CaptainCon 2017 Recap

Home »  CaptainCon 2017 Recap

February 3-5, 2017 saw the largest yet gathering of gamers for CaptainCon at the Crowne Plaza in Warwick, RI.  By all accounts (including our own experiences) it was an amazingly fun time for all involved.  Thank you to all the volunteers, event organizers, vendors, and players who made the weekend a great success.  Read on and click the links below for a little taste of the action.

Thank you to Lost Hemisphere!

Once again, with the great support of numerous companies and individual gamers along with the hard work of the folks at Lost Hemisphere, the gaming community of CaptainCon 2017 raised over $4,000 for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute to support cancer research, specifically $4,086.  That’s a new record for us and a goal to top next year.  Follow the link for more details and photos of the winners with their winnings while I blatantly lift the graphic from their page.

Stolen from Lost Hemisphere to recognize the achievement and sponsors. Click to visit for full details.


Thousands of Games Played

Over the weekend, hundreds of players from across North America played thousands of games and had a great social event.  If you click on the picture below, you can check out a full album of photos from the show and maybe spot yourself or a friend.
