WARPS (the UCC Wargaming And Roleplaying Society) are the organizers of the event and have grown it from a small student event into one of the biggest conventions in the country.
Each year, there are dozens of RPGs from a plethora of systems, CCGs, Heroclix, tabletop wargaming, LARPS, Storygames and more run each day of the weekend.
Warpcon also has a world renowned charity auction where all manner of things are sold. Signed first edition pre-official launch books have been sold, three slots to appear drawn by John Kovalic for a Steve Jackson Games card game, rare collectible cards, Jayne's Hat (as worn by 'Adam Baldwin' from the hit tv show 'Firefly'), and even the first ever 'My Little Cthulhu' toy and more are among the things sold in previous auctions. Warpcon XVI was a joint winner, along with Gaelcon, of the 'Diana Jones Award for Excellence in Gaming' for the charity auctions run each year.
Each year the Committee are delighted to present to a deserving group or individual the Contribution to Irish Gaming Award for their efforts and achievements in Irish Gaming.
