Board Games - Card Games - RPGs - LARPS - Wargames

WARPCON is a three day gaming event hosted on the campus of University College Cork and is one of the best options in Ireland for a weekend of fun, games and just pure shenanigans. This year's convention runs from January 26th to 28th.


RPGs are a major part of each WARPCON. This past year the convention was host to 25 separate scenarios accross the weekend. These scenarios all used different systems for play including, Scion, Higher Powers and also some homebrew systems. Our hope is to continue to host as many scenarios this for the coming year. We rely on you, our attendees to create the scenarios and run them.

LARPs are an opportunity for you to fully act out role playing scenarios. WARPCON was host to 10 seperate LARP scenarios in 2017 from huge cataclysms sinking much of the world into the ocean, to a dramatic wrestling tournament, there was a scenario for everybody.
