DECATUR - Games for Troops, a non-profit organization that provides games to men and women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, is inviting central Illinois residents to attend the second-annual Heroicon gaming convention, from May 20 through May 22.

Heroicon will be held at the Decatur Conference Center and Hotel, with proceeds being used to send board and card games to U.S. Military members and military hospitals.  According to Games for Troops officials, more than $3,000 was raised for Games For Troops during last year's event.

Heroicon features a large open gaming area with a huge gaming library for attendees to try out.  Among the events for this year's convention include a Friday Night Trivia Night, a Game Auction, sanctioned tournaments for Magic: the Gathering players, and more.
