Attendee information

Please note that this year we have moved to a new registration system that uses badges to enter the convention and you use a ticket to participate in each game/event. A badge is the equivalent of your weekend registration fee and your ticket is the same as registering for a particular game.

Tickets will be free, but like you will need to pay for your badge to enter the event.

How much is a badge?

A full-weekend badge is $35 USD if you use to register and pay online.
You can pay in person at the event using cash for $50 CAN.

We strongly recommend you pre-register and use the online system to give you a better chance at getting into the games you want.

We have additional pricing for day passes and youth, please visit our fees and timelines page for more information.

When can I pay and start viewing games?

You can pay for your badge to view the current game list starting on May 7 at 7 pm.

Games will be continually added to the list after that date, so check back often!

When can I choose which games I want to play?

You can start getting tickets to the games on May 14 at 7 pm

This is an important time! Set your calendar, set an alarm and be ready, some games fill up very fast!

Can I run a game at PrairieCon?

Yes! We need more games! Anyone can submit a game to run, and there are incentives for you to do so!

Will the game auction happen this year?

You bet it is! This year the auction will be at 6 pm on Saturday, and we’ll run it until all games are gone, or we may shut it down early if we lose too many attendees back to games or other things.

If you want to submit items for the auction, please visit our auction page.
