Frequently Asked Questions

FallCon 35 will be August 26-28, 2022 at the TELUS Convention Centre.

In person meetups resume in June & online meetups continue! Watch for dates on our FallCon Meetup page!

In order to encourage gaming for all, in person meetups will feature dates with mandatory masks and dates when masks are optional. Masks and sanitizers will be available. Please check details!

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

Although we can't get together at meetups and the convention, many of our volunteers and attendees have been finding alternative ways to game.
  • Many games in your collection may have a solo mode included in the rule book, or there may be a fan-made solo mode posted on BoardGameGeek.
  • Many board games also have mobile apps in the Apple or Google Play stores.
  • Finally, both paid sites like Steam and (mostly) free sites like Board Game Arena also have board games you can play solo or remotely with friends and family.
We are continuing to add titles to the library! In 2020, we added nearly 100 games. This includes new titles as well as additional classics or favourites we've missed. Many were also added through donations from gamers like you! To offer games or to make a donation to the library, contact library@fallcon.com.
There are many ways you can contribute, both at the convention and year-round. If you are interested in helping with online meetups now, or in being part of planning events for later this year, we'd love to hear from you. You can also contact us if you'd like to join our volunteer mailing list. Reach out at volunteering@fallcon.com.

If you have any last minute questions, please contact us and we'll try to answer your questions as soon as possible. From all of us on the FallCon, we very much look forward to greeting you at FallCon 35. For those of you driving from Medicine Hat, Edmonton, Regina and even further afar – safe travels!
