CanGames, Friendly Mayhem Since 1977

Check out our facebook page or follow us on Twitter: or Google+:


CanGames was first organized by a group of friends in 1977. In the 80's we became a not-for-profit corporation organized by volunteers to this day. We have a Committee that operates the con and a board that monitors expenses and runs the corporation. If you are interested in volunteering at the convention (high school students can earn volunteer hours), have any ideas for us, or would like to know more about the operations of the convention, please contact


Please consider helping us at the convention. Volunteers make the convention possible and reduces the committee stress level. :)

We need volunteers before, during and after the convention.

CanGames' Policies

Costumes - No person may wear attire that will project a negative image of the convention. The adjudicator will make decisions concerning this policy in the best interest of our convention by the organizers.

Children - Children under the age of 8 are welcome to visit CanGames for a short period of time and must at all times be accompanied by an adult guardian. Children aged 8 to 12 may play in a game only when an adult guardian is also registered in the same game. Note that the children's games (C) are an exception to this. Children aged 13 and over may play games on their own.

Weapons - No person may display or carry weapons or weapon replicas of any sort regardless of the material from which they are made. Offenders will be ejected from the convention site for the duration!

Game Etiquette - You may not play in multiple games at once; it's rude and slows down play for others. You may not leave a game before the end of play (unless you're eliminated). If you do, you will be barred from participating in any other game. This will be strictly enforced. Please do not disturb games in progress. Anyone creating a disturbance will be ejected from the Convention immediately, may be placed on a Persona Non Grata list and may be barred from attendance at future conventions. Please refrain from cell phone use while gaming. Any attendee disregarding good gaming etiquette or sportsmanship will be dealt with. Please direct any complaints to the CanGames Adjudicator.

Anti-Harassment Policy - CanGames is dedicated to ensuring a safe space for all gamers. All attendees at CanGames are expected to treat other attendees, guests, staff, and the general public with respect; harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. Please see our booklet for our detailed anti-harassment policy.

Refunds - Registration fees can be refunded at the convention at the discretion of the adjudicator. A 10% administration fee is charged. If you do not attend the convention, refunds must be applied for in writing within 30 days of the convention. No refund if you are ejected! Tournament pre-registration fees are not refundable.

Restricted Areas - Unauthorized persons found in a restricted area will be ejected from the convention. Restricted Areas include: the Marketplace after hours, Command Center (back area), and areas designated as such by the Rideau Curling Club.

Independent Dealer Policy - No company or individual may sell merchandise, services, distribute handbills, or solicit funds on the convention site without the express written consent of CanGames. Sellers must restrict their business to the areas and times set forth by CanGames. Please do not buy cards or other items from itinerant vendors who cannot show a permit.
