Sep 08, 2017 Buffalo, NY ConventionQueen City Conquest , 14202
The Queen City Conquest is Western New York’s premier gaming conventions. For the past five years we’ve been bringing the best three days of gaming to the region through epic events, interesting guests, and by providing the time and space for all of you wonderful gamers to get together with some of your favorite people from in and out of town.
A few highlights from the past have been the D&D epic which ran over twenty tables in 2016, having Sean Patrick Fannon run a table of 16 people in an epic Shaintar game in 2014, and our charity raffles and auctions which have raised thousands of dollars for Child’s Play.
Sep 09, 2017 Peterborough, ON ConventionPhantasm , K9J 3G5
We're an RPG event with a healthy amount of Board Games, LARP and Miniature War games. Bring out a friend to Phantasm for the weekend, who has never been out to it before and both you and them will get $5 off of each of your weekend passes.
All of the games at the Phantasm Convention can be played by a person who has never tried that game or RPG’ing before. There are commonly about 50+ types of games to try. And if you like something you’ve tried there are some great prices from the vendors. There is also just some really neat stuff from vendors that you won’t find anywhere else, like chain-mail dice bags. The pool of creative energy at the convention is staggering, the GM’s put in about 20 hours into a game, meaning there is about 2000+ hours put into weaving great stories for the convention. Now multiply that by the creative energy of players and it is just staggering, and you can’t help but be inspired. Folks commonly say they come out to charge their “creative batteries” for the year, and it’s easy to understand how. And once folks come out once they tend to come back again year after year.

In 2010 we celebrated our 10th anniversary, and for the first time brought in vendors, special guests and other gaming events, making the leap from Midwinter Event to Midwinter Gaming Convention.

Mar 08, 2018 Lake Geneva, WI ConventionGary Con , 53147
Gary Con is an annual game convention celebrating the life and works of Gary Gygax, the Father of Role Playing Games. We do this by doing what he loved so much in life, playing Games! Join Gary's children, friends and fellow game enthusiasts as we celebrate a life well-played.
Gary Con was started to celebrate the life of Gary Gygax, so many of the events are Old School games - in many cases your DM may be the original author or designer! However, any type of game is welcome: board games, card games, miniature war games, pen & paper RPGs, etc. At any given table you'll find any and all versions of Dungeons & Dragons and its progeny, cyberpunk heists, ships-of-the-line bombarding each other, car and chariot racing, Allies storming the Normandy beaches, jousting knights, or space marines desperately fighting off xenomorphs.
Gary Con has 24-hour gaming access at the convention center from Thursday 7 a.m. to Sunday 4pm. In addition to the scheduled events, many tables will be reserved for Open Gaming where you are free to find an open table or seat to run or play your own unplanned event.
Mar 09, 2018 Franklin, TN ConventionTennessee Game Days , 37067
Tennessee Game Days is an open gaming convention held annually just south of Nashville, TN. Attendees from all over Tennessee, surrounding states, and from places far and wide, gather for three solid days of open gaming. All kinds of board and card games will be available for play and you can find willing opponents for just about any game.
The event is focused on open gaming, so the easy answer is anything that you can find an opponent to play. That being said, the attendees of our event typically play family strategy games, or Eurogames. These are games that play in an hour or two, feature decision making throughout the game, and usually focus on player interactions over player elimination. Games like The Settlers of Catan or Power Grid. In addition to these games, modern conflict oriented games are also usually well represented - games like History of the World, Memoir '44, or Twilight Imperium.
What you won't see much of are miniatures games, like Warhammer, or collectible card games, like Magic: the Gathering - if your gaming tastes are focused predominately in either of those areas, this probably won't be the most fruitful event to attend. Take a look at our Past Events area to get a more in depth feeling for what a Tennessee Game Days weekend is like, and if you still have questions, let us know!
