Shannon Lentz of the Terminal City Tabletop Convention

We speak to Shannon Lentz, project manager at Panda Games Manufacturing and organizer of the Terminal City Tabletop Convention that takes place in Vancouver, BC in  March 2020. 
Shannon tells us the origin story of TCTC and some of the challenges he faced in making the first one happen.
In addition to the amazing Games Library, we discuss the Used Marketplace, #Catan National Qualifier Tournament, Kids Corner, RPG Room and amazing activities that makes TCTC Vancouver's original community con.
We also discuss the ever-popular Proto Alley where some familiar names will present their protoypes. There may be a hint at a future spin-off event in the works. Just saying.
