FallCon is a non-profit organization that has presents an annual board game convention in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in the Fall for the past 3 decades. FallCon is a 100% volunteer-run organization, and what began as a yearly weekend of playing board games has expanded to a number of external hosted events and our annual convention.
The FallCon Conventions' prime focus is providing you a unique opportunity to experience a wide range of organized, well-run and moderated events.
We recognize that there exists an abundance of games in the marketplace but in keeping with what makes us unique, we narrow the selection to those titles that are:
-Recognized as best in class
-Highly playable and interesting themes
-Fun, challenging and social
-Something that we (the organizers) would want to play ourselves
The variety ranges from “out of print” classics to the “latest and greatest” boardgames and miniature systems. Some are complex but most are easy for anyone to play.
Our secondary focus is creating a friendly and inviting convention. We expect this of our moderators (many who we game with) and together, welcome beginners to join us, learn some new games and develop new (or renew) gaming friends that you can connect with throughout the year. Are you game?
Our meetup group presents free board game events open to the public, to promote board gaming in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We also encourage people to bring their friends and family for a weekend of board gaming at the FallCon Convention, celebrating the best of unplugged gaming.
