WonderCon is quickly approaching, and now that badges have become available, news on gaming during the convention, Artist Alley and booth placements, convention exclusives, and even panels are starting to emerge.

Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:

  • Fans of gaming will have more choices than ever at this year’s WonderCon, with more than 60 different game titles available to play during the convention. CCI recently released information on this year’s offerings, which include free-to-play games like Cards Against Humanity, Defiance Monopoly, Dungeons and Dragons, My Little Pony Rock n’ Rave, Settlers of Catan, Pokemon XY, and many more. As in years past, there will also be gaming tournaments, and you can sign up for Sanctioned Tournaments for Heroclix Figure Gaming, Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh! for a small materials fee. Find more information on CCI’s site.
