The Midwest's Longest Consecutively Running Independent Gaming Convention! 


Winter War is Champaign-Urbana, IL's annual adventure gaming convention, held on an early weekend in February.

Winter War started as a small event organized by the Conflict Simulation Society on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1974.

In later years, Winter War was held at the Foreign Languages Building on the campus of the University of Illinois, and then moved off-campus to the Chancellor Hotel in Champaign.

In 2005, after Winter War 32, the Chancellor was condemned and sold, forcing us to find a new location after twelve years.

In 2006, we moved to the Hawthorn Suites. One block south of the old Chancellor site.
