The organizers of Game-itoba are pleased to announce that after postponements due to COVID-19, Winnipeg’s board game convention is scheduled to return on Jan. 28 to 30, 2022.
After initially being slated to return at the beginning of November of this year, Game-itoba organizers decided to delay the event for a few more months due to continued pandemic concerns.
The convention’s organizers are pleased to announce that this shift in time of year will become a permanent move starting in 2022. As the convention returns to an annual schedule, we will move away from November, which is a busy time of year, to the end of January, giving gamers something exciting to look forward to in the heart of the Manitoba winter.
Open to people of all ages, Game-itoba features various board, card, role-playing and miniature games. The convention includes organized events, casual play, and an extensive library of games.
Game-itoba 2022 will be held at the Bronx Park Community Centre, 720 Henderson Hwy., in Winnipeg, where the two previous editions of the convention were held in 2018 and 2019. The 2020 edition was cancelled due to the pandemic.
Details on the setup of the convention and the requirements of attendees will be announced publicly as we get closer to the event, and will be shaped by provincial regulations at that time. It is the goal of Game-itoba organizers to provide tabletop gamers with an opportunity to come together and enjoy the hobby we all love in a safe and comfortable environment.
Information on tickets will be announced closer to the event date.
Game-itoba organizers greatly appreciate the support and patience of our community, as we dealt with the impacts of the pandemic on the convention. We are very excited to welcome everyone back to this celebration of tabletop gaming early in 2022.
As we return to gaming and embark on this new era, the organizers want to thank everyone who supported the first two years of the event. Those supporters include our major corporate partners, A Muse N Games, Game Knight Games and Cool Stuff, and Maxx Collectibles, our other numerous community partners, and, of course, you, the wonderful gaming community, whose enthusiasm and support has made each previous edition of Game-itoba special. We look forward to everyone coming together to be a part of the future of Game-itoba.
We will see you all at Winnipeg’s Bronx Park Community Centre, Jan. 28 to 30, for Game-itoba 2022.
