While open gaming may be the heart of WashingCon, we work hard to bring you slate of events every year to provide something different for your time at the convention as well. For those who want more organized gaming, RPGs, or a to learn more about the industry we hope there’s something on our schedule for you! A classic slate of tournaments, such as Catan and Carcassonne, will be happening for those who want a little more intense competition as their table - and for those of you who are looking for something really fierce, we will be holding our first ever Ironmeeple Challenge this year! A 6-Game gauntlet where the only the best players move on to determine total tabletop mastery! And for those who prefer role playing games, or just want to give it a try, GMs will be running one shot RPGs on Saturday and Sunday from a variety of systems.
As the winner of our online bracket, Stonemaier Games’ Charterstone has been selected as the community legacy game at this years convention - where by signing up to play you can take part in one session of the unfolding story, moving through the world created by the previous players and laying the foundations for the next group who takes your place!
For the second year in a row we will also be brining back Tiny Adventures as well! Last year our unique Scandinavian Modular Brick Building (tm) Adventure Dungeons were our most popular activity and this year they are back with a twist!

A series of panels will be held where folks can hear members of the community talk about getting into LARPing, what it takes to be a professional content creator and how to create fun as a young games designer.
