About TCTC


We respectfully acknowledge that TCTC takes place on the traditional unceded and ancestral territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. 

Terminal City Tabletop Convention (TCTC) was started by Shannon Lentz in 2014. There was no local gaming convention at the time, and Shannon saw an opportunity to bring the community together in one place to celebrate the best of gaming in B.C.

We’ve grown a lot over the years, but out goal remains the same: to host a welcoming and inclusive event that celebrates tabletop gaming in British Columbia.

Who are we?

Hi! We’re Andrea and Blair Driedger, the owners of Plaid Dog Events Ltd. We took over TCTC from Shannon when he decided it was time to focus his energies elsewhere. We’ve attended TCTC since day one, are longtime TCTC volunteers, and we love sharing our passion for gaming with others.

Andrea’s professional background is in communications and events, with a proven history in community building, nonprofits, and public relations.
