IT was great to see both new faces and those we have come to anticipate. After the past year we all needed a con.
And now it’s time to see how we did in your (the attendees) eyes.

Table Top Gaming 2021

Tabletop Gaming is where you can go to play a wide variety of tabletop games at AnimeIowa.
This year will be operating the room differently. The changes will help to keep game playing a healthy pastime for our attendees.

We have set in place new procedures due to the Covid 19 pandemic. These are all common sense guidelines which will not subtract from your tabletop playing.
