Exploring Western New York

The city of Buffalo has had a large resurgence due to both public and private investments. This year we’ve moved the convention to the middle of summer to avoid any possibilities of snow and to give you folks the chance to not only experience the Queen City Conquest but the wonderful city and the surroundings.

Buffalo’s summer is also Buffalo festival season. You can’t go a weekend without a festival, concert series or event happening morning noon or night. If you go to visitbuffaloniagara.com you’ll discover everything happening in and around the city during the time surrounding the QCC. If you’re still here let’s give you a few places you might want to start.

Canalside

Located on Buffalo’s waterfront, Canalside is a great outdoor location to play and enjoy everything from kayaking and water biking – which you can rent – to live music and lovely walks on the water.

Food

Are you a foodie? Yes, Buffalo is well known for wings. If you’re a true wing connoisseur we have something called the Wing Trail. Have you tried  Loganberry soda? Sponge candy? Paula’s Donuts? Lloyds Tacos truck? Lake Effect Ice Cream? A Roast Beef On Weck?

Aside from those few items there are a number of other amazing restaurants and food trucks. To top it all off the Taste of Buffalo is the same weekend as the convention. There may be jaunt to the 2nd largest “Taste of” in the United States.

Niagara Falls

The Falls are less than 30 minutes north of Buffalo. There, you can experience the amazing view of Niagara Falls. Maybe you’d like to stalk your way through the Cave of the Winds or take a ride up to the falls on the Maid of the Mist and feel the power of millions of gallons of falling water. These adventures could be great inspiration for a future game or just an enjoyable experience. On the Canadian side of the Falls is Clifton Hill. If you like the experience of a New Jersey styled boardwalk or the arcades of old then you’ll find plenty of places to have fun when you visit.

Like many great cities exploring Buffalo is an experience. From our unique architecture – Frank Lloyd Wright anyone – to our unique independent music scene there is something for everyone to love Western New York.

New Location & Dates

Hey folks. Just wanted to let you know we have a new location this year and new dates.

We will be at Daemen College. The facility is quite lovely and has allowed us to reduce some of our cost which we’re passing on to you.

The convention is going to be from July 12th to the 14th.

30 Day Sale

In the coming days we’ll be having more details for you and we want you to know we won’t be having a kickstarter but we will be having a 30 day sale and if we sell enough badges during the sale we’ll be able to open up some interesting events and possibly some more guests for this years convention.

Eloy Lasanta is an ENnie Award winning game designer, has created many of his own worlds, such as Part-Time Gods, The Ninja Crusade and AMP: Year One. In addition, he has created several custom systems to power each game, like the newly released Pip System Corebook.

This year, Queen City Conquest will host a new season 8 event for players of all skill levels.

Queen City Conquest will also host the Double Exposure’s Board Game Play to Win game library. A player can not only learn old and new games, but several winners will take home copies of the game they play! Over 50 board games will be available to win as part of our board game library.
