Con d'Alene

When: March 20-22 2015

Board games, role-playing games, collectible trading card games and tabletop adventures of all sorts take over the Post Falls American Legion this weekend to raise money for local veterans organizations. And even while the advanced technology of video games continues to blow minds with inventions like virtual reality, tabletop gaming is arguably bigger than ever. From Warhammer 40,000 to Magic: The Gathering and Pokémon to historically based war strategy games, the appeal of this “analog” play spans across ages and interests. The second annual weekend game-a-thon boasts more than 40 games to both learn and play with other enthusiasts.

March 20-22 • $20-$25/day; $40-$45/full weekend • American Legion Post 143 • 1138 E. Poleline Ave., Post Falls • • 208-762-7764
