About this event

What is this?

Burning Cat is a tabletop carnival of oversized games, comics, and two-story tall cat monsters. It’s game night distilled into a weekend of creative amusements and hairy fireballs.

The Things You Can Do At Burning Cat

  • Play a Humongous Game of Exploding Kittens. Come play the world’s largest game of Exploding Kittens with cards that are probably taller than you.
  • Experience the Big and Hairy Vending Machine. You could get a glittering dragon egg or you could get a dirty potato. There is no telling what kind of blessings our vending machine will bestow upon you.
  • Play a Massive Game of Freeze Tag. Come help us attempt to set the world record for the world's largest game of freeze tag.
  • No Screens. Lo-Fi Experiences. Come play games that don't involve devices or screens. Almost all of our amusements are analog and emphasize having tactile, hands-on gaming.
  • Play Stupid Games. Carnivalesque Challenges. These games are for warriors, not for deep thinkers.
  • Play Smart Games, Cards, Tabletop, and More. Play an old favorite or discover your next favorite tabletop game. Borrow a game from our massive library and we'll get a table going for you.
  • Step Into the Throw Throw Burrito Dodgeball Cage. This is what happens when you combine card games with dodgeball and then stick players into a caged arena full of chaos and destruction.

Meet Our Guests

The Cat Who Burns

Towering over it all will be our Burning Cat statue. She is our Goddess. Our muse. Our Catleesi. She will preside over the convention like a furry Sauron. There will be a countdown timer at her feet. When the convention ends, she will erupt with the light of a thousand stars. She will implode into something terrible and wonderful. She will transform.

She will "burn."
