Welcome to Cardboard Caucus!

Central Iowa's newest tabletop convention! This will be our second year and we are hoping to make it even greater than the first! We want to provide an event that will give you a great place to sit down with friends (or maybe someone new!?) and play some great games. We are VERY excited to be returning a tabletop convention to Des Moines.


Badges will be available soon - check back soon or watch our website and/or social media pages for updates

What sets us apart as the BEST convention?

You! You being there is what makes our convention the best convention around!

If you have ideas you'd like to share to help us make the convention better for you - please reach out to us at

Library and Play-to-Win

We are excited to be bringing back Board Game Wagon to provide our open gaming library. They will have a selection of more than 1500 games for you to choose from (click on the "1500 games" to get their BBG list of all the games)! We will also have play-to-win games (play a game to get entered into a drawing to win a copy of that game).


ALL children will need to be registered. Children 10 and under can can register for a free kids badge or get a regular badge. Note: Kids badges cannot be used to checkout games or be entered into the Play-to-Win drawing.


The best place to park is on the north end of the building, where there is a separate entrance for our convention!
