BobCon is a small annual gaming convention held in Kansas City each year. It's more of a gamer's retreat: no vendors, limited seating, and a very limited entry fee.
BobCon is two and a half days of pure gaming satisfaction. You want board games? BobCon's got ‘em. You want roleplaying games? BobCon's got ‘em. You want card or strategy games? BobCon's got ‘em.
April 22 - 24, 2016
BobCon will be held at the Oak Tree Inn for the first time this year, near I-35 and Rainbow at 501 Southwest Blvd, Kansas City, KS 66103.
This year we have increased our pre-event fundraising efforts in order to subsidize registration fees. The goal here is to pay for the event in advance through crowdfunding and sponsorships. We want to ensure you will attend, so if for some reason you are unable to make a donation (or even if you simply do not want to) DO NOT let that stop you from coming. Your presence is what makes BobCon enjoyable. SO BE THERE!
The cost for players/participants is only $10 per day or $20 for the whole three-day weekend. If you aren't playing a game or participating in an event then you pay nothing. Also, children 15 and under cost nothing. There is no discount for paying early – but you can pay at our website to go ahead and get your payment out of the way, or to get in on special backer rewards. We are also happy to accept any additional donations if you feel BobCon is worth it.
Just like other gaming conventions there are slots that folks sign-up to play in games or other events. Event Slots will be 2 hours each and run continuously through the day. Longer games and RPGs may need to take multiple slots (which will be accounted for during scheduling).
This is a kid-friendly event and the children will have an area to play games, watch movies, etc. Suggestions for activities are also appreciated.
