DieCon is a premier Midwest gaming convention held annually in the metro St. Louis area. Our focus is to support all aspects of the adventure gaming hobby; this includes board games, collectable card games, electronic gaming, live action role-playing games, miniature games, and tabletop role-playing games. DieCon is held at the Gateway Center in Collinsville, Illinois over the last weekend in June (June 20-22, 2014). We host over 250 scheduled events each year and occupy over 25,000 square feet of gaming space. In 2013, the attendance was over 700 unique visitors from an eight state region.

In 2013, using this same space, we ran a board game library, open play space, demoed games, and a offered a great "play to win" section.

DieCon is an annual, St. Louis-area, gaming convention held in the late spring/early summer at Gateway Center in Collinsville, IL (just minutes from downtown St. Louis, MO). Not gaming in the gambling, blow-your-life-savings sense; but gaming in the have-fun-without-paying-too-much sense. We're talking actual, interactive game-playing here! Board Games, RolePlaying Games (RPGs), Collectable Card Games (CCGs) and Miniatures Games. With over 100 different games being played during the three days of our convention, you're sure to find something you like. Or come to learn something new -- you might just find a game you've never played before but really, really enjoy!
Sun, May 27, 2012 (11:00 AM - 11:00 PM)
A free event for those who like and want to meet new people and learn knew games.
