Dragonflight, the Pacific Northwest’s longest running tabletop game convention, is currently accepting events to be included in our schedule. The convention will be held from Friday, August 19th to Sunday, August 21st, 2016.

This will be the 37th annual convention run by our namesake volunteer and non-profit organization. We are looking for additional volunteers to join us by offering boardgames, roleplaying games, wargames, and miniatures events to share with our membership. Situated in the comfortable and spacious Bellevue Hilton, the Dragonflight annual convention offers our members an excellent opportunity to find opponents, to showcase games of interest, to seek greater competition, to enhance skills in the art of scenario creation, and to otherwise express ourselves with the incredibly creative and beautiful games that populate our hobby. Dragonflight proudly remains a general gaming convention: while many conventions specialize in one game format or the other, we continue to offer opportunities for cross fertilization between the different formats of tabletop games. Last year’s convention was a success and attendance grew by more than 20%; we hope that you will join the rest of our hardworking volunteers to make this year’s convention even better!
