Ropecon

Ropecon is the largest non-commercial role-playing convention in Europe. Each year it brings together both enthusiasts as well as professionals in the field of role-playing games. In 2019, more than 5 000 attendees gathered in the Helsinki Messukeskus Expo and Convention Centre for a weekend full of role-playing games, fun and excitement. Ropecon 2020 will be held at Messukeskus from 24th to 26th of July.

The convention weekend is packed with diverse programme that is organised and executed entirely by volunteers – by the gamers, for the gamers. In addition to games and tournaments, the programme includes presentations, presentations, panel discussions and workshops in a wide variety of topics ranging from historical subjects to game design and how to implement new game ideas in practice. Two major awards, the Golden Dragon and the Deed of the Year, are given out at Ropecon each year for contributions and advancements towards development and promotion of the role-playing game hobby in Finland. There are also multiple new works and publications in the field of gaming launched at Ropecon each year, from board games to academic theories on role-playing games.

Ropecon 2020 starts with the 3rd annual Ropecon Academic Seminar held on Friday. For more information on the Academic Seminar, click here.

Around 800 volunteers participate in the making of Ropecon each year. The organisation behind the convention is Ropecon ry, a non-profit association which aims to promote and develop the role-playing game, board game, card game and miniature wargame hobbies in Finland.

The theme of Ropecon 2020 is The End of the World, which will offer an interesting variety of themed programme and activities suitable for attendees of all ages and experience levels, including beginners and those who have only just began to take interest into role-playing games.
