Our goal is to provide the kind of game convention that we, as enthusiasts of the genre, have always wanted to attend. We want gamers of all skill sets and experience levels to come together and share their wealth of collective knowledge in a relaxed and fun environment. We encourage you as attendees to go outside of your comfort zone and discover something new. Most of all, we hope you’ll make some friends along the way.
