Airecon 2020 Inter School Tournament

On the 13th March Imagination Gaming returned to Harrogate to take part in this year’s Airecon Games Convention, a friendly open gaming event.

Like previous years we were joined on day 1 by a selection of schools. We had Primary Schools attend all eager to take part in our Inter-School Games Tournament and for the first time ever some Secondary School pupils who took part in our Games Workshop.

Barely into the new school year and yet another Inter-School Tournament to shout about, this time with primary schools from the Barnsley Town Centre Collaboration!

Klask: Simple games solving complex problems…

The reputation of games nowadays is that of the coolest of hobbies. With stunning artwork, clever mechanics and infinity more players than ever before, it’s a great time to be a gamer in this hobby.
