Otafest is Calgary’s Anime Themed Convention, happening at the Telus Convention Centre July 1 – 3
Last year there were over 9000 people that attended this event. FallCon is back and has been asked to handle what we do best: Boardgames. We are bringing more than 100 boardgames, focusing primarily on Anime/Asian themes. These games range from the complex games that the top gamers love to play down to the brand new player. Some of them are co-operative games where you play against the board and work with your fellow players. Competitive games are also available. All of the games are fun and will captivate your attention.
They can be played in a minute to several hours depending on the game. There are no scheduled events in the boardgame room, it’s just come in, sit down, and play for as long as you want. The event hours are Friday July 1st from 10am-Midnight, Saturday 10am-Midnight, and Sunday 10am-10pm.
The FallCon Ambassador team is on hand to help you find a game to play that suits your time frame and gaming level and to teach you how to play if you don’t know how. So even someone who doesn’t know any of these games can come in and have a good time. There is no cost associated directly with the boardgame room, it’s included as part of your entry fee to Otafest. If you’ve haven’t played a modern boardgame, prepare to be amazed at how far they have come from the days of Monopoly, Sorry, Life & Risk.Go to Otafest
