The FallCon Gaming Society is pleased to announce that FallCon, the 31st annual Tabletop Gaming Convention, will take place Friday, September 21 through Sunday, September 23rd, in the gymnasium at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), in Calgary, Alberta.
FallCon aims to bring together families and friends around tabletop games to promote positive relationships and a strong sense of community. We invite anyone and everyone interested in (or curious about) tabletop games to join us. Bring your friends and family, and experience Western Canada’s largest Tabletop Gaming convention at this fun 3-day event.
FallCon 31 will host a plethora of vendors including local board game stores and cafes, board game publishers, designers and artisans in the industry. The convention supports Canadian board game design and invites attendees to check out the Prototype Test Play Area, where they can give feedback to Canadian game designers, and invites everyone to join us when we crown the 2018 Canadian Game Design Award (CGDA) winner right before the Auction, on Saturday, September 22nd.
FallCon is famous for its board game auction, where over 400 games are live-auctioned off to the highest bidder. Didn’t find the game you wanted in the auction? Check out the Sunday Flea Market where local gamers sell their lightly used games at bargain prices.
Local tabletop gamers will run ‘host games’ were attendees can sign-up to learn and play the hottest new games with other like-minded friends. Some of these ‘hosted games’ will even have exclusive prizes for the winners.
As always, FallCon opens their library of over 1200 games for Open Gaming all weekend. Our FallCon Game Ambassadors are on hand to help you select the game that would most interest you, and teach the game so you can get into the fun without having to spend time learning rules.
FallCon is a non-profit organization, run entirely by volunteers from the Calgary area. The group is united in their passion for tabletop gaming. What began as an annual weekend of playing board games in the ballroom at the University of Calgary – run by a handful of students – has expanded as interest in the hobby grows in Calgary and area. While FallCon continues to get bigger and better every year, the mission of the FallCon Gaming Society remains the same: we believe playing games with friends and family make better communities, families and relationships.
More information will be coming soon. Early bird tickets are expected to be available starting July 1, 2018. Thank you for your interest in FallCon, and we can’t wait to game with you in September 2018.
