We are pleased to announce the hosting of our 10th CastleCon on October 16–18, 2020.  CastleCon will be hosted over 3 days at the Best Western Plus Oshawa, located on 559 Bloor Street West. Two banquet halls are booked so you can enjoy a spacious gaming experience.

This exciting weekend will be dedicated to a mixture of gaming systems and styles: Eurogames, Wargames, Ameristyle, Role Playing Games, Miniatures, and Card Games. Come and enjoy a weekend away with friends old and new at CastleCon, proud to be returning for a 10th year.

Covid 19 Update:

We have been thinking long and hard about what would become of this year’s Convention over the past several months.
We have decided to try and bring a small virtual Con to those of you that want to celebrate CastleCon but knowing that an in person Con at this point is not in the cards. We know this decision is coming close to the Con but we were not sure how we or if we were going to try this until recently.
To that end we would like to invite you and your friends to CastleCon’s 10th anniversary online virtual Con. We have teasingly been referring to this as CastleCon 9.5 since we had hoped to bring you a very different 10th Anniversary Con if the pandemic hadn’t upset the apple cart.
We will be hosting a Discord Con. There will be no cost associated with this years Con. We will have a donation button available on our website should you wish to help with annual costs, like our website that we must pay, convention or not. Utilizing Discord’s useful, and hopefully familiar UI (at least it should be to many who have been using it to game online during Covid) we will run the Con for any interested in getting together and game.
This means that a large portion of the Con will be using Discord to facilitate game playing on other gaming platforms (like Tabletopia, Tabletop simulator, vassal, etc). We expect attendees would come to our Discord room and meet with other discord attendees to then move to one of the many Discord rooms we have setup. All the players would then head off to another platform to play games but have the advantage of Discord voice communication with their CastleCon partners while playing.
We are also hoping to have a few Discord rooms hosted at certain times by your CastleCon admins; for game reviews, game teaching sessions, and other various events. Perhaps a couple of RPG sessions as well.
The virtual Con would be largely unattended by admins (there are only three of us after all). This means that those who attend would be expected to be on their best behaviour, just as if you were at the physical Con. That’s not to say that the admins won’t be there just not all the time and not in every room.
We would ask that anyone interested in attending this virtual Con please reply to admin(at)castlecon(dot)net. That way we can gauge expected turnout.
We will in the coming weeks send out a Discord invite to those interested. We will also entertain questions as we are able at our email address.
