About The Event

Poster for Winter 2022

In 2020 and 2021, we temporarily moved our convention online to protect players during the pandemic. When it's safe, we'll operate as a hybrid convention, simultaneously running offline and online sessions for people both in person and remotely, locally and internationally.
Your mode of participation should be based around your own comfort levels in conjuction with governmental restrictions.
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.

The scabrous yokels from the nearby village told you about the tower on the hill - haunted, shunned, and anathema. Why are you going there?

Play as the grandkids of a mischevious grandparent looking to make a daring (and entirely unnecessary) escape from their retirement home!

There was a wizard who sadly, sought to fix things gone badly. Thoughts forbidden did he seek, to devils he learned to speak...

Run Your Game

If you're a game-master, a demonstrator, a designer wanting to playtest, or something different, we'll do our best to find you a space to help you do your thing! Running a game for us also counts towards volunteer hours, earning your ticket alongside tiered GM rewards, once enough players have registered! For more detail on what we expect from our GMs, please see our GM Guidelines.

Once submissions close, if you'd still like to list a game of any kind and find some players to join you, please join our Discord server and use the #looking-for-players channel.
