    The Field Marshal Gaming Convention, now in its 6th year, 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, modern) board games, card and dice games to miniatures gaming.

    This is a family friendly event that is meant to create a weekend of fun and gaming with friends, old and new held in a historic and atmospheric building.

    Come for a day, or come for the entire weekend – in either case, come for the fun of tabletop gaming!

    Date: August 27-28, 2016
    Location: RCAF 420Wing, 1000 Stevenson Road North, Oshawa, Ontario, Canada

    Slight hiccup! It appears the link portion of our paypal code did not get saved to the registration page. That has now been fixed.

    Carry on!



  • August date… cool!



  • I have the time off and I WILL BE THERE!! I’m going to bring my 2 Global games and the 1999 and 2000 Euro and Pac. It would be fun to get in a game of 1939 World War
    Tanks
    S.A.

    Good to hear SA, we will be playing Global at the bunker on Friday… you’re more than welcome to crash at my place for the weekend as well.

    Tournament? Yeah … tournament.

    Details to be announced, however, this will be something everyone can participate in casually over the course of the entire event weekend, with prize(s).

    No, it will not be an Axis and Allies Tournament, sorry. We lack the time and resources for that sort of grand endeavour at this point (as was discussed at great length with several people who were looking to make it happen if at all possible last year).



  • How many days and counting? I will bring my G40 and some small boards

  • My alternator went in my car this morning on my way to work. That will scrub my plans for going to F.M.G.'s game con. This will be the 3rd year I’ve missed it, I am so bummed out it sucks

    No problem SA, I was looking forward to seeing you again, but I understand (can’t drive to Canada without an alternator). Next year’s convention will be even better… hope to see you then.



  • I hope there will be many pictures

  • I just uploaded 19 videos I shot while at the convention. You can view them all on my YouTube channel “Cliffside Bunker”.



  • Cool vid.'s I’ve played the 42 a few times, Japan turns into a monster, Russia can go on the offensive, Germany has a tough time. We split the U.K.'s income, they need help in the Pac., if you played as one income that might make a difference. America needs to dump in the Pac.
    I cant wait to see more video’s
