LoBsterCon 28 Apr 2020

LoBsterCon XIX returns!!! This time it's Online...

To mark the time we would have spent together, and at no charge, open to all, and thanks to the magnificent efforts of Glenn, Paul and Gareth, we are happy to announce LoBsterCon XIX Online.

Over the coming weekend, starting the evening of 1st May 2020, we will be running a Discord server where we can all gather chat and peel off to play games on Yucata, Board Game Arena, Boite a Jeux, Tabletopia, Happy Games or Tabletop Simulator.

The Discord server is open and can be found here: LoBsterCon on Discord (

Why not check out what’s available in the London on Board Online Gaming Forum (; where hopefully you'll find or post some guides to how to play with you fellow LoBsters online.

Or you could use our handy List of Board Games Online (, which is updated regularly, just type in the game you want to play and we’ll tell you where you can play it online.

We’re having a few events where we hope you’ll all join in (details and schedule below):

  • 6 Nimmt Tournament

  • Kwazy Kwarantine Kwiz

  • Social Games with Glenn

Your orgs will be around to answer questions about online gaming, and maybe we can all make this horridness just a bit more joyful.

Feel free to invite your friends, this is for everyone who was going to LoBsterCon, but it’s also for all LoBsters and soon to be LoBsters. So bring your friends and enjoy the party. Roll on November!
