This weekend is OxCon (distinct from OxCon, the Oxford Comic Con), a weekend of gaming held every January in The Mitre pub in the middle of Oxford. It has acquired almost mythical status since publicity hitherto has almost entirely been by word of mouth and often quite last minute. For those who are about on Friday evening there will be a meal at Pizza Express at 6.30pm and some gaming afterwards. As well as general gaming, there will also be the Settlers of Catan contest on the Saturday with a dexterity contest on the Sunday (to include games like Bandu, Rhino Hero, Riff Raff, and Rampage). Entry is £3 for students and £5 for non-students, payable at the door. Not sure how many of the GOATS will make it, that will depend on weather and family commitments, but it should be a good event.
