Ropecon is the largest non-commercial role-playing convention in Europe organised entirely by volunteers. The three day convention offers a variety of programme suitable for attendees of all ages ranging from tabletop and live-action role-playing games to card games, board games and miniature wargames. In addition to tournaments and other game programme Ropecon also features presentations, panel discussions and workshops on a wide variety of topics related to role-playing games. Two major awards, The Golden Dragon and The Deed of the Year, are presented annually at Ropecon for achievements and contributions to the role-playing game culture in Finland.
Even more important than the diverse programme is the ambiance. Each year Ropecon brings together both role-playing game enthusiasts as well as professionals in the field of gaming. Many attendees come to Ropecon specifically to meet up with old friends and get to know other role-playing game enthusiasts. Ropecon is a great place to find new people to play with.
Ropecon is organised entirely by volunteers. Around 800 volunteers participate in the making of Ropecon each year. The convention weekend packed with diverse programme about role-playing games is all planned and carried out by the gamers, for the gamers. The organisation behind the convention is Ropecon association, a non-profit organisation which aims to promote and develop the role-playing game, card game, miniature wargame and board game hobbies in Finland.
