THE TRIUMPHANT (?) RETURN! Come visit your Uncle Atom and play all kinds of fun tabletop wargames! Not a tournament-based event, but an event to learn new games, play fun multiplayer wargames, meet like-minded players, and learn new things.

During this third? Maybe fourth? annual event, you’ll be able to play miniatures games and demos, home-brewed rules, narrative games, and more. There’ll be some teaching seminars, too – in theory!

The event is held on the campus of the University Wisconsin Oshkosh and there’s plenty of restaurants and bars right across the street for your enjoyment. There will probably be some activities after the game hall closes on Saturday night.

Saturday badge: $8, Sunday badge: $5, Weekend badge: $12 (you save a dollar!)
Tickets will be available at the door.
Games run from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m Sunday
Doors open for ticket purchase at 9:30 a.m. Saturday and 8:30 a.m. Sunday

GAMEMASTER SIGN-UP

This event is known as an ‘expo’ because there won’t be any tournaments. We’re looking for people to run tabletop wargaming demos, fun multiplayer events, ‘homebuilt’ rules systems, playtests, and things of that nature. If you run an event or events for at least four hours, your weekend badge fee will be waived. Table space will be 60 inches by six feet.

Please fill out the form below with your event (if you’d like to run multiple events, please fill out a separate form for each) and if you have any questions, please let me know via email at atom@tabletopminions.org and I’ll get you sorted.

HOUSING

There’s great, reasonably priced dorm-style housing available right upstairs from the game room. Rooms include two twin beds, a dresser, two closets, microwave, refrigerator, air conditioning, and towel sets and run just $40 per night. Call 920-424-1106 for reservations. NEW FOR 2022 – Overnight parking (generally in the ramp across the street) now costs $5 per night. Can be paid in the ramp kiosk or online.

VENDORS

None yet – why don’t you sign up to be a vendor?

To vendors:
We’re accepting vendors for the event. Right up front: this event is pretty small and intimate, and we really only want vendors who are game manufacturers, publishers, and designers or vendors who make products for tabletop wargaming (terrain, models, templates, accessories, etc.) as well. A single six-foot table is $30 for the weekend and includes two vendor badges. Please email me at atom@tabletopminions.org if you’re interested or have questions.

MAP & LOCATION

The event will be on the UW Oshkosh campus at the Gruenhagen Conference Center, 208 Osceola Street, Oshkosh, WI 54901. Check it out here on Google Maps.
