Register for FallCon 29

If you didn’t get into the games available for pre-signup, never fear.  There is the Open Gaming Library, where most of you will spend most of your time playing for the weekend.  It is more than likely that the games you were going to sign up for are in our Open Gaming Library, and you can sign it out at your leisure, gather your favourite people to your table, and get a game teacher to teach you the game to boot.

At FallCon you choose from more than 1400 games, using your badge like you would a library card.  There are easily 2000+ new boardgames published annually – Gencon unveils 600+ and Essen 800+ games. My favorite aspect of FallCon is the Open Gaming Library.  Our FallCon librarian and volunteers diligently select and acquire what we believe to be the best games as they become available in Canada or when possible get them donated directly from publishers or local sponsors.  A little known fact is that the FallCon library acquires and sells hundreds of games a year, keeping our collection current and relevant to our gaming community.  An also, little known fact, is that FallCon has ZERO budget to buy games.  Pretty impressive for a board game convention boasting 1400 games in its library, right?  All games are either loaned to our library, donated to our library, or games that are donated are sold to buy games from our wishlist.

But wait, you say, there were more events scheduled last year!  Even with the 220 scheduled events we had last year that you signed up for at the door, with 660 people, people still spent most of their quality time at FallCon in Open Gaming.  It can be tough to leave a game you’re in the middle of to go play your scheduled game, and we’ve struggled with no-shows, or harder, teaching 3 tables at once.  We are committed to you having the best possible experience at FallCon.  Gaming is changing and evolving.  Games we hosted in the past at FallCon could last up to 8 hours.  We still have some of those epic events at FallCon, but we find most people want to try new games they don’t own yet rather than commit to just a few for the entire weekend.  Most modern boardgames are meant to be played in less than two hours.  You can do the math, that’s a lot of events for a lot of people.  Open Gaming means you get to create your own events, any game you wish from our library, and still have it taught to you. Win win.

We proudly present our acquisitions since FallCon 28.  Make your wishlist of games to try in Open Gaming in before you come to FallCon, and plan accordingly, if you are bent that way, which I am.

Note from your webmistress – The list below is definitely not the complete list.  I probably even have duplicates in there somewhere.  It is an editing nightmare.  It’s a shot at a moving target.  I like to carefully catalog and add each game to our online library, get some info about it, and insert pictures of pretty game boxes you can click from the post.  I even recruited new muscle for the endeavour (thank you muscles!), and decided that this could be a work in progress.  Come back here periodically to see updates…it’s probably going to be updated 100 times before we get to FallCon.  It could even be fun to watch, like stop-motion animation.  A labour of love brought to you by Calgary’s most passionate boardgamers.
