CaptainCon is dedicated to bringing you the best social and tabletop gaming experiences a 3-day convention can offer.

Our mission is to bring you the best gaming experiences available at a reasonable cost with as few restrictions as possible so that you can play what you want, when you want, in a fun and open atmosphere. This means:

  • 24 hour access to the convention’s game space
  • A robust schedule of organized competitive miniatures and board games tournaments
  • Role playing game sessions
  • Organized play events for board and card games
  • Plenty of table space for casual miniatures, board, and, card games
  • A games demo area where you can learn and try new games
  • A dedicated hobby area where you can assemble or paint models (we’ll supply the paint) and chat with friends
  • The Captain’s Log achievement system that rewards you with prizes that aren’t tied just to winning games
  • An entire weekend of hanging out with friends, enjoying challenging games, and just generally having fun with an amazing group of great people
  • 2017 Dates Confirmed

    That’s right, we’ve got dates finalized with the hotel for 2017.  We’ll be returning to the Crowne Plaza in Warwick, RI for February 3-5, 2017.  To make three full days of around the clock gaming even better, we’ve added an additional 4,200+ square feet of gaming space by expanding to include the Rotunda and Tiverton ballrooms.  That’s even more space for board games, role playing games, miniatures games, and general hanging out.

    Rooms are currently available while supplies last at a reduced convention rate of $129/night in the Crowne Plaza.  Check out the “Location” tab at the top for details on how to reserve yours before they’re all gone.

    If you’re interested in volunteering with the convention or running an event, hit up the links above and tell us a bit about yourself.  Vendor information will be coming shortly.


    As always, please continue to spread the word:
