Welcome to Polar Vortex Game Convention!

Polar Vortex Gaming Convention grew out of many discussions over recent years about creating a general gaming convention in the Chicago region with the potential to share a wide variety of tabletop gaming, promote this enjoyable 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.

The positive responses from our first Polar Vortex Game Convention blew us away. Most attendees expressed how much fun they had, how many different games they could play, and how relaxed the convention felt. We have planned even more gaming opportunities for Polar Vortex 2, and have worked hard to make improvements.

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.
