Tabletop RPGs are the most common type of event at Conquest Games Convention.
‘Tabletop’ gaming has been the traditional dice & paper type of roleplaying game that many con-goers are familiar with. As roleplaying has evolved, it has grown to include systemless and multiform games – games without dice, and in some cases even without a table.
Some of the most well-known tabletop role-playing games include Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, and Call of Cthulhu. Games such as these can be played all Easter weekend at Conquest!
Freeform RPGs (also known as Parlour LARPs) usually involve large groups of people per session. Usually there’s more than 6, and sometimes more than 20.
In a typical freeform rpg, all players gather into one large room or open space for the game session.
In freeform games, emphasis is on character interaction rather than dice-based gaming.
Costumes are usually not required, but are often encouraged.
This is a variant of the Tabletop RPG, and encompasses pre-written modules that have ongoing characters, typically in a worldwide campaign. Examples of this include ‘Pathfinder Society’, ‘Star Wars: Living Force’, and ‘Dungeons & Dragons: Adventurers League’.
Beginners and experienced players are welcome!
Miniatures games are just like the description sounds; games that involve miniature models. Tiny tanks, soldiers, and scenery are spread out in an amazing display across large tables.
For those that like their games tactical, there are a selection of wargames and miniature events spanning the weekend. These may require BYO miniatures, so best to check if you aren’t sure.
Open gaming sessions do not require any pre-booking – These attractions can be attended at any time at the convention, access is included with your entry fee.
Feel free to drop in for a shorter game when you have a spare session!
Multiplayer Video Games
We are especially interested in seeing games from Australian developers!
Special events such as trivia, raffles, cosplay, costume competitions are welcome at Conquest.
(If you don’t see one of these event types listed at our current convention, it means no one has offered to run it! Which means next year, that could be you!)
