About ConsimWorld Expo 2017
- The Ultimate Gaming Experience — CSW Expo 2017, featuring MonsterGame.CON XVII, has it all! The best and grandest games ever assembled, the most enthusiastic gamers and industry personalities coming together to celebrate the hobby, fantastic hotel accommodations and event facility, exhibitor showcase, seminars, game auction, flea market, breakfast speakers, TONS of door prizes, and much more.
- Expanded Venue with Early Set-up on Saturday, May 27 — We're pleased to announce early set-up for CSW Expo 2017. The Grand Ballroom will be open on Saturday, May 27 @ 10am for early arrivals who wish to set-up and play early! We won't begin our "official" Expo check-in with attendees until the following day, Sunday. This means an added day of gaming!
- About MonsterGame.CON — The mission of MonsterGame.CON XVII, a CSW Expo exclusive, is to provide a dedicated venue for one to participate in the monster game of their choosing. A single game title. With today's demanding schedule and responsibilities, many gaming enthusiasts find themselves hard-pressed to find the time or colleagues necessary to orchestrate such an ambitious multiplayer undertaking. Such desire is usually relegated to never-realized dreams, or result in games being played over a disjointed, extended period. But no more! ConsimWorld Expo delivers a truly memorable gaming experience, delivering the realization, "I finally got to play that game!"
- Open-Gaming Nirvana — Not into monster gaming? Fret not! If open-gaming is more your speed (which is the case for nearly half our attendees), we have dedicated gaming space available to cater to those unable to attend the entire event or preferring to partake in multiple open-gaming endeavours. We typically play host to more than 30+ open gaming titles each year. If it's a wargame you are accustomed to seeing at WBC, you will definitely see it here!
- An Incredible Venue — Here's a short list of special activities you'll experience at ConsimWorld Expo: Evening Welcome Reception, Game Demos and Sneak Peeks, Seminars, Special Gaming Events, Featured Playtest Sessions, Open-gaming, Breakfast After Action Reports, Flea Market Tables, Game Auction, Exhibitor Room, Evening Coffee Clutch, Door Prizes, and even more surprises in store for 2017!
- Special Events Galore — Every year we host numerous special events and seminars, including our always popular Down in Flames Aces' Campaign, Strike Force One Tournament, and our popular HUNTERS U-Boat tournament.
