Junacon V 12.-13.4 Turku

Junacon V tulla puksuttaa tuttuun lokaatioon Turussa, eli vanhat sijaintitiedot pitävät paikkansa. Valitettavasti nämä sivut  ovat nousseet höyryveturiin, joten menee vielä tovi ennen kuin ne ovat laiturilla. 

Junacon V, the 5th improved edition will be held at the familiiar location at Turku. The old location information is still accurate. Unfortunately these pages have taken the steam train and it will take a while for them to arrive.

Junacon IV is almost here!

The Finnish Board Game Association and Stoori Game Club proudly present the fourth JunaCon. This is the event for North European train game enthusiasts (Juna is Finnish for Train). You are very welcome to join us at T-House party room, located at Nummenmäki city district at the beautiful city of Turku. The address for the venue is Vanha Hämeentie 29.

Moi!

Welcome to the website & blog about JunaCon, a train board game Con held in Turku’s central railway station.

JunaCon I was held in February 27th and 28th, 2010 and attracted more than 40 avid traingamers. From TransEuropa and Freight Train to On the Underground and 18XX, much fun was had by all involved.  A Ticket to Ride tournament was held, with the winners walking away with prizes offered by Lautapelit.fi and others.

The team behind JunaCon I is now going to be organising the 2nd edition of the event, which we hope to make even better. Watch for more news in this space, and details will come soon!
