HoliCON is here again!

Join us for 12 hours of tabletop gaming fun. HoliCON is a day for us to celebrate our love of board games, get together with friends (old and new) and play some great games.

For 2019, we're back at the Ocala Hilton, located at 3600 SW 36th Ave, Ocala, FL 34474, from 10am – 10pm. You can come anytime, play a few games, drop in and out, or stay for the whole day. A library of 150+ games will be available to play. There will be games available for purchase as well.

We’ll be posting on social media all day. We hope you’ll tag us with @MeepleMovers and use the hashtag #holicon2019.
