AireCon North West 2023

AireCon North West 2023

AireCon is a family friendly, inclusive, analog gaming festival; showcasing modern board games and card games.  AireCon has successfully established itself in Harrogate for over 7 years, and now it is ready to conquer Manchester with its first-ever event in the city.  It will be held between Friday 8th and Sunday 10th December at Manchester Central Convention Complex.  To find out more about AireCon Manchester and opening times, visit the AireCon Manchester webpage.

Imagination Gaming will be running the awesome Family Zone there this year and we will be bringing awards games from 2023 along, with some of the old favourites, as well as an introduction to role playing games (RPG). Come and see us to ‘Learn to Play and Play to Learn’!

We will also be running our Inter-School Games Tournament, absolutely FREE! on Friday 8th.  A competition like no other, giving children an opportunity to showcase their maths, literacy & problem-solving skills. Imagination Gaming have been working with schools for the last 16 years delivering curriculum-based activities.  Using a wide range of exciting tabletop board games we engage, enthuse and educate pupils of all ages and abilities. Our tournaments are designed to encourage healthy competition between schools, offering something a little different from the normal sporting competitions. We refer to our tournaments as ‘mind-sport competition’.  If you know any local primary schools that might be interested then tell them to get in touch at for more information and to book.


Games coming with us to the event include some Hasbro and Achroma, a beginners RPG table, as well as our Imagination Gaming awards 2023 entrances.
