We are pleased and excited to announce CastleCon!

CastleCon is a three-day gaming convention to be held in Bowmanville, Ontario (which is about 30 minutes east of Toronto along the 401) on the weekend of October 21-23, 2011.


What can you expect from this gaming convention? The exciting weekend will be dedicated to a mixture of board gaming; including Eurogames, Wargames, Card Games and Ameritrash!

There will be something we call Echoes of Essen! We are pleased to be partnered with Stronghold Games, which will be allowing us access to games they are delivering to the Essen Spiel on the very same weekend! Be the first to try these hot new releases before anyone else in North America. Even better, each of the games, after being demoed, will be raffled as door prizes! We will be hosting a Game Auction on Saturday, so be sure to check that out as well!


The URL for castleCon is www.castlecon.net

Doc, I'm registered!!

May I suggest you change the header to say "CastleCon 2011 - Bowmanville ON" so folks can quickly see where the con will be held?

That is very close to home for me. I will check my calendar and make a decision before I go to GenCon. I like that something is going on in Ontario. Thank you.

Do you feel that there will be a disproportianate representation of wargames vs. eurogames or is it too early to tell?

I went out there in search of experience, to taste and to touch and to feel as much, as a man can before he repents...

We've contacted our provider and they are working on a solution. Sorry.

We will update when it's back up again!

I would assume that there will be more euro's/ameritrash then wargames, but you'll be able to find either.

Yeah sorry folks about the link, hopefully it will be back up shortly.

I am both a wargamer and a eurogamer. As Greig indicated I would expect to have both attending but eurogamers might have the edge.

Both should feel free to attend and that the rooms for gaming (there are two of them) will be available 24 hours a day for late night/early risers and to have games setup and left overnight. This will accommodate wargamers in particular for the longer games.

Any plans for a no-ship math trade happening at Castle Con? Adam and I are both trying to make plans to attend.

Thanks again for teaching us Troyes at TABScon.

Hey, congrats to CastleCon for making your attendance numbers and officially being a "go"!

I thought this event would prove popular with folks and it's good to see that people are jumping at the chance. You'll be sold out in no time now, I bet.

Glad you are willing to get past this and hope others can do the same. Everyone is always a stranger at first in any situation. I didn't know anyone who shared my interest and passion for gaming. Now, thanks to sites like this, and gaming events, I've met a whole bunch of great people and have developed some very good friendships over the past few years.

Looking forward to meeting you at the Con!

I won't know anyone either, but I am sure that will change by the end of the weekend, or at least I hope so! I am greatly looking forward to this! Thanks to the organizers!
