Shoot the Moon hosts table-top gaming events that are designed to maximize social connections across generations. At StarCon, expert Croupiers (game masters) facilitate scheduled activities for those that want a guide and our game library is available for you to explore. We have classic board games, RPGs, mini games, and modern board games, so there’s something for everyone to enjoy!

This year, the convention theme is ‘The NATURE of Gaming.’ The majority of Croupier-led games will align with this theme, from tactical games such as Planet (Blue Orange) to strategy games such as Wingspan (Stonemaier Games) and everything in between. What better way to celebrate ‘The NATURE of Gaming’ than on the beautiful Isles of Shoals.
