Announcing the Great Hobocon Bakeoff

Calling all bakers!

This year we are hosting the Great Hobocon Bakeoff, an opportunity for all of you to show off your mad baking skills, and help those in need.

Here’s how it works: bring along your delicious and crazy creations on Saturday of the convention, and they will be judged by your peers, and our special guest judge Anna (who is peerless). The most delicious and delightful baked goods will win their creator the title of Great Hobocon Baker, and a very special prize (we have definitely already decided what this will be).

Once they have been judged, the baked items will be available for sale to your fellow con-goers. If you want to bring in non-competitive stuff for this, please go mad! All proceeds from this will go to a charity for the homeless in Dublin.

We do have some requests: please do not make anything containing nuts, and list your ingredients. Also, if you can, try to make something gluten-free so that our coeliac friends can join in on the fun.

Ready? Set? BAKE.

Hobocon Iron Has A Website!

Hallo all!

Hobocon Iron is a tabletop gaming convention which will be taking place on Saturday the 3rd and Sunday 4th of June 2017, in the Teachers Club on Parnell Square in Dublin.

The convention is being run by Liz, with Siskey aiding and abetting. If you’ve got any questions for us, please get in touch either on our Facebook page¬†or by¬†emailing us at

We’ll be announcing games that will be running at the convention here, as well as other useful information. Right now we are announcing the Irish Guild Ball Championship, so go have a look at that!

Hope to see you all there,

The Hobocon Team (which is a more impressive way of saying Liz and Siskey)
