Australian Tabletop Gaming Events 2024

Hello again, Arkenforge Community! We’re thrilled to be back with another fun community article. This time we’re here to tell you about as many of the fun Australian tabletop gaming related events around  for you to enjoy!

We haven’t been to all of these, but we’ve researched them thoroughly to let you know a little bit about each one.

We’ll be updating this when we find out about new events, and at the end of each year so the list will be nice and fresh for each new year from here out.

We’d love to hear about which events you’re excited for!



Can Con

Cancon is a great event with lots of tabletop games for you to check out – they have games running for you to try out on the day, stallholders with new games for purchase and even the second-hand Bring and Buy!
