Saturday, March 16, noon to 10 pm
Central Community Centre – 529 4th street, Brandon, MB


That’s right, our Spring Gamesday is coming up fast, and that means PrairieCon is also coming up soon!!

The Spring GamesDay is our last Free GamesDay before our main gaming weekend event takes place in May!

Bring a board game or two, or just come on down and play some games!


PrairieCon GamesDays are fun, free events where anyone can come by and drop in to play some tabletop games. Bring your board games, run a D&D Game, or bring some minis and run/play a game!  Feel free to bring your own games, or you are free to just show up, and ask to join in with other players.

The PrairieCon 43 theme is…

The PrairieCon 43 theme is…

DINOSAURS!

Just because we couldn’t doesn’t mean we should, but we did it anyway!

Of course, the actual artwork is coming soon and will be 1000x better than this costume, but if you happen to have one of these costumes at home, let us know!

What is the PrairieCon Theme?

Every year, the committee likes to put a theme to PrairieCon. This sets the tone of the artwork and the look and feel of our social media for the year. This also sets the tone for our many puns over the year. 🙂

Game masters are encouraged to incorporate the theme in their games as much as possible, but it’s not mandatory.

This year being dinosaur-themed, players and GMs are invited to use their imagination to include and wonder how Dinosaurs can be incorporated into their games! Many board games already have Dinosaurs, so do a dig for your old classics! If it’s an RPG, all it takes is the imagination. Sometimes it is hard to incorporate the theme unless you think really creatively about it. For example, dinosaurs are already at the heart of every car racing game if you think about it!

So, there you have it, Dinosaurs!

Stay tuned for the artwork, we’ll post it as soon as it’s ready, we’ve seen a glimpse and the first draft is already pretty dam awesome.

THANK YOU

THANK YOU


Please give us your feedback on how we can make PrairieCon EVEN BETTER by clicking the shiny red button on the right.


First, we need to start by thanking Robyn Lourie for creating our artwork this year!

Every year we have an amazing volunteer donate their time to create some amazing artwork for us. For our 42nd convention, Robyn did a fantastic job!

You can check out more of her art and our previous art in our artwork archive.


Second, we need to thank our Feature hosts: Nick Brown, Toymasters and Dallas Ewen

Nick Brown put in countless hours this year creating and hosting our Dungeons and Dragons Tournament: the Nightmare.  We want to thank Nick for stepping up this year and making sure our D&D tournament tradition lived on. It was an absolute blast!

The Catan Tournament would not have happened without Toymasters enabling the entry with Asmodee, and we’re very thankful that Amber was able to add another amazing feature event!

And finally, we have to thank Dallas for hosting our Auction once again and making it another great experience!


Finally, we have to give thanks to our Sponsors and Vendors

The items in the raffle are donated entirely by our sponsors and vendors, the raffle ticket sales go towards helping with the venue costs of Prairiecon.

Our sponsors and vendors are the local game stores in Manitoba, and we want to encourage you all to check out our sponsor list below and support local at these amazing sponsor and vendor locations!


Finally, of course, thanks to all of you for attending, having a great time, and giving us your feedback!
