Attendees may even demo their own games in the Proto-Alley, where convention goers will have a chance to try out the design. As a Proto-Alley particpant guests will have their own table and chairs to demo their games at, as well as promotion for their game.

The convention will also host a Catan qualifying tournament on Saturday March 30th. The winner receives an ‘A Game of Thrones Catan Bran Promo Card’ and a guaranteed seat at the 2019 Catan National Championship at EGLX in Toronto (airfare is not included).

The convention will take place in three rooms with a total of 12,928 square feet of gaming space combined. In addition, there will be food trucks on site for when hunger strikes. On Saturday, guests may enjoy morning coffee by Brewnetti Cafe, lunch by Urban Wood Fired Pizza, and dinner by Chickpea.
