44: Geek/Business - How to Start a Convention - UnCon - Interview with Darius and Jayde

We love conventions at CfG! Meeting new people, playing games, cosplay, buying things and more!

Darius and Jayde of All Around the Board accidentally started their own convention... UnCon is heading towards its third weekend on 21st-22nd April 2018 and I wanted to know how it happened.

We cover the backstory, developing relationships, finding a venue, building excitement, and naturally when talking gaming, get a bit distracted and talk about all sorts of great games!
