Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing restrictions, including those relating to the service, transportation and hospitality industries, we regret to inform you that we are forced to cancel our event this year.
It is an extremely difficult decision for us, but we must bear in mind that the possibility of reaching our convention has been very limited, and even, for some of our special guests, it has become impossible.
We hope that you will understand.
We don’t give up, though, and we want CarcosaCon to return to the cultist map. So today we can promise you that as soon as the the situation stabilizes, we will meet again for the glory of the Elder Ones.
Anyone who has purchased tickets (and accommodation) through our website is asked to contact us at: email@example.com.
If you bought several tickets or you were going to take with you an accompanying person whose contact details were not included in our database, please send this information on.
Iä! Iä! Cthulhu fhtagn!
W związku z trwającą pandemią COVID-19 oraz wciąż trwającymi obostrzeniami, w tym tymi dotyczącymi branży usługowej, transportowej i hotelarskiej, z przykrością musimy poinformować, że jesteśmy zmuszeni odwołać w tym roku nasz event.
Jest to dla nas niezmiernie trudna decyzja, musimy mieć jednak na uwadze to, że możliwość dotarcia na nasz konwent została bardzo ograniczona, a nawet, dla niektórych z naszych specjalnych gości, stało się to niemożliwe.
Mamy nadzieję, że spotka się to z Waszym zrozumieniem.
Nie poddajemy się jednak i chcemy, by CarcosaCon wróciło na mapę kultystów. Dziś więc możemy Wam obiecać, że gdy sytuacja się ustabilizuje, spotkamy się na naszej imprezie ku chwale Przedwiecznych.
Każda osoba, która dokonała przez naszą stronę zakupu biletów (i zakwaterowania) proszona jest o kontakt pod adresem: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jeśli kupowaliście kilka biletów lub mieliście zamiar przyjechać z osobą towarzyszącą, której danych kontaktowych nie posiadamy w naszej bazie, bardzo prosimy żebyście przekazali tę informację dalej.
Iä! Iä! Cthulhu fhtagn!
CarcosaCon is a unique, international convention, its target audience being the most devoted fans of Call of Cthulhu and other games set in the world of the Cthulhu Mythos, created by H.P. Lovecraft, who wish to experience a memorable weekend full of dread and terror.
CarcosaCon takes place over three spring days full of activities curated for gamers, in the atmospheric Czocha Castle near the Polish-Czech border. It is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to meet legendary RPG creators, talk and play with them in a low-key environment. What else is there, waiting for the players? The halls and chambers of the Czocha castle are full of nooks and crannies, perfect for RPG sessions, a games room full of Cthulhu-related games, a tavern hall, original lectures, an exciting LARP, a gripping escape room and dungeons filled with never-before uncovered, terrifying secrets. All this within a scenic castle overlooking a tranquil, yet mysterious lake.
CarcosaCon is an international convention, where the primary language used is English. The aim of the convention is to combine game-playing as a hobby with a weekend getaway with friends. The participants may choose to stay in the rooms available in the Czocha Castle itself for the night or in other facilities located nearby. The accommodation options provided also include boarding.
The Czocha Castle (German: Tzsocha) was erected in the mid-13th century to serve as a border stronghold. In the Middle Ages, it passed on from one distinguished family to another. Unfortunately, in the year 1793, a great fire devoured the Castle almost wholly, including the archives kept since the Middle Ages, which in turn resulted in the fact that many of its secrets remain buried… In 1902 the Castle was purchased for 1.5 million marks by a tobacco tycoon from Dresden, Ernst von Gutschow, who almost immediately began the remodeling process of the property. Rumour has it that during the 2nd World War, the Castle was home to the Abwehr Deciphering School. However, there is no evidence supporting this thesis. Gutschow lived in the castle until 1945, then died a year later under mysterious circumstances… You can learn more about the castle’s many mysteries during a guided tour! ATTENTION! Due to its historical nature and architecture, there are no facilities for the disabled in the Castle. There are no elevators or wheelchair ramps; instead, there is a fair amount of narrow staircases.
The Czocha Castle is located 3 km eastward from Leśna.

CarcosaCon distilled the essence of Cthulhu roleplaying into one weekend: knowledge, camaraderie, and a haunted castle. It was also one of the most professional, smooth-running first conventions I’ve ever attended.
CarcosaCon was a wonderful experience: from the stunning venue (perfect for a horror-based convention) to the enthusiastic attendees. It was lovely to be among such illustrious guests and such friendly gamers, all looked after by the excellent convention organisers.
I had a great time at CarcosCon – the castle is very atmospheric, the food was fantastic, and the people very welcoming. The whole convention is well organised and perfect for a weekend of great games, talks, and socialising – with the majority of the events in English. I had a wonderful time!
Call of Cthulhu thrives on atmosphere, isolation and shadows. CarcosaCon at Czocha Castle has all that, plus incredible hosts and wonderful fellow gamers from around the world. It is an unforgettable experience, and the best possible place to lose your sanity for a weekend!
Friendly, relaxed, and well-run, Carcosa Con would be a must-go game event even without its perfect venue. What seminar isn’t improved by having someone arrive through a secret passageway?
