Information:

DieCon is a premier Midwest gaming convention held annually in the metro St. Louis area. Our focus is to support all aspects of the adventure gaming hobby; this includes but is not limited to Board Games(American and European Style), Collectable Card Games, Electronic Gaming, Live Action Role-playing Games, Miniature Games(Historical, Fantasy, and Science Fiction), and Tabletop Role-playing Games.

DieCon is currently held at the Gateway Center in Collinsville Illinois, the last weekend in June. (June 21-23, 2013). We host over 250 scheduled events that cover over 25,000 square feet over the three days of the convention. Drawing attendance from an 8 state region, the 2012 count was over 650 unique visitors.

I have been working hard to make DieCon another yearly event that boardgamers, as well as all gamers, look forward too.
We have tried to take the best parts of the traditional gaming conventions and combine it with the new open format of the Board Game convention. In 2012 we had a large open play area as well as a great board game library of over 150 - 200 games to check out. Plus plenty of volunteers to help teach you those hot, new games that are all the buzz. Combine this with tournaments and an area that focuses on local game designers and we think we have something that can make a very fun weekend. If there are any questions please let me know, and I am looking forward to some of you giving DieCon a chance to impress.



Planned events for DieCon 2013:
Board Games
• Scheduled events - Learn to play the hot and popular games with Atomic Squash
• Tournaments - Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, 7 Wonders and more.
• Board Game Library Sponsored by Atomic Squash with over 150 titles.

DieCon 2013 Board Game Room Update.

Stonemaier games will be a special guest. They will be running a scheduled game session of Viticulture Saturday Afternoon at DieCon. As a sponsoring company of the Board Game room at DieCon they have provided a couple of opportunities for you to walk away with Viticulture. There will be a copy in the board game library, a copy in the charity auction, and a copy to give away. They will also be excited to show off their new game Euphoria.

Stronghold Games has sponsored the Board Game Room at DieCon 2013. They will be providing a copy of Little Devils, Crazy Creatures of Dr. Gloom, Lost Temple, and Milestones to the DieCon Charity Auction. Not only that but they have contributed a second copy of each game for the Featured game area, where you can win these games just for trying them out.

I am in contact with many other game companies right now lining up some cool things to make board gaming a great convention within a convention.

Our charity auction is shaping up to be a great opportunity to give and receive all at the same time.

DieCon is this Weekend (June 21-23)
At this time we have over 300 scheduled events from Magic to Pathfinder, from Warhammer 40k to Settlers of Catan.

While the convention has always had great RPG, Miniature, and CGG tracks. (Which is a reason itself to come to the convention). This years Board Game Track should be stronger than ever before. With the giveaways, open play space, library, and featured game program there will be plenty to do whether you are there to play board games all weekend or want a quick filler between sessions. The Board Game Room at DieCon will truely be a convention within a convention. I look forward to meeting some new faces so stop by and say Hello.

On the fence. Check out www.diecon.com

Thank to all of you and to the STL BoardGame Meetup for all its support for DieCon.

See you at the Convention and thank you for reading.
Jason
