What are FallCon and FallCon 365?
our status as a non-profit organization, what we do, and why we do it.
FallCon is a non-profit organization that has presented an annual board game convention in Calgary in the Fall for the past 30 years. FallCon is a volunteer-run organization, and what began as a yearly weekend of playing board games has expanded in attendance and the number of events we host. Our latest expansion includes a meetup group called FallCon 365 that presents free board game events open to the public, to promote board gaming in Calgary. We encourage people to bring their friends and family for a weekend of boardgaming at FallCon, celebrating the best of unplugged gaming.
FallCon’s 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.
