What is Handycon?

HandyCon is an biannual board gaming convention held every January and August (the next being 11th - 13th August 2017 and 19th - 21st January 2018) with an emphasis on playing lots of games, meeting fellow gamers and having a lot of board game related fun. We have various tournaments, a trader, a game library and plenty more going on.

Open Gaming

Play new games or old favourites. Party games, heavy strategy games or anything in between.


Fame! Glory! Prizes! Test your skills and take on fellow gamers in various tournaments.

Game Library

Be sure to check our our game library which is open to attendees for the duration of the convention.


A board game raffle, convention games, play-testing and much more to come.

The Venue

The Holiday Inn, High Wycombe is located on the roundabout with Junction 4 of the M40 so is equally convenient travelling from London and the south or Birmingham and further north. Connecting with the A404, it is therefore easily connected to the M4 making it convenient for the West as well.

We have sole use of the Conference room facilities comprising a large spacious room, a medium room and several smaller gaming rooms in addition to a further Lounge and Bar area for lighter/less space dependent games. This gives the event a capacity of 220 gamers this year.

The bar will stay open until the early hours and there will be a special HandyCon menu announced shortly.

Visit the The Holiday Inn, High Wycombe website for more information.


If you need any help, these people will be happy to assist.
