Games at OrcaCon

OrcaCon 2025 will have around-the-clock gaming, starting at 10:00am on Friday, and ending at 6:00pm Sunday. We will have a Play & Win Library, an Open Play Library, Scheduled Games, Tournaments, and Demo Tables.

Open Play

A huge amount of OrcaCon is all about people playing games with their friends, or playing games with other attendees. We have a lot of open play tables both in some ballrooms and scattered around the hotel in the wings. 

Our Games Admin Tables in each Ballroom is there for you to get assistance helping you find a great game or more players. We’ll have LFG (Looking for Group) signs, so you can get more players when you bring your own games or borrow something from one of our libraries.

Scheduled Games

If you wish to submit a game for our schedule, you find more information on the Submissions page when it opens. We take submissions for all kinds of games. We’re especially looking for introductory level RPGs and newbie friendly board/card games. We are also looking for family games, dexterity games, and story games. Got a tournament you’d like to run? You can submit that, too. 

Due to the inclusive nature of our convention, we do not allow the following games in the public convention spaces, due to their content or theme:

  • Cards Against Humanity
  • Secret Hitler
  • Tanto Cuore
  • Kingdom Death
  • Commissioned
  • Lamentations of the Flame Princess
  • Reality Check: The Game of Privilege
  • Virtue Signal: the Game of Social Justice
  • Manplaining


Demo Games

If you’re a game publisher, with a finished game, you can submit for a Demo Table. We do our Demo Tables in shifts, so you’re not stuck behind a table all day long. If you’re looking to sell your game at the convention, we recommend submitting an application for our Merchant Hall.

 Game Library

If you are a game publisher or creator and want to donate your game(s), please contact us at and we’ll coordinate getting your games on our tables. Our amazing Game Hosts will be happy to learn your games and teach them to our attendees!
