you plan to attend, please indicate that on the minicon's Facebook events page would help us give the catering staff some idea of expected numbers.

Most of the tables will be open for casual games - feel free to bring a roleplaying, card game, wargame or boardgame either to stage a demo or to recruit players on the day.

We will be running a number of pre-booked games in two sessions. Please contact the individual gamesmasters through Facebook to reserve a place at their table. Places at these games may not be available without pre-booking. If pre-book but find yourself unable to make it, please let the GM know in advance.

Location

The Village Mall is on Jumeirah Road, Dubai, near Jumeirah Open Beach - between Dubai Zoo and Jumeirah Mosque, but on the opposite side of the road. There is parking outside the mall, and on the opposite side of the road if that's full.
