“If it’s tabletop gaming, we’ll have it,” says Chad Uecker, convention director. “We [even] have designers coming that have games still in alpha testing — almost just pieces of paper that you’ll play with — to games that are coming out in a couple of months that you get to play a little early.”
You can even bring your own games if you’re eager to spread the gospel of an obscure favorite, and everything’s noob-friendly: Most non-tournament games will be preceded by a how-to-play lesson. “We’ve got people there who will help,” Uecker says. “We love bringing people into the hobby. There’ll be hundreds of games there, and no one knows all of them, so we want to make it accessible.”
The gaming starts at 10 a.m. and runs through Sunday evening at the Crowne Plaza DIA, 15500 East 40th Avenue. Three-day passes are $36 in advance or $42 at the door, and single-day passes start at $17 in advance. For tickets and more info, visit conclaveofgam-ers.org.
