About the Convention

Four score and a few months ago, four friends decided it would be a "dam" good idea to run a gaming convention in The Dalles, Oregon. Why did we think this? Well, we are Crazy Gamers™ of course! Thus the idea of WagonCon was born.

We really do hope (please, really please!) that all of you will join us the 3rd, 4th, and 5th of May in The Dalles, Oregon for WagonCon 2019!

Now with 100% more Wagons!

Two and a half days of Role-Playing Games, Board Games, Miniature War Games and Collectible Card Games.


About Us

Aaron Bowman (aka Master Blaster)

Aaron Bowman enjoys romantic walks on the beach, fine dining, and playing RPGs with friends. He's been gaming religiously since 1990, and counts anything from the Savage Worlds line, Motobushido, Horror Rules, Monster Hearts, and the D&D Eberron campaign setting amongst his favourite games. Besides RPGs, his other passion is miniature wargaming -- he enjoys Bolt Action, Warhammer 40K, and Mordheim.
Aaron loves gaming conventions, such as GameStorm and Tacticon, and is excited to be involved in the inaugural WagonCon, and bringing it to his home town of The Dalles.


Denise Harwood (aka The Dungeon Mistress)

Denise Harwood has loved games since she could use a computer or shuffle a pack of cards and has been addicted to Dungeons and Dragons in particular since 1993, when she first saw a 2nd edition character sheet. She has played many other systems, spent time in MMOs and hours over board games, but Dungeons and Dragons remains the place she calls home. She currently runs 5th edition Adventurer's League games as often as her husband will let her at the local gaming shop.


Matt Buckley (aka Philosopher of Star Alignment)

Started slaying dice and throwing dragons at the ripe age of 10 years old.  Playing as a Human Wizard in the Basic Red Box D&D set.  Then I was given a copy of the original purple box with dice you filled in with crayon.  History has never recovered.  Now I'm a gamer who loves fantasy, sci-fi and urban Gothic horror.  I've played D&D, Rifts, Hero's Unlimited, Vampire (Classic and World of Darkness), Savage Worlds and WEG systems to name a few.  Life long gaming has been my escape, passion and drug of choice.  Currently I'm a Megaversal Ambassador for Palladium Books who has been running Rifts games at various conventions including GameStorm, GenCon and the Palladium Open House.
