Badge Registration & Event Scheduling

Splotter Con 2024 is our inaugural event celebrating all things Splotter Spellen. Our hope is that Splotter Con offers opportunities for collectors to meet one another, seasoned players to find strong competition, and new players to learn and experience all that Dutch publisher, Splotter (Food Chain Magnate, Bus, Horseless Carriage), has to offer. We will have all 21 Splotter-published games as well as some that inspired the designers.

Splotter Con Games Library will be open the entire con. Game checkout will require a badge. One game checked out at a time per badge. Games must remain in Foster Hall.

Event Scheduling: Everyone has a different preference for planning their cons. I'm one to plan most of my time but I know others like to play it by ear. If you're like me, we encourage you to schedule your events and make them available to other players on this site. I would love to see experienced players volunteering to schedule teaching games too.

Splotter Con Discord: We have a Discord server set up for Con attendees, sponsors & volunteers. You will be asked your Discord Username during registration. We will send you an invite to the server shortly after you register. Our server will enable folks to chat with one another, schedule games, discuss logistics (hotel, food, etc), and plan their convention experience.

Morning Meditation: There will be a guided meditation Saturday thru Monday at ~8:15 AM inside Foster Hall. No prior experience necessary.

I look forward to seeing you all in Pittsburgh!
