Schedule of Events
Open Game Room
There will be plenty of scheduled events at Con in the Castle 2017. But the core of the convention is the Open Gaming. Our ever growing library of over 150 games will be available for use, and if past conventions are any indicator, guests will bring along some games of their as well.
So grab a game and find an open table. Whether in the Great Hall, the Raven's Roost Pub, the Library Game Room, or anywhere else on the grounds, you're sure to find the perfect spot to enjoy a good game!
Role Playing Games
Con in the Castle will feature a variety of role playing games. We will have scheduled sessions of Pathfinder, run by an Ohio Pathfinder Society approved gamemaster, as well as Dungeons & Dragons, Star Wars Edge of the Empire and several new systems.
And of course, no Ravenwood gaming convention would be complete without a late night game of Fiasco! or two. A complete schedule will be provided at check in.
It's no accident that Con in the Castle falls in the peak season in Hocking Hills.
In addition to the gaming goodness to be found at the con itself, all of the Hocking Hills outdoor activities will be available for those who would like to get out and see some nature!
Available activities include:
- Zip Lines & Canopy Tours
- Adventure Hiking
Additional fees may apply for excursions.
