The time has come! Today we are opening event signups to all badge holders for Midwest GameFest, our four-day tabletop game convention being held this November 10-13, 2016 at Stoney Creek Hotel and Conference Center in Independence, Missouri. Early-bird badge holders began event signup last Monday, October 3rd and now everyone can get in on the action.

Head on over to check out our event selection and signup for events! Not everything is in yet, with some organized play events in and some missing (D&D Adventurers League, Shadowrun Missions coming soon), cosplay events, and other panels, but there are tons of game events to choose from.

» SIGN UP FOR EVENTS

Badges and Add-Ons Still Available

If you haven't bought a badge yet, now's the time! Four-day, single-day, and VIG badges are still available. And if you haven't seen any of our cool add-ons, like t-shirts, mugs, dice, raffle tickets, and organized play perks, then you are missing out. Head on over now to check out what's still available!

As you know, this year we decided against a Kickstarter. We didn't know what to expect, but attendee response to our new badge system and add-on store has been phenomenal! But we can always do better. The convention is a non-profit effort run by volunteers with limited resources, and so every little bit of support, time, and money helps a tremendous amount.

What About Add-Ons?

This year we decided against a Kickstarter. Payment arrangements with our new venue allowed us to pay the majority of our rental fees after the event, rather than before as in years past. Whew! But just because there's no Kickstarter doesn't mean there aren't great "reward add-ons" for your badges! Our super cool V.I.G. packages, available here, already include a fantastic selection of merchandise. These items, and more, are also available as add-ons in the Midwest GameFest Store. We've got great commemorative items like mugs, bags, t-shirts, and dice.
