Keycon - Manitoba's premiere science fiction and fantasy convention



So are you trying to pre plan your conventions? AWESOME here is the current program grid for you all! As always remember that program grids are never set in stone, they are more placed in firm Jell-o. So as much as we are saying this is how it will show in the program book, at the convention it may in fact change. Please enjoy the grid, and HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

With Keycon around the corner, and the games stacking up, it was time to update what it is we will have there, join us all for more fun games then you can possibly in a single weekend.

So here are just a select few of the games that are planned for this weekend. The gaming crew hopes that you will check out our information in the Program Book to see a more completed list, and as in the past, it is always a good plan to come down and just check out what people pulled out to play!

We're going to have a good group of gaming going this year.
