2014 Game Design Finalists Selected

FallCon Gaming Society - Monday, July 14, 2014
As scheduled, our Canadian Game Design Award judges submitted their Video Evaluations in late June and we're very pleased to announce the results. 

Out of 21 game designs submitted, the following 5 game designs have been advanced to the Finals:

It was truly a banner year in terms of submissions with very stiff competition to get into the final round. There are some heavy hitting designers in the list above. Congratulations to the finalists and best of luck to those who submitted games in the contest.

We're now in the beginning of the next round of evaluations with our friends at Snakes and Lattes in Toronto. We're very much looking  forward to announcing the winner for the 2014 Canadian Game Design Award at FallCon in October. In the meantime, it's never to early to start planning for next year!

2014 Registration Now Open

FallCon Gaming Society - Friday, July 11, 2014

As many of you know, we opened up our early bird registration last weekend and the response has been great so far. At time of posting, we already have over 50 registrants and most of them are Weekend Passes. I'm also happy to see more and more people taking advantage of our Family Pass.

In addition, as of 11:30am this morning, the Auction Manager has gone live. This means that every registered pass holder can allocate up to 10 games to their auction slots, but only until the 400 auction slots have been filled. We expect the 400 slots to be fully allocated to Early Bird registrants by the end of the weekend. So if you haven't registered yet and want to sell some games at the auction, NOW is the time to register.

FallCon: 7 Days Later

FallCon Gaming Society - Saturday, October 05, 2013

We're still buzzing from last weekend. Another record year for attendees and another record year for family passes. We hope you're still buzzing too: eager to let us know what we did right and what could be done better for next year. 

Yesterday, if you're part of our newsletter subscribers you would have received a link to a survey we run annual. Amazingly, in 24 hrs we've already received 83 responses. And that's with some of you having some issues with the link we sent. For whatever reason, some folks are getting a blank page when they attempt to navigate to the survey page on our website. I suspect browser issues for the most part so I'm going to provide another clean link here that should work for everyone. 

As a reminder, you have until Monday October 14th, 2013 to fill the survey in order to be eligible for the draw for the $100 gift certificate at the game retailer of your choice. Best of luck to all survey participants. We'll share the results and the winner of the draw on Monday October 21st.

A Bevy of Choices

FallCon Gaming Society - Monday, September 23, 2013
Game Libraryt

We're proud to present two wonderful examples of the tyranny of choice. First, the FallCon 26 Game Library List

Lovingly (some might say "obsessively") assembled by Darren and his crack squad of game library assemblers, this year's offering of over 690 games is certain to make you go "wow...that's a lot of games." This of course, is a good reminder that with your pass, you can stop in at the library and sign out any game you wish over the course of the weekend. Our crew of gaming ambassadors may not be able to teach every game in the library, but I'm guessing we'd come pretty darn close to that mark. 

Secondly, is the food concession menu for the weekend. As usual, the Commonwealth Centre will have their cash concession open during most of the convention. We've also arranged for free water service throughout the weekend. We do ask that no outside food be brought into the convention space as that is one of our venue rental conditions. 

FallCon should provide you plenty of opportunities to chose your love and to love your choice. :)
