What is AcadeCon?

We at The RPG Academy podcast have had the extreme good fortune of building a community of wonderful gamers that listen to our podcast and want to play games with us. More than anything, we thrive on interacting with our listeners and fans. This is the true purpose of AcadeCon. In addition to playing games with friends, both old and new, AcadeCon offers almost unprecedented access to some amazing RPG designers, authors, and some of your favorite podcasting personalities. At AcadeCon, these people are there to have fun and play games, just like you. Join into one of their events and don’t be surprised if they join into one of yours!

If you’re still not convinced that AcadeCon is the place for you, please consider our motto: Gaming with friends, old and new!

If that sounds like something you’d like to support then this is the place for you.

What's AcadeCon all about?

AcadeCon is specifically designed to be a smaller, non-traditional convention. We are not trying to (nor do we want to) compete with or replace the huge conventions that attract a national audience. At our convention, you're going to get access to some of the most amazing GMs and players from all over, a better chance to play in the games you want, the opportunity to spend time and game with special guests, and time to hang out with some of the best gamers in the world—the fans of our show!

Whether you are one of our listeners, are interested in meeting and playing with some of our special guests, or just found us by accident, we hope you'll consider grabbing a badge and sitting down to play games with friends, old and new, with us this November.

AcadeCon 2022 is our 10th annual gaming convention and we're hoping to get back to our successful past events going into the future (that makes as much sense as any X-men comic, right?)


Sponsored by Double Exposure, the Envoy program is unique and awesome! The Double Exposure team will provide us with about 25 brand-new games that you can try out during AcadeCon. Every time you play a demo, you are entered into a drawing to win that game! You can play the same game multiple times to get a better chance at winning something you really enjoy or play them all and see if Lady Luck is smiling on you.

Open Game Library: all badge holders are able to check out any of our game library games free of charge (with ID) during our regular event hours.

ARTEMIS Space Bridge.

Our inner sci-fi nerds are insanely happy to have this chance to pull on those costumes that we don't tell anyone about and log some time on the Artemis Space Bridge Simulator.
