We Are Back ! 2022 Event is On.

Results of our survey are in and with hundreds of you indicating you are up for 4 days of gaming... we are officially booked and ready for some gaming in January.

Tickets are on sale now and we urge everyone looking to attend to book early as we may not have access to as much space as we've had in prior years. This could cause us to shut down ticketing if we surge past expected levels.

COVID UPDATE (Know Before You Book)

Just like all public events in Ontario at this time we are subject to following all government and hotel regulations related to COVID 19. These are subject to change before or even during the event. As of November 8th, 2021 these include... Showing official PROOF of completed vaccination with matching goverment ID (2nd shot should be completed prior to Jan 15th to allow for 2 week window to be in full effect). At this time... FACE MASKS ARE REQUIRED that fully cover the nose and mouth at all times while in the public areas of the hotel and the gaming spaces. If you are uncomfortable with any of these regulations or any further instructions that may come up before or during the event, you should NOT buy a ticket this year. There will be NO refunds if turned away at registration or at any time during the event. Let's have a safe, fun event that doesn't put fellow gamers at risk for COVID or NBW at risk for any violations so we can continue on for years to come. The hotel reserves the right to also enforce or remove guests in violation of any required polices as well.


Make sure you are aware of any crossing restrictions, requirements, or mandates that must be followed for your day of arrival (these could include additional documentation, forms, scheduling ahead etc. NBW is not responsible for border restrictions and cannot issue refunds if you are denied entry to Canada for the event.

Bring N Buy : Sell More - Buy More

Due to the great success of previous years game market, we are keeping the INCREASED number of items each seller can offer at the "Bring n' Buy" event on Saturday. You may now bring up to 25 games for sale. You will still need to fill out a "seller registration form" AND an "item form" for each one and they can be found on the bring n buy page. Games for sale should be kept in your room or vehicle until Saturday morning as there is very little room for storage prior to the Saturday sales event.

Open Gaming Convention

Everyone knows the best part about any con is the open gaming... countless hours of play, hundreds of games, a huge community of friendly people waiting for you to join them at the table. These are not just your grandma's old parcheesi boards... NBW opens its doors Thursday morning at 9:00am and runs through Sunday, 6:00pm  (some folks like to arrive on Wednesday night to get a little extra gaming in, either in their room or at the Crux. ) NBW is a friendly gathering of 200 to 300 gamers playing euro-games, war-games, heavy theme, cube pushers, social deduction, fillers, new releases, and gaming classics. There are no schedules or events to book, the whole convention is open/pickup gaming... and it really does pick up ! Start Wednesday night to hit the town, meet old or new friends, go grab a dinner at the Falls... and be ready to jump right in Thursday morning.
