Gamers galore at this years ‘Coulee Con’

La Crosse Center hosts 5th Coulee Con event

Gamers are gathering in La Crosse for three-days of comic book convention fun.

Coulee Con kicked-off Friday at the La Crosse Center and goes through Sunday, Aug. 18. This is the fifth year La Crosse has hosted the event.

People can take part in role-playing activities, collectible card games, a silent auction, and much more.

Whether you’re a seasoned gaming veteran or are just learning, organizers say there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Coulee Con Coordinator, Josh Hertel says, “The convention is all about bringing different gamers together, and I think that in itself is a really great goal. Here we’ve got people that are doing role-playing games over here, we’ve got people who are playing magic the gathering over here. It’s a really open space for everybody to kind of work together and game together.”
