KC Game Fair

Extra Life 2013The RPGKC is proud to have been contacted by the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in regards to participating in this event. We will be reaching out to the various local game stores to see if they are going to participate and then, we will be letting you know where to go to get your game on. This is a charity event to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Hospital Network. Basically, we play games, get people to sponsor us/donate and have fun with the feeling of helping out our community at the same time.

What do I mean by helping out OUR community? Well, when you go to the site to register and donate money, you get to pick what Children’s Miracle Network Hospital you donate to. (Our local happens to be KU Medical Center’s Pediatrics.) If you decide not to register, but want to simply donate, click on our link and join our team! I am captaining the Role Players Guild of Kansas City, so if you have any issues, contact me (Doug Howard, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and I’ll do what I can to help you out.

When: November 22-24, 2013

Where: Hilton Kansas City Airport

The KC Game Fair is an annual gaming convention bringing a number of long standing KC area gaming conventions under one roof and expanding the offerings to include games of most any type (excluding gambling). We also reach out to KC metro game stores and gaming clubs to raise awareness of these establishments and groups during the convention.

The Kansas City Game Fair launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their 5th Annual convention. As in the past the KC Game Fair promised to bring the best in gaming to Kansas City.

In response, the gaming community poured forth incredible support to insure that the convention continues yet another year.  With the success of this year's Kickstarter and the help of some very special people, we are certain this will be the best convention the mid-west has to offer.

If you didn't get in on the Kickstarter, you still can show your support by volunteering and submitting events.

So as promised, the KC Game Fair returns to the Hilton KC Airport once again. A big thanks to all the kickstarter supporters and the legions of people who make the Role Playing Guild of Kansas City a success.  We couldn't do this without you.

Join some fellow gamers online.

Time: 10a – 2p

 KC Game Fair

Thank you to all of the attendees for making this year's KC Game Fair the wonderful experience that it was. Thank you to all of the vendors and special guests who came out to add value for our attendees. Special thank you to AEG, Fantasy Flight, Hero Labs, Misty Gates, Pathfinder Society, Guild World, and 31st Century Games (via the wonderful Heroes of Rokugan players). Because of all of the efforts from all of you attendees, special guests, vendors, and donors, we raised 1208 dollars for Harvesters. Oh, and thank you to those who put items in the Gamers' Garage Sale. A percentage of each sale there also is donated to Harvesters. Heroes of Rokugan, thank you for your efforts with the Toys for Tots program. Heroes of Rokugan, Pathfinder Society, Shadowrun Missions, and Guildworld was well represented this year. I appreciate the work all of you did to help make this convention what it was. Those who volunteered, no matter how many hours, and those who judged, thank you. Now, time to sleep for about a month.

– Doug Howard, Guildmaster
