Early Bird Last Chance

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.

It is that time of year when we prepare for our officer elections. All positions are open for nomination. If you are a Class I member, basically you've paid for an annual membership for you or your family, then you are eligible to be nominated for any of our positions. If you think you'd like to help with the duties assigned to a position or know another member who might, this is the time to get the name on the election ballet. If you just want to know when we do the election, we vote in January at the Guild's monthly meeting. You can check our Officer's page and contact any of the officer's below to get an idea of what a position entails.

Anyone interested should email the current Guild Secretary/Scribe to formalize their nomination. Alternatively, you can do a nomination online during any of our business meetings prior to the election meeting in January.

We are saddened to report that Duke Seifried (Uncle Duke) passed away on September 29th, 2018. His miniature game extravaganzas, El Cid and The Black Gate, were the stars of the Guild's convention back in November of 2009 when he was our Special Guest.

Duke was an artist, designer, sculptor, painter, dioramist, model builder, product developer, game designer, writer, public speaker, musician, music arranger, entrepreneur, and gamemaster. He was the driving force in several firms in the early pioneering days of gaming: Der Kriegspielers, Custom Cast and Heritage USA. He was the first miniatures manufacturer to create licensed gaming figures from The Lord of the Rings, John Carter of Mars and Star Trek! Later at TSR, he was responsible for getting Dungeons & Dragons into mass market book stores like Waldenbooks and B-Daltons where many gamers of a certain age first discovered it.

But we knew him best as good old Uncle Duke - as he was affectionately known to every wargamer. We were honored and blessed to have had him at many shows in Kansas City over the years, and we look forward to his next regeneration.
