A first-of-its-kind board game convention held at Dubbo's Western Plains Cultural Centre during the June long weekend attracted more than 70 participants from as far away as the Blue Mountains.
The participant numbers exceeded expectations and DubCon organiser Adam Clark said he hoped to bring the event back bigger and better in 2020.
"We were expecting 50 people to turn up and we're pushing 70, and we're only halfway through," Mr Clark told the Daily Liberal on Sunday.
"A lot of people have brought their kids along and it's just a really good community event."
Mr Clark said the good thing about board games was they could be enjoyed by anyone and everyone.
"It doesn't matter what walk of life you're from, you can sit down and play a game.
"We've had disabled people playing, young, old, men, women, everyone... it's very inclusive."
DubCon gave people something to do and is "a potential tourism pull" to attract visitors to Dubbo, Mr Clark said.
Jacob Grey was one such guest who ventured to DubCon all the way from Springwood in the Blue Mountains.
"My good friend lives in Dubbo and it's his birthday," he said.
"He messaged me and said this [DubCon] was on so I decided to come to Dubbo."
