Con on the Cob is the universe's most Off the Cob FOUR DAY CELEBRATION OF GAMES, ART, FREAKS, AND FUN. It happens October 6-9, 2022 at Quality Inn & Suites in Richfield, Ohio.
Man, it's like Con on the Cob is, like, a coalescence of all Human experience, refined and distilled into an essential cloud of smiles, exuberance, and companionship. It's an overflowing barrel of raw burning funk with more soul than James Brown and more flavor than lime Jell-O.
It’s a tabletop gaming con, chock full of RPGs, board games, card games, party games, and all sorts of that kind of jazz. It’s also an art fair, with a large selection of talented artists in attendance and an amazing abundance of fantasty, science fiction, horror, and geeky art and art activities. Oh, and it’s The Mother of All Marketplaces, with over 50 vendors showcasing a wide variety of jazz, snazz, and zazz, boosting the geekonomy like old school Robin Hoods (but without the stealing and the giving stuff away for free (ok, not like Robin Hoods. I failed analogy class in Kindergarten). Don’t forget the parties… Did I mention the parties? There are parties. A LOT of them. Also there are other things, like our amazing Special Guests, the Children of the Cob, the Nerdcore Explosion and Comedy Music Extravagasm!, a super sweet Auction, a Games Library, free snacks in the Con Suite, Panels, Workshops, and Demos, a whole track of Cosplay and Fandom related activities, brand new Tabletop Crafting and Theme Park programming tracks, and a massive horde of potential friends and peeps who dig the same things you dig!
