Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Join us for the second year of Oklahoma's board game convention! We had great feedback from last year, but the overwhelming response was, 'more of everything,' and that is our goal for 2019. TokenCon will be bigger and better! We have added an entire additional day, expanded the open gaming space in the main ballroom, and are inviting more special guests—all for the same 2018 price.
TokenCon will be once again be held at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Oklahoma City on Oct 4, 5 and 6, 2019. The hotel is situated just north of the airport on Meridian Ave. Attendance will be limited to 400 guests, who will get to experience 3 days of fantastic board gaming, access to vendors, and other surprises yet to be announced.
TokenCon is an extension of the Oklahoma Board Game Community's network of board game events around the Oklahoma City metro. Oklahoma Board Game Community (OKBGC) is known locally for hosting weekly and monthly events, attracting anywhere between 10-150 people, based on the venue and type of event. With 1,500 Facebook members and almost 3,000 MeetUp members, OKBGC is excited to deliver another TokenCon in response to the tremendous growth in Oklahoma board gaming.

|Seth's best known design is Eminent Domain, the first big kickstarter success, and the first game to use the deckbuilding mechanism in a game that's not just about building your deck. Eminent Domain currently has 3 expansions (Escalation, Exotica, and Oblivion), and the universe of Eminent Domain has been expanded with standalone titles as well, such as Microcosm (by Seth) and Battlecruisers (by another designer). Seth's first published title, Terra Prime, is coming back this year as Eminent Domain Origins in that universe. The Dice Hate Me contest winning entry Isle of Trains was co-designed by Seth, and an expansion for that is due to come out next year. Seth's latest title from TMG called Crusaders: Thy Will Be Done is on store shelves now and early reports from backers of the Deluxified version have been extremely positive.|
