The 6th Annual KC Game Fair brings the best tabletop games back to Kansas City! RPG's, designer board games, miniatures and much more!

When and where is it?

KC Game Fair 2014 is being held November 20-23, 2014 at the Hilton Kansas City Airport in Kansas City, Missouri. For location details and event listings see the KC Game Fair website at kcgamefair.com

What is it? 

The KC Game Fair is an annual game convention bringing a number of long standing KC area game conventions under one roof. The Role-Players Guild of Kansas City(Shauncon), Heart of America Historical Miniatures Gaming Society (Borderwars), and Blockhead bring you RPGs, historical miniatures, board games, living and other organized play, regional game clubs, game designers, dealers, benefit events, a gamers’ garage sale and more!

ShaunCon, Borderwars, and Blockhead

This will be our 6th Fair and the 4th at the Hilton Kansas City Airport. Last year was a very successful year, and we're hoping to continue the momentum of building a great event right here in Kansas City! 

Why a Kickstarter?

Last year, we were able to successfully raise half of our budget using Kickstarter. This year, our cost is $6001.85 to rent the ballrooms and tables for the games. By allowing our guests to effectively pre-pay for their access through Kickstarter, we avoid having any one person or organization stuck making a deposit months in advance and having to wait until the week of the event to get paid back. 

Our costs are now as follows: 

    • Initial $520.00 deposit paid May 29, 2014 
    • An additional $2740.93 is due October 1, 2014 
    • An additional $2740.92 is due November 13, 2014 

Our goal this year is to raise at least $2500 towards the deposit and first payment. Anything above that will be applied to the balance until all costs have been met. Full admission options to the Fair are based upon the Kickstarter level pledged. This effectively allows us to bring in some pre-registration revenue and let people contribute what they can to help us keep it going. Last year we were successful in using Kickstarter to fund approximately 50% of costs with the rest being covered by regular admission. We're looking to do the very same thing for 2014! 

Discounts

Contribute to the Kickstarter if you want to help pre-fund the event, don’t care about GM or volunteer discounts, or want one of the great special rewards available only to backers. Normal pre-registration, available after the Kickstarter is over, will allow GMs and volunteers interested in discounts to sign up with their normal discounts. See the Pricing page for discount details.

To be clear: With Kickstarter, there are no GM or volunteer discounts, but there are reward perks.
