About TCTC

We respectfully acknowledge that TCTC takes place on the traditional unceded and ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəjˀəm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil Waututh) Nations.

Terminal City Tabletop Convention (TCTC) is a Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada-based celebration of all things tabletop gaming.

Launched in 2014 by Shannon Lentz, the event brings gamers of all ages and genres together for three inclusive and fun days of gaming. We welcome experienced gamers and those new to the hobby. From board games, role-playing games, card games, party games, proto-games… we have something for everyone. We feature over 15,000 sq ft of gaming space, and a board game library of over 600 games!

Our event has seen consistent growth over the years. TCTC 2024 is expected to welcome a diverse community of over 1000 attendees, with a strong presence of women gamers, LGBTQ+ gamers, BIPOC gamers, and families of all ages. We are becoming a large regional convention and are seeing attendees coming from neighbouring provinces and the western United States.

The event was taken over by Andrea and Blair Driedger in 2020, two longtime TCTC volunteers who wanted to keep the spirit of TCTC alive even through a pandemic. They adapted the event to an online format for three years, and were excited to be back in-person in 2023.

TCTC has grown and changed a lot over the years, but the heart of the event remains the same: to host a welcoming and inclusive event that celebrates all types of tabletop gaming in British Columbia.
