Event Submission Begins July 27th, 2019 for Gary Con XII- so buy a badge and submit your events!

Shortly after event submission closes, our staff will create the online event catalog and announce Event Registration for attendees where you can reserve your seat at the various events and tables. We typically close event submission near the end of the calendar year.

Registering at Gary Con

Many people prefer to plan their gaming out by pre-registering for events using TableTop.Events, our convention management service. However if you didn’t pre-register or you decided you wanted to play even more games at Gary Con – no problem!  We want people to come and play lots of games and we don’t charge any fee to play 99% of the games at Gary Con.  Just walk into one of our gaming areas near the top of the hour and look for the GREEN placards on the tables.  A green placard means the table is looking for players.  Just walk up say hello and ask if you can join the game. A  RED sign denotes the table is full or the game is already underway and they cannot accept walk up players. 

Open Gaming:

Gary Con has 24-hour gaming access at the convention center from Thursday 7 a.m. to Sunday 4pm. In addition to the scheduled events, many tables will be reserved for Open Gaming where you are free to find an open table or seat to run or play your own unplanned event.

Event Types:

Gary Con was started to celebrate the life of Gary Gygax, so many of the events are Old School games— in many cases your DM may be the original author or designer! However, any type of game is welcome: board games, card games, miniature war games, pen & paper RPGs, etc. At any given table you’ll find any and all versions of Dungeons & Dragons and its progeny, cyberpunk heists, ships-of-the-line bombarding each other, car and chariot racing, Allies storming the Normandy beaches, jousting knights, or space marines desperately fighting off xenomorphs.
