BoardGameCamp: coming soon to London

OK, this is shamefully close to a blog version of a retweet, but it deserves a signal boost for the benefit of at least some of the people who'll see this. James Wallis posts:

Mark your diaries: Saturday 9th October is BoardGameCamp, part of the London Games Festival, brought to you by the same people who were behind GameCamp back in April, in the same place. We’ll be playing games old and new, hosting discussion sessions and seminars on all types of tabletop games, and even running a competition for teams to concept, design, build and playtest a game in six hours… with some truly awesome prizes.

More to follow, but the first tranche of tickets will go on sale on Friday (£10 including lunch). Last time we accidentally put them all online at once and they still sold out in half an hour, so don’t hang around.
ETA: tickets are expected to be released at 11am, UK time, on Friday, and will probably go at least as quickly.

I didn't get to go to the last GameCamp, but second-hand reports suggest that there was a very heavy emphasis on digital games, so I didn't mind missing it nearly as much as I thought I would do. Unfortunately I'm going to be working day shifts on Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th, so I'm not going to be able to go to this one, which would seem to be rather more to my taste.
