WagonCon 2016! 

The Best "Dam" Gaming Convention in the Columbia Gorge!

Four score and a few months ago, four friends decided it would be a "dam" good idea to run a gaming convention in The Dalles, Oregon. Why did we think this? Well, we are Crazy Gamers™ of course! Thus the idea of WagonCon was born. We really do hope (please, really please!) that all of you will join us April 1st, 2nd and 3rd in The Dalles Oregon for WagonCon 2016! Now with more 100% Wagons!

Two and a half days of Role-Playing Games, Board Games, Miniature War Games and Collectible Card Games.

Risks and challenges

Gaming Conventions have a great deal of hidden costs, but the largest up front costs are the venue. The WagonCon 2016 Kickstarter has two main goals

1. Ensure there are enough people interested in attending a convention held in the Columbia Gorge.

2. Assist in offsetting the venue fee to hold convention.

All of the members know we won't come near that the first year, perhaps not in the first five years. With that said, we are still committed to putting on the best Gaming Convention we can with our current resources.

Our major risk is finding out there just isn't enough interest in the Columbia Gorge (and surrounding area) to support the convention. We are using the Kickstarter format to assist in judging the real interest.

Please come join us in our love of all things gaming!
