About Wellycon

Since 2008 people have been gathering in the nations capital to enjoy two days of  fun board gaming with friends old and new.

Growing from an initial group of 20 gamers over 10 years ago, we now welcome over 500 people to the main event each year.  People of all ages convene to enjoy learning new games, participating in workshops, play-testing games from designers, challenging friends and newcomers to favourite games and competing in a variety of tournaments…
