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) is Metro Vancouver’s best tabletop gaming convention! Launched in 2014 by Shannon Lentz, the event brings gamers of all ages and genres together for two glorious and fun days of gaming. We welcome experiences gamers and those new to the hobby. From board games, role-playing games, card games, party games, proto-games… we have something for everyone.

The event was taken over by Andrea and Blair 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, but we’re excited to be back in-person for 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.
