The Field Marshal Gaming Convention is an annual fan run tabletop gaming convention held during September in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada since 2011.
The convention was created originally by Field Marshal Games (a local and online board game and accessories company specializing in Axis and Allies and similar war themed games) to fill a gap in tabletop gaming events in the area East of Toronto and to have a relaxed, friendly atmosphere for people to come and enjoy gaming with friends, family and meet new gamers.
In 2013 the convention was turned over to be run by a dedicated, elected convention committee with all proceeds going to fund the next years event. Committee members are elected each year following the event and work year round to keep the event going.
This event remains small with around 100 guests attending each year but it has grown in popularity. The convention committee hopes to keep the event a relaxed and comfortable size rather than the mega-conventions that dominate the gaming convention circuit.
