ARMCANNON is a team of 5 gents from Buffalo, New York who have amassed their varietal backgrounds in musicianship into a Voltron-esque concoction of prog-metal-nuanced festivities of the nostalgic pedigree. Since 2005 they have focused on the melodies that have been burned into your soul from the NES and the Super NES, re-thinking and mashing-up the sacred notes of lore into a series of kaleidoscopic journeys into what beings from this solar system colloquially refer to as “the party zone!" Be sure to catch them perform over the weekend, and definitely stop by to meet them at their booth!


Come dance the evening away with fellow trolls and fans! Formal wear or casual wear accepted! The important part is to have fun!

Not only is the master of nerd words a musician but he is also a developer, artist, and musician for video games and tabletop / card games. Definitely make sure you see this amazing spectacle of music live, and also give high fives to him at the ICHIBAN GAMES video game booth!


Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator lets you turn your living room into the bridge of a spaceship. You and your friends assume the jobs of Captain, Helm, Science, Communication, Engineering, and Weapon Control. Together you operate your ship and defend the sector from evil aliens.


Joining Fan World: An amazing spectacle on the American side - weapons and battle demonstrations by the great Dagohir Battle Games group! Taking place outside on Old Falls Street (weather permitting), learn from experienced battlers and even try your hand at the sword in their battle royale!

Maybe we should even arrange a REAL episode of Border Wars, and match Canada and the United States in battle!


Fan World will be hosting overnight fun like video gaming, tabletop gaming, and even Werewolf in our official host hotel: The Red Maple Inn! One late night tournament we do have planned is our Nidhogg (on PS4) deathmatches! Play all night, and play to win!
