Introducing the Family Games Area

OrcaCon 2019 is coming up fast and we are getting excited to share with you another weekend of games, shopping, food trucks and more. This year we are eager to introduce a Family Games area so that our members who enjoy lighter games and shorter play times have a dedicated area to find what they are looking for. The Family Games area will be on the 1st Floor in the Bellevue Ballroom. Look for Kit and their great team of Family Game Hosts.

What can I expect in the Family Games Area?

  • Friendly, helpful Game Hosts who will help you find the perfect game
  • A dedicated section of the OrcaCon Game Library full of awesome family games
  • Great scheduled games
  • Activities to keep the whole family engaged and having fun
  • Other families who love board games

What kind of games will be there?

  • Catan Junior
  • Stuffed Fables
  • No Thank You Evil
  • Robo Rally
  • Echidna Shuffle
  • And Many More…

Please Note: Children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times and must be wearing their badge. For more information, please see our policies.
