Ropecon 2014

Ropecon was the great success, there was second biggest number of visitors. Something like 3700 people attending if I remember corrently. I have been there almost every year, and every year I find something new.

What is Ropecon, a snippet form their own pages. Ropecon, the largest non-commercial roleplaying festival in Europe, took place from 25th to 27th of July in Otaniemi, Espoo. The festival attracts over 3500 visitors interested in roleplaying, card games, miniatures, board games, LARPs. Ropecon is not only about playing or gaming, but the event also has various presentations or workshops with a wide variety of interesting topics. The Ropecon event has been held each annually from the year 1994. The very first Ropecon was held in hotel Paasitorni, Helsinki. After 1994 the number of attendees has increased drastically and a larger venue was needed, and thus the Ropecon was moved to Dipoli, Espoo, where Ropecon is organized for the 15th time thus far.
