GAMMA.CON 2022 Tabletop Gaming Program

Tabletop gaming is all about moving psychical objects with your hands, rolling dice to determine action and using your mind to calculate odds or probabilities based on numbers. At GAMMA.CON 2022, we’ll have a full complement of game types ranging from controlling tiny soldiers, moving pieces around a game board, strategically throwing down cards or entering a fantasy world of your own imagination.
