Adirondacon Tabletop Gaming Convention

Returning in 2019



In 2017, our local gaming group Adirondack Tabletop Gamers and Game Developers decided to celebrate International Tabletop Day by gathering at local locations for a full day of gaming, and the response was great, but we were hopping all over town, and we felt very cramped in a few spots. So, in addition to inspiring hosting our own convention, Adirondacon, we decided to do an International Tabletop Day event. In 2018, we had a great response, so we're happy to do it again. Just a one day, 12 hour event, with plenty of tables and space for anyone who would like to join us. April 27, 2019 is the date we're aiming for, but we need to get contracts in place before we make the official announcement. As things are set in stone, we'll make announcements here and on our social media pages.

Adirondacon... Moving on to Year 3

In October of 2017, we held our first Adirondacon Tabletop Gaming Convention with about 160 attendees and in September of 2018 we had about 200 attendees. We're hoping that our numbers continue to grow. We usually have a schedule of games with volunteer Game Masters and open gaming with access to our large lending library. To add to the fun, we have several door prize giveaways and a raffle to benefit our chosen charity, Extra Life. We invite vendors to join us and usually have a bargain table where attendees can sell/barter games they no long want.

Extra Life Goals

Last year at Adirondacon we raised $802 dollars. This year we set a goal of $2000. In the Spring, at ADK Tabletop Day: The Spring Roll, we raised a little over $400, at Adirondacon 2, we raised 1009 dollars.As of November, we are at $1442, $558 short of our goal. You can help team Adirondack Tabletop Gamers out by making a donation directly through their Extra Life Page, we would be grateful!

Extra Life is a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital fundraising program within the gaming community to help treat sick kids. Learn more about Extra Life.
