Twice a year London On Board heads to the seaside. We take over an entire hotel and fill it with games and gamers. Why not join us?

LoBsterCon n-n-n-n-XIX

A board gaming convention by the sea (1st-4th May 2020)

Four days of board games, sea, sand and sunshine (sometimes).

This is our last hurrah at the Cumberland Hotel Eastbourne, then off to the Queens Hotel in November.

A relatively quick train journey from London Victoria and you're in Eastbourne on the glorious south coast.  So why not join us for a day trip the weekend or the whole four day event?

Gaming Passes and Hotel Packages

Packages include (per person):

  • Four-Day Gaming Pass
  • Hotel Accomodation (bed and breakfast at the Cumberland Hotel, Eastbourne) for 2 nights (Fri/Sat or Sat/Sun)

You can also buy a Four-Day Gaming Pass and make your own accomodation arrangements.
