Calgary Events to Look For

For anyone who is new to Calgary or interested in getting together for some wargames, these are the following open hex and counter wargaming groups and activities I am aware of:

Calgary Strategy & Wargaming Group (CALSWAG):

Events are usually posted on meetup.com under Calgary Board Gaming Events.

Usually meets at the Sentry Box the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month to play strategy games. Attendance has been sporadic in recent years so make sure to RSVP and confirm others will be attending on the meetup.com website before making the trip.

Usually hosts a couple of strategy games at Fallcon, Calgary's annual board gaming convention that will be running from Sept 22-24, 2017. Check fallcon.com for further details. Fallcon usually has almost 1000 attendees and is a fun event, but tends to focus on lighter euro type games lately as opposed to the heavier strategy games that used to be more common there.

Hosts its own "Museum-Con" for a weekend every February at the Military Museum to focus on wargames and this event is usually attended by ~10-15 Calgary area wargamers. Typically advertised by email, but the event is usually posted on meetup.com as well.

Other events shown on the meetup where wargames are occasionally played are at the legion, as well as on Monday nights at the Sentry Box.
