The Field Marshal Gaming Convention, now in its 7th year, is an annual celebration of tabletop gaming held in Oshawa, Ontario every September hosted by I Will Never Grow Up Games and the FMGCon Organizing Committee.

This weekend long event is host to tabletop games of all kinds, from your traditional (and not-so-traditional, modern) board games, card and dice games to miniatures gaming.

This is a family friendly event that is meant to create a weekend of fun and gaming with friends, old and new held in a historic and atmospheric building.

Come for a day, or come for the entire weekend – in either case, come for the fun of tabletop gaming!
