Another Kingdom-Con has come and gone. Thank you all for being a part of this fantastic celebration of friends, games and good times. We exploded this year! More events, more gamers and more awesome. Thank you to all our sponsors and volunteers who helped make this happen. Looking forward to seeing everyone next year!
Kingdom-Con starts on Thursday and we are excited to start gaming! This article is going to include some helpful tips about the convention and what to do when you arrive at the hotel.
Once you are ready to go to the con, the first thing you should do is head over to Registration. It will be right in the main hall with some very nice people sitting down ready to get you set up. Eventbrite gave everyone tickets, you are welcome to print those out, but if you do not that is ok! Make sure you have your ID and the Registration Staff will be able to get your badge and send you on your way!
There are all kinds of events going on at Kingdom-Con. Lots of events are scheduled tournaments and demos, while many games are casual. You can find the schedule online and we will also have a printed schedule. The Board Game Room will have a White Board where you can sign-up for games, as well as another copy of the schedule if you need help finding a game. We encourage people to play all kinds of games. Check out a game at our Game Library, or bring some from home. The Board Game room will have the most open space, so if you want to find a place to play, that will be the best place to look.
Our Vendor Room is right by Registration and we encourage you to check out all the exciting vendors that are here at Kingdom-Con 2016. The Vendor Hall Hours are posted on the website, so be sure to visit them when it is open. From Game Stores, Carrying Cases, Games Manufacturers, Game Accessories and much more, the Vendor Hall is full of exciting companies and products. Be sure to check it out!
We also have a Prize System called The Treasury. As you play games you will win tokens! The system roughly works out to one token an hour. Your GMs will have tokens and if you have questions about the Token System, feel free to ask our Staff at the Treasury Room. Those Tokens can be turned in for Prizes in the Prize Room. These Prizes are provided to us by our sponsors and can range from promo cards to board games and prints. Trade in your Tokens for Prizes with the Treasury Staff.
Along with the gaming events, we have some special events going on. The Flea Market is on Friday Night upstairs from 8pm-11pm. Check out what the community has brought to sell, so see what is available! We are also having The Draconic Awards, brought to us by WGC. This is a high level painting competition and we are looking forward to seeing the entries. It will be the 3rd Annual Fancy Friday too! Be a part of the sharp-dressed group at Kingdom-Con, who wears their best and enjoys a night of classy gaming. Also, there is The Drunk Quest Tournament of Champions on Saturday Night. This will be our 4th year with this special event and we are anticipating the epic night that it brings. To sign-up for this event, head over to the Ninja Division/Drunk Quest Booth in the Vendor Hall. Sign up early, because it sells out!
We love the party environment at Kingdom-Con and we encourage everyone to maintain a safe, responsible and respectful attitude during the show. To help with this, we would like everyone to make sure they clean up after themselves, take showers and get plenty of rest. Please remember that Kingdom-Con is a marathon, not a sprint. Also, we have Kingdom-Con Cups and T-Shirts for sale. We do not like Red Party Cups or Open Bottles at the event, so if you would like to enjoy your drink, please pick up a Kingdom-Con Cup at the Registration Booth.
Be sure to explore the convention! The con isn’t just the main ballrooms. The Role-Playing Games are over in the Bungalows across the parking lot and the Hobby Events are in the Paradise Room across from the Hotel Lobby. Kingdom-Con grows every year and as we expand out into the hotel, be sure to check out what is going on.
If you ever have any questions or need help, please let any of the Staff know. We want to make sure everyone feels safe and has a good time at Kingdom-Con. We work hard all year round to bring this event to you and it’s going to be a good time! Looking forward to seeing you there!
Kingdom-Con is this week! We are looking forward to seeing everyone on Thursday and start the weekend of gaming!
Monday (April 25th) is the last day for Pre-Registration at the discounted price. Pre-Registration will close at 10pm PST. Badges can be purchased at the door each day. A 4-day badge is $60 and Single day Badges are $20.
Event Pre-Registration will also be closing as well, so make sure to sign up for events that you still want to play in. Many events, such as board games and tournaments will still take players at the con, so if you do not sign up, you can show up at the show and see if there are openings.
Its going to be an exciting convention and we are looking forward to a great weekend! If you have any questions, please send us an email at – email@example.com
