Video Gaming

A bigger room means more games! This year’s video gaming room is greatly expanded with three main event screens and more table space for consoles. No more squeezing in and bumping elbows to play a game with your friends. Come in and unwind in-between convention panels, as well as after hours, and see if you have what it takes to be the best gamer at Migration.

We offer a wide variety of video game consoles for people to come and play on at their leisure, both new and old, as well as gathering space for socializing and connecting with other players for handheld multiplayer games. Games and controllers can be checked out with our friendly con staff at the desk.

And of course, we will be hosting several favorite competitive and party games throughout the weekend for you to play, such as

  • Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
  • The Jackbox Party Pack
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  • Rock Band 4
  • Rocket League
  • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
  • Splatoon 2
  • You Don’t Know Jack

Please see the convention schedule (coming soon!) for room hours and event times.

Please be aware that due to limited Wi-Fi access all games and consoles will be restricted to offline-only play, except for special circumstances.


This year we are experimenting with a new system for organizing video game tournaments with Battlefy. Battlefy is a new community e-sports website which allows us to organize tournaments quickly and simply while providing a hassle-free experience for participants with easy sign-up, community chatrooms, and up-to-date score brackets. If we are successful then next year we will consider adding even more tournaments!

Please watch this space for more info on signing up for tournaments.

Please contact us with any questions about video gaming or tournaments at the convention.
