Get ready for a whole new way to do the PrairieCon D&D Tournament!

Get ready for a whole new way to do the PrairieCon D&D Tournament!

In the past, different groups of players have fought and thought their way through the same sets of encounters using the same characters.

This year, we are blowing it wide open!  

Every player and every group will be unique.  They will all be striving toward a goal in a magical City, a goal that will take the effort of everyone in this multi-table game to be successful.  Will you all have the same goal?  Will the City consume you?  Will you find ways to work together while fighting to be the best group of the day?

You’ll have two chances to find out: Be one of the lucky 24 on Saturday or one of the equally lucky 24 on Sunday.

Find a group of six players and sign up for this year’s D&D Tournament on either Saturday or Sunday.  See whether you and your group are brave, lucky and smart enough to survive and thrive in the City of Light and Dark.

Get ready to see an army of characters and a battlefield named for the God of War.

More information will be coming as we get closer to the convention!

Pre-registration is coming up soon, but we STILL need more games!

Pre-registration is coming up soon, but we STILL need more games!

On Friday, May 25th, Pre-registration will go live!

But we’re making one last push to get more games! We want to make sure everyone gets to play as many games as they want in as many slots as they can!! Boardgames, card games, role-playing games, mini games, we will take them all!

AND, we’re even opening up the games list to everyone now, so that you can see what’s already being run, and where you can try to get some more games in.

Check out the games list here

You may be saying to yourself, “But PrairieCon, that’s already an awful lot of games.” YES, it is a lot of games, but it’s not the gigantic list that we normally offer, which is why we’re asking you again to look over your games library, take a look at our current games list, and then contact games@prairiecon.com and let us know what you’d like to run!

Attached are the .pdfs with the information you will need.

 

Email us at games@prairiecon.com with your games submissions and any questions you may have.

PrairieCon will be at Assiniboine Community College this year, on June 15-17, 2016. Like last year, we have 17 slots running throughout the weekend with a duration of 2 hours each. In this way, we offer many shorter game slots with the option of double or longer slot opportunities for longer games.

Calling for more games!

Calling for more games!

PrairieCon prides itself on providing a lot of games for people to choose from. When we say a lot, we mean LIKE A LOT.  But for that to happen we still need more games and more people to run those games!

We have just over two months to go before the convention, and we have about half the number of games that we want to make the convention, so, with a little bit of suppressed panic, we ask you, would you run some games at the convention this year?  Boardgames, card games, role-playing games, mini games, we need them all!

PrairieCon 2018 will be at Assiniboine Community College this year, on June 15-17, 2018. Like last year, we have 17 slots running throughout the weekend with a duration of two-hours each. In this way, we offer many shorter game slots with the option of double or longer slot opportunities for longer games.

Attached are the .pdfs with the information you will need.

PrairieCon 39 call for games!

Traps. Whether in the deepest of space, in the darkness of dungeons or in the deception of boardgames, traps exist everywhere around us. In honour of this everpresent thing, PrairieCon celebrates the trap. Yes, PrairieCon 2018 will be a fun trap for us all! Whether you are a builder, a disarmer or an occasional target, this is the year for you!

To make this trap happen (or disarm it, your call), we need your help. We need volunteers to run games and do the many other important tasks that make the con a success.

Become a PrairieCon Gamemaster or a PrairieCon Volunteer. Or both! The more games we have, the more successful we can be and the more perfect PrairieCon will become. If running games is not for you, we have other ways to help, like setting up, trap detection, cleaning up, running the canteen, and registration.

PrairieCon 2018 (XXXIX/39) will be at Assiniboine Community College this year, 15-17 June 2018. Similar to last year, we have 17 slots each with a duration of 2 hours. With this schedule, we may offer many shorter games with the option of double or longer slot opportunities for longer games. See the attached slot schedule pdf.

We need the details about your games by March 20.

As a way of thanking you for making PrairieCon a success, Gamemasters and volunteers alike will receive some special perks. The more slots in which you run games or volunteer your time the more perks you will get. See the attached recognition and incentive pdf.

We need the details about your games by March 20. The info we need is in the attached Gamemaster FAQ and Game Submission Requirements. Again this year, all GMs who provide all of the information requested, in a manner that may be easily copied and pasted, and by the deadline of 20 March, will be entered into a special thank you draw. Giving us all the info early makes our lives easier.

If you want to GM but are not sure what you want to run, let me know. We sometimes receive Play-to-Win games that need GMs. If you’re interested, contact James at games@prairiecon.com.
