At the Conquest convention

Tabletop RPGs (role playing games) 

Tabletop RPGs are the most common type of event at Conquest Games Convention. 

‘Tabletop’ gaming has been the traditional dice & paper type of roleplaying game that many con-goers are familiar with. As roleplaying has evolved, it has grown to include systemless and multiform games – games without dice, and in some cases even without a table. 

 Some of the most well-known tabletop role-playing games include Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, and Call of Cthulhu. Games such as these can be played all Easter weekend at Conquest! 

Freeform RPGs 

Freeform RPGs (also known as Parlour LARPs) usually involve large groups of people per session. Usually there’s more than 6, and sometimes more than 20. 

In a typical freeform rpg, all players gather into one large room or open space for the game session. 

In freeform games, emphasis is on character interaction rather than dice-based gaming. 

Costumes are usually not required, but are encouraged. 

Miniatures Games 

Miniatures games are just like the description sounds; games that involve miniature models. Tiny tanks, soldiers, and scenery are spread out in an amazing display across large tables. 

For those that like their games tactical, there will be a selection of wargames and miniature events spanning the weekend. These may require BYO miniatures, so best to check if you aren’t sure. 

Board Games & Card Games 

Come and play board games and card games such as MTG (Magic.. The Gathering), Yugio, Pokemon and more  over the Easter long weekend in Melbourne.  Bring your own decks for an awesome weekend! 

Open Gaming 

Open gaming sessions do not require any pre-booking – These attractions can be attended at any time at the convention, access is included with your entry fee. 

Multiplayer Video Games 

Although Conquest are mostly well-known as a tabletop games convention, Conquest also welcomes multiplayer video games that are played in the same room.
