WHAT IS WINTER WAR?
is Champaign-Urbana, IL's annual adventure gaming convention, held on an early weekend in February.
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.
