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)
Modern games have come a long way since monopoly or snakes & ladders. Bring your favourite board game along to share, or even try something different from our library of public games.
Magic? Uno? Card Wars? Netrunner? Dominion? Bring your deck, shuffle into your seat, and deal us in!
We haven't forgotten you screen-heads. Enjoy our consoles together or bring your portable device with some multiplayer games!
The next Ettin Con is never far away!
