Frequently Asked Questions

FallCon 37 is happening August 23-25, 2024 at the TELUS Convention Centre, Calgary.

You can play board games! Check out one of 1,200+ games from the shelves of the FallCon Game Library to play at an Open Gaming table or sign up for a Hosted Game. Playtest an unpublished game at Prototype Alley. Stop by and chat with the Exhibitors. Join the bidding during Saturday evening's perennial favourite event - the Live Auction.

A hosted game is a scheduled opportunity to play and/or learn a specific game for free. The person facilitating your hosted game may be one of the following:

  • A FallCon Game Host is a FallCon Volunteer teaching and moderating multiple tables of a specific scheduled board game.
  • A Guest Host is a host with specialized experience in particular games, such as RPGs, wargames, miniatures, and FallCon Classics.

We would love to have you join our ConCrew. Please check out our Volunteer at FallCon page for more details.

No, we do not have childcare services. However, our Downtown location is close to Olympic Plaza, the Riverwalk as well as the Calgary, Tower, the Zoo, the Science Centre and the National Music Centre.

FallCon is committed to reducing barriers and promoting access for all. We have partnered with our venue to make our convention more accessible for all gamers and their families.

Food and non-alcoholic beverages are permitted in the gaming area. Please protect the games, notify staff of any spills and dispose of garbage promptly. Neither alcohol, cannabis nor any illicit substance is permitted.

We are continuing to add titles to the library through donations from gamers like you! To offer games or to make a donation to the library, contact

RSVP for upcoming in person or online events on our FallCon Meetup page.

In person: Format is drop-in but start times for games varies. You can bring along a favourite game, or use the comments field to request a game you’d like to play. Another attendee may be able to bring and/or teach. Most of our events are presented by Game Hosts from FallCon.

Online: Online meetups typically start in Discord to divide into virtual tables (channels) to chat while playing online in (BGA). Both sites are free, but you will need to create a BGA account to play, and allow a few minutes to review our Discord server terms and conditions before your first gaming session.

You can update your name and address from your Tabletop.Events account. Click on your email address in the top right hand corner. Select Preferences & Settings and click the confirmation sent to you by email. You will now be able to edit your name or email address.

If you have purchased a badge, you can give the badge to someone once you are connected as friends in Tabletop.Events. Log into your Tabletop.Events account. Click your email address in the top right hand corner. Select Friends and search by name or email address. Click Give, then select the badge. They will receive an email notification and must log into Tabletop.Events to accept the badge. They will now be able to sign up for events and access their own schedule.

In order for them to sign up for events independently, you must "give" the badge to them. They require a Tabletop.Events account in order to manage their own badge. Send a friend request to someone else who has created an account with Tabletop.Events. They accept the friend request. The "Give to a Friend" action gives them the badge and the ability to choose their own events.

FallCon has an extensive game library onsite, so there is typically no need to bring personal games! However, if the library does not have the game available, or you have a copy with extras that you want to play, you can bring it to the convention. We recommend you label it or have your name and contact information inside. You bring a game at your own risk and will need to keep it with you, as it is considered a personal item. FallCon does not have any storage for personal items.
