What is TsunamiCon?
TsunamiCon is Wichita's premiere tabletop gaming convention, happening October 18th, 19th and 20th and presenting a variety of gaming opportunities and related geekery right here in America's heartland. Each year, gamers from across the region - and even the nation - gather for three fun-filled days of tabletop RPGs, board games, miniatures, LARPing, cosplay, contests, giveaways, tournaments, live entertainment, and so much more! It's a great place to try something new or play an old favorite, catch up with friends and make new ones, and immerse yourself in all that our unique program and venue has to offer.
