The idea is to keep it simple, allowing players to show up, grab a table, pull out a title that they want to play, and start gaming.
Bring along your favourites!
Bring along your own games to play! We want you to play what you want to play! Please make sure your games are labelled or identified in some way as belonging to you so they don’t get mixed up with other games.
We have a Geeklist on Boardgamegeek.com so attendees can find players for games if they would like to schedule play. Also, during KingCon we have signs that you can set up at your table that say you are looking for players. It is a great way to meet new gamers!
KingCon will have an extensive library of games on loan from our local gamers that attendees are welcome to sign out and use while they are at the convention. These games have been provided on loan from several of our local gamers out of their personal collections. Please treat all games with care and respect. All games borrowed from the Lending Library are to remain in the main hall at all times.
To sign out a game from our library, speak to one of our Command Centre volunteers. You will be asked to sign your name and the time on our sign-out sheet as well as provide a piece of identification or collateral (e.g., Driver’s license, Student ID, health card, etc.). If you don’t have an “official” ID, other types of collateral can be considered on a case-by-case basis. The ID or collateral must have the name or some sort of identifying information of at least one person who will be playing the game who will take responsibility for making sure the game is returned intact and on time.
Games should be brought back after one play or one hour (whichever takes longer) to give other people an opportunity to play – please do not “monopolize” a game. If you sign out a game we expect it to be returned before we close up for the night. There is no overnight lending. We expect all games returned with all pieces and components organized and ready to go for the next players. When you return a game, be sure to check it back into the library with one of our Command Centre volunteers.
Play to Win!
Would you like to win a new game or two? We are offering an interesting way for you to try to do just that! We will have selected games available to play throughout the convention and on Sunday afternoon we will randomly draw from those who have played each game and that attendee will take that game home!

Need space for a game?
Got a huge game that never gets tabled due to space? Bring it along to KingCon. We’ll find a way to accommodate your gaming space needs so you can sit down and start playing! Any questions about table space requirements or other board game issues should be directed to the Command Centre.
Looking to learn how to play a game? We can help!
Do you have a game that you want to learn to play? We will have volunteers available to teach a variety of games during KingCon! Please check at the Command Centre and we will connect you with someone who can help!
