Updated hotel information:

Well, the hotel is sold out. Not our block, the whole hotel. They've expanded our block at least once, and not only is that full, but there's literally no room at the inn. Only in Bethlehem, am I right? Anyhoo, right next door (almost walking distance) to the Best Western is a Hampton Inn & Suites, which we hope still has room for those of you who sat on getting a hotel until the last minute. Here's a link to their site.

GM Information

Friday night and Saturday afternoon have a very full schedule for board games, card games, and RPGs in the Grande Ballroom. Games submitted for those times might not be able to be scheduled, or might have to be placed in overflow areas, so please consider alternate times.

We are always looking for GMs to run games at our convention. GMs who run 12 or more hours of games are eligible for a free badge and a T-shirt.

On Saturday, from 6 p.m to 8 p.m., we have our Big Event, where we announce contest winners (e.g., coloring contest, cosplay contest), tricky tray winners, and the dice guess winner, then hold an auction. We will not schedule games during that time.

Those wishing to judge for organized campaigns (Pathfinder Society, Starfinder Society, D&D Adventurers League, Shadowrun, etc.) and miniatures games (Star Wars, Star Trek, BattleTech, etc.), email our Director of Gaming, Erik Zane at
