Online registration is now open for the 12th annual SnowCon Gaming Convention to be held Saturday and Sunday, January 18 and 19, at Cross Insurance Center in Bangor. The event is a celebration of tabletop-game playing for all ages. The online schedule lists registered games in sessions of two or four hours. Organizers state, “Tabletop games, such as board games and role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons, encourage the face-to-face interaction that can be lost with most electronic games.”

Registrants may post the games they would like to play and sign up to be a player in other listed games.

Tickets are available for attendance on one or two days; the cost for two days is $45 if tickets are purchased online by January 17. Tickets purchased at the door on the day of the event are $50 for two days; $35 for Saturday only; and $25 for Sunday only. For more information and links to ticket sales, visit snowconmaine.com.
