OrcaCon is running a Kickstarter campaign in the hopes to get some funding for their 2016 show. They’ve got just a little over a week left and are still just a bit short of their goal. The show, which will be held in Everett, WA. on January 8-10, looks to bring together all sorts of analog gamers (I.E. – card and board games, along with RPGs, and the like) in a fun and friendly environment. Check out the campaign, and hopefully they’ll see you at the show in January.

Our Mission Statement:
OrcaCon is a games and geek convention, focusing on analog games. This includes: board and card games, role-playing games, and miniature games. OrcaCon is focused on creating a safe and welcoming space for promoting the tabletop games hobby, supporting diversity in tabletop games, and building a community of both novice and experienced game players.
The inception of OrcaCon first came about during a rather fun gaming session at Dragonflight 2013. Our group of friends found ourselves reminiscing about the many good times that were had many years ago at Dreamcon. We all wished for there to be another gaming convention in Snohomish County, as the other nearby options required a bit of a drive to Seattle. Thus, OrcaCon was born!
We are working with the Holiday Inn Downtown Everett, as they’ve hosted many fantastic conventions in the past.
