What Conventions Should We Go To?

We’re looking at getting a tentative convention schedule for the next year assembled, but a lot of cons have poorly maintained (or non-existant) websites. Many others we find their website by accident instead of a simple Google search. So we’re coming to you. What local gaming cons do you goto that we should be at. Realistically, we can only go anywhere inside the area of Columbus OH, Rochester, NY, Boston, MA, and Norfolk, VA. We’re really only looking at smaller gaming cons (as small as 50 to as large as 5,000-10,000 attendees). Anything larger (or any size non-gaming focused convention) and a small company like ours tends to get lost in the sea of vendors. We’re currently looking for either Pathfinder-focused cons or a general gaming con where Pathfinder is one of the games played. I’m more than happy to run some games.

So we’re asking you. What is your favorite gaming con? Tell us! We love small cons of 50-100 attendees. They’re really small and personal and we get to know all the gamers there. Tell us about your local con today.

  1. NeonCon is where you should be going!

  2. I’d like to see you guys at Icon SF on Long Island. I think their site is IconSF.org check them out, the show is in late April and is a 3 day con.

  3. NeonCon, IIRC, is in Las Vegas. That’s a little out of the area I’m looking. I’d love to go, but its a little to far. I’ll check into I-Con though. Thanks, Scott.

  4. Origins, in Columbus, Ohio. (http://www.originsgamefair.com/)

    Pathfinder Society had a great turn out there and I believe they will be looking to increase the number of scheduled tables for next year.

    Here is a bit about this year:

  5. Nuke-con in Council Bluffs Iowa

  6. There’s a local con here in PA. It’s about 45 min further east than Travellercon near Harrisburg. It is hosted by That Game Place.

    Time:
    Saturday November 12 at 10:00am – 9:00pm
    Sunday November 13 at 10:00am – 9:00pm

    Location:

    Lemoyne Community Building
    510 Herman Avenue

    It averages about 60 to 70 people. Both Pathfinder and Traveller are played as well as other games. You can see more on their webpage as well as ontact them if you are interested.
