By gamers for gamers

Ropecon is the largest non-commercial role-playing convention in Europe. Each year it brings together both enthusiasts as well as professionals in the field of role-playing games. The theme for year 2018 is life and community.

The three day convention offers a wide variety of programs from tabletop and live action role-playing games to card, miniature and board games. In addition to gaming centered programs, there is a plethora of lectures, panel discussions and workshops in interesting topics. Ropecon also hosts a historical dance ball, a foam weapon tournament and several other competitions. There is so much to see and experience that it is impossible to go through it all during the convention weekend. But the most important thing is to get into the Ropecon spirit, no matter which universe you are from.

Gi nathlam hí! See You at Ropecon!
