Is It Just Games?
What Events are Scheduled?
That's where you come in! We only run events that are requested and sponsored, so get busy! =)
In the past people enjoyed board games, strategy games, role playing games and the like. But there are also usually some non-gaming activities like the women's spa day, a wine tasting competition, a cook-off, yoga, and even a robotics demonstration! See our partial list of games in the BobCon games library to get an idea.Add a comment
What does Sponsoring an event mean?
Where is BobCon Located?
BobCon will be held at the Oak Tree Inn for the first time this year, near I-35 and Rainbow in Kansas City, Kansas. The hotel has an annex called The Village Hall, which has tons of room for gaming, separate areas for kids, board games, role-playing games, and a modest kitchen. This beautiful venue provides ample room for gaming. It also has a full kitchen with buffet counters so food can be accessed at any time and a big basement room which leads directly outside to a area suited for children. There's an Applebee's on-site, and tons of amazing local restaurants within a short distance (those familiar with Southwest Boulevard's food reputation will understand). It is located at 501 Southwest Blvd, Kansas City, KS 66103. Click here for a map and directions.Add a comment
Where Can I Stay in Kansas City?
Several wonderful members of the Kansas City Gaming Community have offered to house those who would like to stay near the convention site. Our out of town guests have first dibs on these rooms, but if you have any desire to avoid to drive to and from the convention please contact BobCon Assisted Housing. There are also several nearby hotels if you prefer a private room. Check our lodging page for a listing and directions.Add a comment
How much for kids?
Kids 12 and under are free (with paid adult)! In the past, if kids were old enough to play games then their parents were sort of expected to pay admission for them (we scrimp and beg each year to pay for the facility). We don't think anyone ever had an issue with this, but this year we're making things a little simpler for parents with a clear kids are free policy. Yay!Add a comment
Can I bring my pet?
Sorry, no pets allowed. However, crated dogs are allowed if a hardship condition exists. Approval must be requested in advance, the dog must remain crated while inside the facility, and you must clean up after him/her with your own equipment. Contact us to make arrangements.Add a comment
Is there wifi available?
Can You Fill Each Slot Every Day?
Dang, That's a Heck of a Drive For Me! Do You Really Expect Me to Come All That Way?
We know that several of the folks invited are from out of state. We don't really expect them all to come, but it's important to us for them to know they're welcome. Plus, they certainly won't come if we don't invite them!Add a comment
