Conquest 2023Melbourne's Annual Tabletop Games Convention
Our convention has been running (almost) every year over the Easter long weekend, since 1989. Run by gamers, for gamers!
What is Conquest 2023?
Conquest is a games convention which runs every Easter weekend in Melbourne, Australia. We’re an open, inclusive and friendly community of tabletop gamers, GMs, and creators! 🌈😊
We host the following types of games:
- Tabletop RPGs (Dungeons & Dragons, Call of Cthulhu, VtM, and more!)
- Indie RPGs from around Australia
- Parlour LARP (aka. Freeform LARP)
- Miniatures games
- Board games and card games
- Special events such as trivia, raffles, cosplay, costume competitions (if you can think of it, but we haven’t had it yet, talk to us on Discord!)
We also feature the following kinds of market stalls:
- Dice and TTRPG accessories
- Miniatures and accessories
- Local artists, comic book, and zine creators
- Geek accessories, plush and other goods
Conquest is a non-profit, community-driven organisation run entirely by volunteers. Without government funding or sponsorship from large companies, we’re not as “big” as you might think!
We rely on ticket sales, vendor stalls and sponsorship to stay afloat.
