Insomnia is one of the biggest gaming events in UK period, whether you are there for the BYOC/C LAN, to see Exhibitors or partake in the other things going on, it can be a good time. They have some different food vendors around, plenty of beer and alcohol and for the less technically inclined, they have a retro and board gaming area. I attended on the Friday and have to say, I quite enjoyed it, while I missed the rush of YouTubers and other things on Saturday, it seems I may have lucked out.

There was just so much going on, I didn’t have time to cover it all as I was also there doing press for Plexus Hub but I did manage to get some pics for you all to enjoy! Have a look below at all of the photos and hopefully I will be able to make I56 in Birmingham and get better coverage for you all!

Retro and Tabletop Gaming

For those looking to kick it back Ol’ Skool, or those who would rather play with a dice over a controller, there was a nice Retro and Tabletop gaming tent there to enjoy

Stages

There were a few stages where some great events took place. From Q&A’s to YouTubes competing against each other for all to watch, the stages were definitely one of the main attractions for the event.

All in all, I quite enjoyed my day there and wished I could have stayed the weekend to enjoy things such as Pub Quiz and really seeing everything come together on Saturday! The next I series event is going to take place in December in Birmingham as they need a bigger arena to host it all!
