Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring my own game to run?
Yes. If you want to run a game that is not on the schedule, you are welcome to bring it along and find some space.

What happens when my game gets cancelled?
When your game is cancelled, either check the registration site at or check at the PrairieCon front desk to see what games have room in them. Or feel free to wander around and look for any ‘players wanted’ signs.

Why are there age recommendations and restrictions?
Age recommendations are based on the complexity of the game or, in a few cases, mature subject matter, and are usually determined by the manufacturers of the game – most of our regular games are playable by participants aged 12 and up.

Can I volunteer to either be on the board or help the PrairieCon board?
Yes you can! There is a board of nine people who ensure that PrairieCon happens, and board positions do open up.  There are also other volunteer opportunities if a board position is either not available, or not for you.

What do I do when the game that I wanted to play is full? Is there a waiting list or something?
Sadly, we do not maintain waiting lists for games at PrairieCon. If you desperately want to play a game that is full, you have two options. You can find the game master before the event begins and ask if he or she can include another player, or you can hang around the table when the slot begins in case someone does not show up. The odds of either strategy working are not great, so be sure to pre-register early.

Can I get a refund for my badge if I cannot attend?

Yes, as long as it is before May 11, 2024 at 6pm.
