Schedule of Events
Open Game Room
There will be plenty of scheduled events at Con in the Castle 2015. 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!
