About Ettin Con

Ettin Con started in July 2015 in a cosy church hall in Katoomba as a place to meet new players, discover new games, and enjoy our hobbies by sharing them.
Our next event saw twice as many of us in a venue twice as large, playing for twice as long, and it just keeps getting bigger and better!
(Our mascot is the Ettin, a two-headed giant, because our twice-yearly event began as a double-birthday party for the founders)

Board Games

We've come a long way since monopoly. Bring your favourite board game along to share, or even try something different from our library of public games.< /p>

Roleplaying Games

More than just Dungeons and Dragons! Register a table to run a game , or just a seat or two to play at one of our RPG sessions.

Card Games

Magic? Uno? Card Wars? Bring your deck, shuffle into your seat, and deal us in!

Video Games

We haven't forgotten you screen-heads. Enjoy our consoles together or bring your portable device with some multiplayer games!


The next Ettin Con is never far away!
