FallCon 32 (2019) Wrap-Up

FallCon is an annual Calgary boardgaming convention. This year was number 32! It's 28 hours of gaming goodness that includes hosted events, a massive game library and open gaming area, an auction and flea market, merchants, and even has an escape room and an Artemis Bridge Simulator area.

Before going further, let me just say how great the FallCon team is. Every team member I interacted with was happy to be there. Every game host taught with patience and enthusiasm. From Brent's warm welcome at the door that first night to the "see you next year" as I left Sunday afternoon, everybody was smiling and helpful. And the fellow attendees were similarly great. I've yet to have an unpleasant experience at the table (knocks on wood), and you start to recognize people from year to year. The venue is also great—easy to get to, plenty of room, and a few food options nearby. It's just a great way to spend a weekend.

FallCon 31 (2018) Wrap-Up

FallCon is an annual boardgaming convention that takes place in Calgary, Alberta, over three days (Friday night, all day Saturday, and Sunday morning/afternoon; 28 hours total). This year was FallCon 31. I haven't been able to attend FallCon for a while, but I'm so happy to be back and don't plan on missing another year, if I can help it. Being the “game guy” in the family, I almost never have opportunities to play games I didn’t purchase myself. So FallCon is a rare opportunity to experience new games first hand.

A huge thank you to the FallCon committee and volunteers for making the convention possible!
