We wouldn’t be able to run this event without the help of our sponsors so a huge thank you to the Greater Shepparton City Council for the event grant yet again! And a newcomer to our lineup, Unhalfbricking Games who will be running our official convention store this year.
Julian from Unhalfbricking is happy offer free convention pickup to anyone who orders anything from his store before Wednesday 3rd July so get shopping!
ShepparCon will have 3 official libraries of games for your tabletop enjoyment as well as selections from the committee members private collections, and as always, we will have space for attendees to store any games they are happy for others to play at the convention also.
- The Goulburn Valley Gamers Guild (GVGG – the group behind ShepparCon) have a growing board game library that you can peruse here.
- The Tabletop Game Designers Australia (TGDA) have been kind enough to lend us their Australian designed game library again this year.
- PAX Aus Tabletop is also loaning us their 2019 Hot Games library.
We have a number of events organised, with more in the works!
- Jo & Brent from Delightful Rainglow will be running a children’s game session on both Saturday and Sunday
- Giles will be running his very popular board game themed Wits and Wagers game again on Saturday evening
- Karl will run a ProtoSPIEL for any designers looking to get feedback on games they have in development on the Sunday (all attendees are encouraged to come play).
