Winter is long and chilly – what better way to spend a January weekend than with great people playing tabletop games?
SnowCon is Maine's well-loved annual tabletop event where a true community gathers to share their love for games. SnowCon features board games, role-playing games, card games and miniatures. Players of all experience levels are welcome. Plus, vendors are there to cater to your ruthless creativity!
We’re proud that SnowCon is a truly family-friendly event. We’ve had kids as young as 9 running games for other kids and parent-child games to help grow the love of games for all ages.
You'll find a good many games on the schedule as attendees submit them. These are 2 and 4 hour games that you sign up to play by "buying" a ticket. To check out the schedule, click on the "Attend Menu" then "Events Schedule".
Attendees are also welcome to BYOGame and look for players in our open-gaming section. This is a large section of tables reserved for open gaming. Open gaming is free form... no schedule, no reserved seats. Maybe it's a standard game that you just love playing over and over. Maybe it's a new game just received as a gift or a fresh Kickstarter delivery. It could even be a wild, unique mash-up (ever played Apples Against Humanity, Catan Twister, or Scrabbalderdash?). SnowCon has also proudly served as a beta testing ground and launch event for several new games so you may find yourself playing the next big thing – sometimes before it’s even a thing!
1) First, purchase a badge to attend. SnowCon will be held on Saturday, January 18 and Sunday, January 19, 2020. Badges are available for single day or full weekend play. (Single-day badges will be a available later in December.)
2) Plan your gameplay. To reserve a seat in a scheduled game, you "buy a ticket" for the game. Tickets are free - it's just the way that this system manages schedules. Be sure to reserve your spot early though — games fill up! Open gaming is just that, open. Look for a players wanted sign and join in.
3) Want to host a game? GMs submit their games right on this site. Once approved, and once sign ups open, players can begin signing up to play. We can't wait to see you at the table!
