About


Impossible Realities is a fan based experience dedicated to gaming culture and community. Impossible Realities has been a boon to hobby gaming since Impossible Realities was founded in 2001 to make annual gaming conventions in Saint John. This year’s event will allow you to meet new and old freinds and try to do them in, but in good fun. Stay tuned!

History
Impossible Realities has come to meet a need for Saint John and the Maritimes. Dana Betts, Melissa Woodcock, Eric Merzetti and Matt Mazerolle got together to build a gaming experience rich with diversity giving new players a taste of what else is offered.  Over the years, many of the core members have come and gone as is the way of things, but Dana Betts has remained one of the original drivers for this event.  Currently, Steve Henderson, Gabrielle Bernard, Shelby Deluney and Dana Betts are the central organizational core for attaining prize sponsorship, Geb is our inspiration, Shelby is our multimedia / marketing/ promotions guru, and Steve being the coordinator for games.

2017 marks year SIXTEEN of this annual full weekend gaming convention, as well the annual March To Oblivion one day event held during the last Saturday of the March Break. Several games are long time favorites now including Circus Imperium, D&D / RPGA and Call of Cthulhu. Each year the call goes out to bring new experiences for out attendees and Impossible Realities has been a success ever since. The strong sponsor support program allows Impossible Realities to give away game related prizes to many of it players, some just for playing. We also offer demos for sponsors and some are company representatives, such as Chaosium for Call of Cthulhu.
