Announcing ChaosCon – November 18, 2023

“The chaos, however, is the chaos of a thundercloud, and direction will sporadically and violently appear.” – Mons’s Goblin Raiders

Join us November 18, 2023 for a day of Old School in Canada’s capital, Ottawa. All entry fees and money raised will go to our community’s preferred charity, Ottawa Food Bank. With inflation and people accessing food banks reaching historic numbers, the situation at the Ottawa Food Bank is critical. Old School community: Let’s do our part.

Event details

Why things are different from last year

  • It turns out we’re not a very spicy community so the prize pool is being reallocated into raffle prizes and going deeper into Swiss standings.
  • We’re dropping Premodern this year and going the full 6 rounds (recommended for 33 to 64 players) for Old School for a few reasons:
    • 9 rounds of Magic is A LOT and people were pretty burnt out at the end if they did both events.
    • Only about 50% of people played Premodern.
  • November 18, 2023 is also this year’s date for the Santa Claus parade, which runs by the venue. The later start makes sure no one gets caught in traffic.
