For those of you just now tuning in, Gaming Conventions like TLD CON are opportunities for gamers from all over to get together and celebrate what we all love – Tabletop gaming. You do not need to be a lifelong or die hard fan of the hobby to enjoy the amenities of a convention. If you’ve been to any of our past events, you’re already familiar with a large part of what conventions are all about – playing games and having fun.
TLD CON will maintain all of the open/guru gaming, but will add more tournaments, scheduled events, new role playing games and interactive activities, painting, crafts, and more. Big conventions (which we hope to one day grow up to be!) offer vendors both local and from across the country with wares like cosplay accessories, dice, nerd merch, and of course – games. At scale we’ll be adding all of these features, and also be able to plan even more large scale events involving dozens of player all at the same time. With enough participation, we can bring that atmosphere to Detroit perhaps as early as this October!
