Annual tabletop gaming convention returns to Oshawa
Now in its 4th year, this time commemorating the 100th anniversary of WWI with its “World at War” theme, the convention provides its guests with a great opportunity to get away and enjoy their favorite, and many new games face to face with other gaming enthusiasts including many from right here on the Axis and Allies.org forums!
The convention is an annual celebration of tabletop gaming held in Oshawa, Ontario every September. This weekend long event is host to tabletop games of all kinds, from your traditional (and not-so traditional) board games, card and dice games, to tabletop miniatures games; complete with a very healthy dose of a number of versions of Axis and Allies being played on numerous tables.
This convention is a smaller, casual event meant to create a weekend of fun and gaming with friends both old and new, held in a historic and atmospheric building. Come for a day or for the entire weekend! In either case, come for the fun of tabletop gaming. Classic family games, euro games, “ameritrash”, war games, miniatures, card games and dice games; play it all! With an average attendance of 60-70 gamers per day (in previous years) you can be sure to find a game available or someone else who is looking to play.
The convention boasts a huge public, free to use, games library of well over 100 games (sponsored by a number of gaming companies) available throughout the entire event. In addition to the open gaming tables, many special events are scheduled including a “Midnight Munchkin Madness” event complete with prizes, several miniatures tables (this year including a WWI Trench Warfare table in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of WWI), door prizes and a NEW Play-and-Win selection of games.
Located right next door to the convention is the Ontario Regiment Military Museum, home to a large number of WW2 pieces, most notably their collection of working Tanks!
