Games run through the GM's choice of Virtual Tabletop and/or through ConTessa's Discord server.

Friends of ConTessa Game Fest


All events are virtual. No, we won't be at the Empire State Building, we were just required to use an address. :)

Join us on the ConTessa Discord Server!

With COVID-19 hitting the convention scene hard, we at ConTessa thought this would be the perfect time to go back to our roots and create a virtual convention, allowing people to share their passion for tabletop games and get some good gaming in while also doing the socially responsible thing of isolating themselves.

Because this is about the social responsibility of the entire community, we're creating this as a 'Friends of ConTessa' convention, suspending our usual requirement that leaders be marginalized. For the Friends of ConTessa Cyberspace Game Fest, anyone can run a game so long as you adhere to our Code of Conduct and GM Rules!


Patreon Patrons!

Want to increase your chances of getting into the game you want? Become a Patron at any level, and you'll gain early access to game registration! As GMs submit their games during the week of the 16-21, you'll be able to instantly purchase tickets. Non-Patrons will have to wait until we open game registration on Sunday, March 22!

In addition, Patrons at the $5 level and up will get the opportunity to join creator-run games and interact with creators on a private channel in our Discord. We'll add a list of who those people are as they become available!

Information for GMs and Event Runners

We're looking for GMs and Event Runners to facilitate any type of event you can possibly run online, but mostly games! Each GM is welcome to use the online platform they're most comfortable with. List what that will be under the 'Platform' form field when submitting games.

GMs are welcome and encouraged to use our Discord server for audio and text chat. We'll make custom channels for your game! Just join the #channel-request room, let us know what you need, and we'll set it up. We have Sidekick and RPBot to help out with the dice rolling as well.

If you have any questions at all, direct them to, and one of our helpful staff will get back to you!
