What we're about

Like playing modern board or card games? This is the group for you! COVID Update -Due to the close-contact nature of gaming, and following recommendations from the Provincial Medical Officers of Health, we have suspended in-person meetups until at least Stage 3 of Relaunch (https://www.alberta.ca/alberta-relaunch-strategy.aspx). Some online events will be held. Please follow FallCon’s facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FallConYYC/) to stay connected with our gaming community!

Whether you’ve just tried Wingspan, regularly take a Ticket to Ride or are just looking for something a bit different than Clue, Monopoly or Risk, our meetup welcomes all gamers!

At our meetups you can play games across a wide selection of themes and interests; as a family, in a group or head to head. You can try one of this year’s nominees for the internationally recognized Games of the Year (https://www.spiel-des-jahres.de/en/aktuelle-preistraeger-2020/). Or join in playing many of the games from BoardGameGeek’s hot lists including casual/ family games (https://boardgamegeek.com/familygames/browse/boardgame) and strategy games (https://boardgamegeek.com/browse/boardgame).

You can bring along a favourite game, or use the comments field to request a game you’d like to play. Another attendee may be able to bring and/or teach. Most of our events are presented by Game Hosts from our annual Convention FallCon (www.Fallcon.com (http://www.fallcon.com)). Hosts can help match you with great games and find other players. Format is drop-in but start times for games varies.

FallCon Presents: Online Board Game June Meetup

Online event

Are you tired of playing games by yourself? Are you finding it difficult to trade your own wheat for lumber? Have you recently found yourself talking to and yelling at your AI opponents? Or are you just looking for a new way to spend your time during this Covid Era? Then this is the place for you.

Please join us Saturday, June 19th from 12-5 pm to play some games online. This is the closest thing to playing board games with friends (new and old) when you can't be together in person.

Everyone is welcome! We will have people willing to host and teach games.

We will be using the following platforms:
Discord plus a Microphone for chatting. (https://discord.com) *FREE*
A Board Game Arena account (https://boardgamearena.com) *FREE*

Join us in the "Looking For Players" channel in our Discord server (https://discord.gg/ECfdEehHKD) on Saturday. If there is a game you'd like to play, pop it in the comments (or in the General Chat channel on Discord).

Hope to see you there!

Note:
Although the game choice isn't necessarily limited to Board Game Arena, we do recommend sticking with Board Game Arena unless all game participants have experience with another platform and know that their tech can support both the gameplay and the voice chat.
