JimCon is a tabletop gaming convention, pure and simple. It was born out of our love of games and the joy we get from socializing and getting people together to play and have fun. We see this as an opportunity for anyone who has ever wondered, "What new game should I buy?" but did not buy it because they were unsure they would like it. With our library of over 300 games to choose from, anyone is sure to find a game they want to try and be able to find someone who will play it with them. We want to provide an avenue for avid gamers to show newcomers how much fun gaming can be, and to introduce gamers of all stripes and experience to our large, diverse, and friendly gaming community here in Winnipeg.
