Mission Statement

To support the roleplaying and boardgaming community and industry by hosting an annual convention that brings gamers together in the spirit of competition and fellowship.
Who or what is SCARAB? 
SCARAB stands for: South Carolina Area Role-players and Board-gamers. We are a group of gamers based in the Columbia, South Carolina region. We game! That's what we do. We travel to retailers, conventions and Meetups to demo a variety of games. We travel to as many events as we can throughout the year. Annually, we will host a gaming convention that we hope is a great experience for everyone who attends and we will work very hard to make it so. We will strive to keep the convention rates and fees as low as possible, to give our guests the best return for their money that we are able to deliver.
