Member Card

If you’ve been a member for a while, you may have noticed that we stopped mailing and handing out membership cards. In this day and age of computer technology, it seemed old fashioned to make people wait on new cards or the replacement ones that they often needed.

Well, all that has changed for the better. We now provide instant access to these precious documents, so you no longer have to track them down. You can even pull them up on your phone when going to one of our sister conventions and prove your membership status without having to dig through a wallet full of other cards.

Welcome, ye minions, to the first (and very messy) blog of the RPGKC Overlord!

Wade TrippFor those who don't know me, I am Wade Gregory Tripp, the person running late all the time to Game Day which I am supposed to be organized.

I had hopes for a stable location (such as the old Riverside chess location that had 40+ people each meeting) without favoring any one of the wonderful stores that have hosted us in the past. Stil...l if you know a good place that might be nice for a gameday, let me know.

There are several other issues that I will work on (and a few more planned).

  1. First off, I am going to try and do a Sunday (or would another day be better) gameday in August for those interested but can't make the normal Saturday.
  2. A better system to sign up for games, rewarding judges, and finding out what people want to.
  3. Prizes!!!  Rewards and motivation for those who come to game day, particularly for those that run things.

If you have ideas, thoughts, or things that can make it better please let me know at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and expect to hear more from me soon with polls to the Facebook group, blogs, general posts, and Game Day announcements... including the fact that June's gameday will be on the 10th at Game Cafe!

Midwest GameFest

Plans are already underway for Midwest GameFest 2017, and we're pretty excited about what we have in store for guests this year: more space, more food options, more types of events! But... we don't have a contracted date just yet due to an issue at our 2017 venue of choice, the fabulous Stoney Creek Hotel and Conference Center in Independence, Missouri.

The Problem

Specifically, a professional sports team has contracted with the hotel for all of their home games this Fall. That's great for the hotel but has played havoc with existing events like ours. Furthermore, it would be easy enough to work around except the team's home game schedule won't be finalized until mid-April. So, we'll be making an official announcement in late April, coinciding with our efforts working at Planet Comicon's tabletop gaming hall. Look for signs there, on this website, and in our social media channels!

Save the Dates

We've had our options narrowed down to the following five four-day weekends this Fall:

  • Oct 12-22
  • Oct 26-29
  • Nov 2-5
  • Nov 9-12
  • Nov 16-19

So pencil us in, and stay tuned for more details in April!

Questions?

Reach out and contact us with any questions or concerns.
