Nerdy Things To Do In Edmonton This Weekend Sep. 15th-17th

The weekend before the Expo was busy last year as I recall… and it’s certainly busy again. The big event is that a brand new Board Game Café (The Pawn & Pint) is opening not too far from West Edmonton Mall. There’s also a 50 hour improv apocalyptic marathon and League of Legends Tournaments at Overklocked and the Microsoft Store (no link, sorry).

You can swing by Table Top Café and get yourself 3D printed into a game, try Magic: The Gathering for free in multiple stores across Edmonton, a big Harry Potter Pop-up shop, and there’s another geeky clothing swap at Variant Edition on Sunday.

Drop me a line at if there’s something I’ve missed!
