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!

Hobby gaming takes many forms and formats, including: collectible card games (CCGs), board/tabletop games (TBL), and a variety of roleplaying games (RPGs). From casual 'party' style play, to more competitive tournament competition, you'll find many different opportunities to enjoy your favorite games, or to learn new ones.
Beyond the games themselves, KublaCon strives to broaden your experience of the hobby of gaming, including: A huge dealer's room filled with the latest games to purchase or peruse, seminars on all aspects of gaming from history to design, special events and seminars featuring Hobby Game celebrities, and a Young Player's room designed to encourage critical thinking and to teach good social skills.
Above it all, you'll meet organizers and attendees who LOVE gaming. You'll meet gamers of all ages who take great joy in sharing their latest favorite game, organizing a quick tournament or just talking about the latest fun they've had.
