Welcome to the Inaugural Polar Vortex Game Convention!

Polar Vortex Gaming Convention grew out of many discussions over recent years about having a fun general gaming convention in the Chicago region with the potential to share a wide variety of gaming fun, promote this fun hobby to the larger community, support local games retailers, support publishers, and benefit the general community. These discussions involved gamers, retailers, vendors, publishers, charities, and convention organizers. The result is the variety of gaming opportunities presented for you to enjoy this weekend.

On behalf of our convention partners, volunteers, con staff, supporting and participating retailers we wish you a thoroughly enjoyable weekend of gaming fun and camaraderie.

Relax, have a great time, and may your dice rolls and card draws be ever in your favor.
