Exploricon 6 has been scheduled for January 18-19, 2019. We are returning to the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Fitchburg, Wisconsin for two full days of tabletop gaming.

Convention badges and food packages are available! Badge prices are $20 per day, and there is a Friday evening option from 5 pm to 10 pm for $10.

VIG Badges are available for all tickets types for a $25 premium (i.e. a 2 day badge will be $65 instead of $40 for the base badge). The VIG badge includes a red t-shirt with this year's sweet dragon logo (shown above and to the right). The shirts are fitted, so if you prefer a looser fit, we recommend ordering one size larger than normal. The t-shirts will only be available with a VIG badge, they will not be available for purchase separately. In addition to the t-shirt, VIGs get a head start on signing up for events, while general badges have event signup opening on December 9th, 2018 at 10am Central time.

VIG badges will only be available until January 3, 2019.

We don't want to overlook young gamers, so we are offering discounted youth badges. Youth badges are $10 per day. VIG packages are available on youth badges as well for the same $25.


Food packages are available for both Friday and Saturday and can be found in the event listing with the other gaming events. Click "Buy Tickets" after adding a Badge to your cart.

  • Friday: Bagels and Cinnamon rolls for breakfast at 10:30am and a pasta buffet for a late lunch at 2:00pm. (Dietary restriction options are available, please purchase the Dietary Restriction food package.)

  • Saturday: Bagels and Donuts for breakfast at 10:30am and a taco buffet for a late lunch at 2:00pm. (Dietary restriction options are available, please purchase the Dietary Restriction food package.)


Do you have a new game that you are itching to play more of? Are you excited about showing off a game that is an old favorite? Run it at Exploricon! We are looking for game masters to run board games, card games, roleplaying games, and more! Submit your favorite game today!

When you submit a game, we ask for a mobile phone number. This is not a publicly displayed field, we will not give this information out to anyone and it is only visible to the event submitter and the Exploricon organizers. We would like to collect this information in case there is a reason to get a hold of you during the convention because of changes to your event. We really don't want to call you unless we need to speak with you.
