PrairieCon is a non-profit corporation founded on the principle of improving the gaming community in Manitoba and getting like-minded individuals together for some wholesome fun.
PrairieCon XLI takes place:
Saturday, May 28, 9 am to midnight
Sunday, May 29, 9 am to 6 pm
The registration desk will be open at 8 am each day.
Please note that this year we have moved to Tabletop.events: a new registration system that uses badges to enter the convention and you use a ticket to participate in each game/event. A badge is the equivalent of your weekend registration fee and your ticket is the same as registering for a particular game.
Tickets will be free, but like you will need to pay for your badge to enter the event.
How much is a badge?
A full-weekend badge is $35 USD if you use tabletop.events to register and pay online.
You can pay in person at the event using cash for $50 CAN.
We strongly recommend you pre-register and use the online system to give you a better chance at getting into the games you want.
We have additional pricing for day passes and youth, please visit our fees and timelines page for more information.
When can I pay and start viewing games?
You can pay for your badge to view the current game list starting on May 7 at 7 pm.
Games will be continually added to the list after that date, so check back often!
When can I choose which games I want to play?
You can start getting tickets to the games on May 14 at 7 pm
This is an important time! Set your calendar, set an alarm and be ready, some games fill up very fast!
Can I run a game at PrairieCon?
Yes! We need more games! Anyone can submit a game to run, and there are incentives for you to do so!
Will the game auction happen this year?
You bet it is! This year the auction will be at 6 pm on Saturday, and we’ll run it until all games are gone, or we may shut it down early if we lose too many attendees back to games or other things.
I am a business/vendor and I want to book a table at PrairieCon, who do I contact?
