kantcon dragon gm screenEveryone loves KantCon, Kansas City's great summer-time tabletop hobby gaming convention held each July at the Overland Park Convention Center!

For years, paid RPGKC members have enjoyed a 20% discount at KantCon's registration desk when they mention that they are RPGKC members. This effectively extended the Early Bird discount to at-the-door. But it wasn't great for folks who wanted to pre-register and sign-up for events ahead of the convention.

Improved Discount

Today, we are pleased to announce an improvement to the discount that paid RPGKC members receive at KantCon. Paid RPGKC Class I members (both individual and famlies) receive a 20% discount on pre-registration at KantCon! This is no longer just at the door. To get this discount you have to use a special discount code during the checkout process.

Get Your Discount Code

To get your discount code, reach out to an RPGKC officer in person or via email and ask for your code. This may seem a little circuitous, but KantCon wants to err on the safe side to curb any potential abuse.

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

In the message, include your name and the name the account is under if other than you. If you have your member number, then please include that as well. =) An officer will verify that you are a paid member in good standing and get back to you with your discount code.

Membership Lapse? Renew Today!

Membership laps? What a great opportunity to renew and enjoy your benefits! Just login with your existing account (request your username/password if forgotten) and renew.

This weekend is your last chance for Early Bird Tickets! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get your badge while prices are their lowest. This is also your last opportunity to buy one of our special Early Bird Packages. They’re the only way to get extra dice, a 2019 KantCon T-shirt, and other merchandise at a value combined with your badge purchase! Check out this link for full details and to buy your badge now: https://www.kantcon.com/buy-a-badge

Our VIG packages will be on sale for only one more month! This will ensure our KantCon representative will have plenty of time to work with you on your custom adventure. This badge also comes with a lot of SWAG, including a custom VIG T-shirt, and our first ever KantCon water bottle, exclusive for our VIG gamers. We only have one more VIG spot, so grab it before it’s gone! https://www.kantcon.com/product-page/vig-badges

Also, don’t forget, our event submission is now open! We are taking submissions for any and all games you want to run at KantCon. All you need to do is fill out the form here after you have a badge: https://www.kantcon.com/event-submission

Lend a Hand

Do you like KantCon and want to see it continue for years to come? Then we need your help!  We're looking to add motivated gamers to our volunteer and coordinator staff.  It takes a lot of time and energy to keep a convention running smoothly, but with a great team the load is distributed evenly and easier to bear.  Without appropriate staff at the convention, attendees may struggle to find and enjoy their events.  And without appropriate coordinators working behind the scenes, KantCon may struggle to organize and exist in the future.  Whether you only have a few hours to spare or are interested in more involvement, we’d love to hear from you!  In return for your efforts, you’ll get a free badge to the convention, a few other rewards, and pride in knowing that you’ve contributed to an awesome gaming community in Kansas City.

Author and translator of over 200 different titles on military history ranging from the Middle Ages through the Korean War, with a heavy emphasis on the Wars of the French Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars and WWII. George has also been a US Navy Captain, director of the Napoleonic Society of America and the Napoleonic Alliance, and he was even an HMGS-East board member, but we won't hold that against him.
