Who We Are

We believe that games transform humanity. They inspire our minds, entertain our spirits, and allow us to establish a sense of camaraderie among fellow gamers. We believe a group of college kids can bring fun, excitement, inspiration, and friendship to the world. So we run a convention once a year, called BASHCon.

Join us in realizing the BASHCon Dream: bringing gaming, and its fantastic culture, to the masses.

BASHCon is Toledo's local gaming convention. We invite gamers of all backgrounds to play games of any kind for an entire family-friendly weekend.

For information about attending, please see our Attendee Information.

  • Convention Hours:
    • Friday: 5pm - midnight
    • Saturday: 9am - midnight
    • Sunday: 9am - 7pm
