DieCon is a premier Midwest gaming convention held annually in the metro St. Louis area. Our focus is to support all aspects of the adventure gaming hobby; this includes board games, collectable card games, electronic gaming, live action role-playing games, miniature games, and tabletop role-playing games. DieCon is held at the Gateway Center in Collinsville, Illinois over the last weekend in June (June 20-22, 2014). We host over 250 scheduled events each year and occupy over 25,000 square feet of gaming space. In 2013, the attendance was over 700 unique visitors from an eight state region. In 2014 we will continue to dedicate nearly 4,500 square feet of convention space to our board game room. In 2013, using this same space, we ran a board game library, open play space, demoed games, and a offered a great "play to win" section.
