About The Event

Poster for Winter 2020

This year only, we've moved our convention online to protect players during the pandemic.
Since 2015, we've been hosting events where people can meet to share, explore & enjoy social games of all kinds on tabletops and screens. Originally one day twice a year, we're now a whole weekend each Winter. All are welcome within our code of conduct for a safe and fun experience, whether you're already in the gaming world, or just curious about what people play these days. We have plenty of tables available, and each day is full of opportunities! If you're curious about our name, or how it began, click here.
