June 13-17: Origins – Columbus, Ohio

June 15-17: PrairieCon – Brandon, Manitoba PrairieCon is a weekend long event which allows the Brandon and area gaming community to get together. The primary purpose is entertainment, and the main attractions are the tournaments and events. The mission of PrairieCon, which is a non-profit event, is to promote gaming as a form of recreation in the community, and by gaming we are referring to board games, role-playing games, collectible card games, miniature games and live-action role-playing games; we do not promote gambling of any sort
