London Gaming Con is fast approaching this 3-4 December! You still have until this Monday 28 November to register and pre-pay for discount entry. Register at http://www.londongamingcon.com/register.php
Even if you miss that deadline, the event will still take on-the-day payments at £10 per day (or just £5 if you come after 6pm – excellent if you want to come just for the parties!). So all the more reason to drag along your friends who did not bother to pre-pay (Yay!)
