Welcome to Gamicon Iron!

Gamicon is Eastern Iowa's premier game convention. We offer three days of family friendly events ranging from scheduled board, card and role-playing games to a live game auction and a huge game library that lets you choose the gaming experience you want. Now in our 26th year, we have established ourselves as the go-to game event for Eastern Iowa and much of the midwest. Register early, because only the first 300 pre-registered attendees will get our cool swag bag.

Curious about our events before you get to Gamicon? Check them out here.


Gamicon is a project of Mindbridge Foundation, a 501(c)7 Not For Profit Organization. Now in our 26th year, we strive to be a meeting place for all types of gamers of every interest level. From the novice to the experienced gamer, there is something for everone here.


In 2016, we scheduled over 300 tables of events over the course of the weekend. Almost all of our events are novice level, so anyone can sit down and learn to play. Most of our games are also family friendly and games with adult themes and content are located outside of our main spaces. We also offer a Game Library with over 350 games available for checkout.


Over the past 25 years, we have hosted some awsome game industry guests. Folks like Curt Covert from Smirk and Dagger Games, Jay Tummelson from Rio Grande Games, and James Ernest from Cheapass Games are just a few of the great folks that we have hosted. Check out our Guests page to see who we're hosting this year!
