I love cons, I love being surrounded by like minded people, I love trying out different systems with different GM's and different players.
Variety is indeed the spice of my RP life. But what con has been the best one of 2011?

To vote for your winner all you need do is write a short citation as to why you think the Convention you are nominating should win this award.

The downside is it always feels too short and there's arguably not enough time for boozing and socialising, but as far as gaming goes its hard to beat. Amazing selection of systems and refs, generally up for it crowd that attend and lovely convivial atmosphere (even if for some reason I tend to get grief every year for sitting at the only available table left in the bar, alongside the people I've entered the pub with). Its just down the road for me, has great facilities on the doorstep and attached accommodation replete with breakfast service. There's a modest but well-stocked trader and other bits & bobs like a free raffle give away too. Signing up for games and GM rewards are proper awesome too.
Plus, I played Mouseguard. <HONK!>

Indiecon - By far and away the friendliest convention out there, it has an intimate laid back feel with and empowering vibe of collective envolvement, The icebreaker on the first night has some great games that get people together with people they probably dont know for some off the cuff fun and allows people to intigrate as oppossed to sitting in the bar in cliques with thier mates, like certain other conventions..... Games, you will not find another convention in the UK to beat this on variety, with a crowd of forgiving gamers that are willing to break in new games and GM's. Cost..... 4 nights accom and the possibility of 11 gaming slots for £50..... Excelsior

But ill be honest..
It would have to be Indiecon for the last year.
I had a great time at all 3 cons last year but Indiecon was the most pleasent from a purely gaming aspect.
Consequences is great and i love seeing many of my friends i would not see otherwise during the year. Thats very very important to me and the organisation and booking system is second to none.
Consequences i always support because of the damm hard work the organisers and refs put in but it suffers from the overcrowding problems etc as we all know. I tend to think that Conception is hard work because games are in such demand that its impossible almost to book into games along with your friends as a small grouping. If you did so then you would be blocking out a game for others which isnt really fair, giving just how many people attend. In fact you could regard Indiecon as like Conception was say 10 years ago...Indiecon has the advantage over Conception in that its more "laid back" with smaller numbers of people..
Just my opinions of course, and all the cons have strengths; and all the organisers of all the cons have my thanks and admiration... but overall Indiecon in 2011 would win if im honest...
