Contrary to popular belief, gaming isn’t the only kind of fun you can have at a game con. We are sensitive to the needs of the adventurous geek and gamer who has pitched in to be part of the con but may not want to spend every waking moment hovering over the table. Yeah… trust me. We know how to offer quality entertainment opportunities outside of the doldrums of endless gaming. For questions about these and other events, contact our event coordinator at [email protected]..
