GM Information

Game submission and registration is now closed while we work up sign-up sheets, badges, and player and GM schedules.

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

Registration Dates

Game submission and registration is now closed while we work up sign-up sheets, badges, and player and GM schedules. Badges can still be purchased at the door.

Game submission, and player registration is open now until midnight Wednesday, October 11, 2023. We'll use the time between closing online reg to formalize badge and event sheet printing. Full weekend badges can be bought at the door for $65.

Ticket sales for early-bird badge purchasers and Patreon patrons of the appropriate tiers will open at noon on Friday, August 11, 2023. Ticket sales for all other badge holders will open at noon on Friday, August 25, 2023.
