ConFABulous provides a great place to game with LGBTQ+ people and their friends! Burl Zorn is back coordinating the game room and curating the huge assortment of games for people to play. Our game room will be open the entire weekend, with hundreds of different board games, card games, and video games available! You can game all day and far into the night. We’ll also provide snacks and beverages in the game area for those too busy to visit the ConSuite.
Most games are organized on the spot, by convention members, but we’ll have some great structured opportunities for play at ConFabulous:
- A Magic: the Gathering tournament is planned.
- We are also scheduling roleplaying events for every day of the con. We’re featuring games that are easy to learn and scenarios that will be engaging and fun for LGBTQ+ fans.
