About Ettin Con

Ettin Con started in July 2015 in a cosy church hall in Katoomba as a place to meet new players, discover new games, and enjoy our hobbies by sharing them.
Our next event saw twice as many of us in a venue twice as large, playing for twice as long, and it just keeps getting bigger and better!
(Our mascot is the Ettin, a two-headed giant, because our twice-yearly event began as a double-birthday party for the founders)

Holy Uncontrollable Chaos, Batman!

Holy Uncontrollable Chaos, Batman!

A game of Fiasco where everybody is Batman. Or rather, everybody is a version of Batman. So, the campy, benign Adam West Batman can rub shoulders with the rasping, snarling Christian Bale iteration, while Michael Keaton's Batman stares creepily at Kilmer and Clooney's versions. With bats coming into conflict, plans unraveling, & chaos growing, Gotham city is about to have a weird night!

3-5 players 3 hrs Fiasco: Bats
