What's YOUR game?

We love all kinds of games at SnowCon. Long games, short games, classic games, new games, hard games, easy games. Minis, cards, board, tile, dice, RPGs, CCGs and everything in between. And if you finally got the game of your dreams and just need friends to play it NOW, we invite you to bring it along and grab an open table! If you're not sure what you like, we have a vast game library open for loan on the main floor, included with your regular admission.

We're Taking Off!

Seven is a pretty big year. You start getting your grown-up teeth. Your spelling and math improves. You aren't the little kid on the block any more ... Well, we're moving out of the basement and into a big venue this year! The Cross Insurance Center gives us more space for vendors, tourneys, special events and, of course, lots and lots and lots of games! We hope you're as excited as we are!

Join the ConVersation.

We thought we were just making a gaming convention, but we spawned a community! We are constantly impressed by the numbers of people who bring their families, of pre-teens running great RPGs, of groups who have kept on the campaign long after the Con is done ... Come join the SnowConMunity on Facebook and be part of the discussion!

Join the gang!
