Welcome to Cardboard Caucus!

Central Iowa’s newest tabletop convention! We are looking to host a great event that will give you a great place to sit down with friends (or maybe someone new!?) and play some great games.

This is our first year and we are VERY excited to be bringing a tabletop convention to Des Moines, Iowa.
Please preregister as soon as possible to allow us to plan the best possible event!

What sets us apart as the BEST convention?

You! You being there is what makes our convention the best convention around!

Library and Play-to-Win

We are excited to have Board Game Wagon provide our open gaming library. They will have a selection of more than 1500 games for you to choose from!

We will also have a bunch of play-to-win games (see Events page for list) that you could take home with you just by playing them. If you have ideas you’d like to share to help us make the convention better for you – please reach out to us at info@cardboardcaucus.com


The best place to park is on the north end of the building, where there is a separate entrance for our convention!


Kids 10 and under get in free – but are not able to win Play-to-Win games without a badge
