Game Day 20190803

Our monthly Game Days are moving from the second Saturday of each month to the first Saturday.

Reason for the Change

Over the last few years we’ve run into several conflicts with other events also scheduled for the second Saturday. An informal poll on Facebook determined that the first Saturday worked better for more people, so we pulled the trigger and made the change.

We usually have a raffle for attendees where we distribute donated merchandise and gift certificates.

We use typically two or three six-person tables at a time. We normally have three game periods starting at 11 a.m., 3 p.m., and 7 p.m.

Event Submissions

Got an event you’d like to run? Shoot it our way and we’ll get it on the schedule and promote it in our social channels. We can’t guarantee players, though, but feel free to jump into someone else’s game if yours does make.

Event Sign-ups

Event sign-ups are handled via our Warhorn page. Guarantee your seat at the table by signing up today!

Ongoing Campaigns

We have some ongoing campaigns specific to the RPGKC for Dungeons and Dragons, Shadowrun, and Legend of the Five Rings. Players come and go each session with no commitment, and new players are always welcome. Campaigns are tracked via the forums at our website. We also have a Tales from the Loop campaign being planned, along with board games and one-shot adventures.

Resource Page

We feature recurring games and other events on our Resources page at Resources page. Do you have a recurring event we should list? Let us know and we’ll get it added.

Social Outlets

We also maintain a Meetup.com page, Facebook group, and Twitter channel where we list events. Just let us know of your event and we’ll share it with our audiences (see links below).

See you there!

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.

» Renew Your Membership

Not a member but would like to be? Great! Membership is very inexpensive and pays for itself in discounts to area conventions.

Don't Delay

Don't delay! Event submissions are underway now, and you don't want to lose your seat! =)

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.
