  • Black Shield Productions will once again be running its popular continuous "drop-in" game throughout MisCon 28.
    The continuous "drop-in" game is a series of short 'scenes' allowing Players who only have an hour or so to spare to drop in and enjoy an RPG while they wait for another game or event. Other Game Masters looking for players are encouraged to check Room 159 to see if the drop-in players are ready for an official game. One of the goals of the continuous "drop-in" game is to allow the flexibility for players to play in as many games as possible.

Game Pre-Scheduling and Pre-Registration are Closed

MisCon 28 will no longer add games to the On Line Schedule, nor may Members pre-register for games.

Open Gaming will still be available for GMs who want to run games at MisCon 28, and Members may register for games at Gaming HQ, room 161.

We'll see you at MisCon 28, May 23-26, 2014!

GMs Needed

With Paizo sending a team to MisCon 28, we would like to welcome them with a large showing of Pathfinder events. Paizo has also provided Pathfinder scenarios for GMs who want to run them at MisCon 28.

Paizo will be running Pathfinder Society events at MisCon 28. If you are already a member of the Pathfinder Society please contact Gaming or the PFS for more information or to help out.

Children's, teen or family games. MisCon would really like some GMs willing to run children's, teen, or family games, whether their own or some of those from the MisCon Game Library.

MisCon is looking for GMs to run specific games from the MisCon Game Library like a head-to-head simultaneous running of Formula D and PitchCar.

Please contact gaming@miscon.org if you are interested in helping run games at MisCon 28.

MisCon 28 Gamemaster and Volunteer Record Keeping

MisCon would like to start keeping better records. This includes keep track of volunteered hours. If you are planning on running games at MisCon 28 please fill out the Volunteer form on the Volunteers page. If you check only Gaming, it is assumed your hours are scheduled. Although, we hope you take an interest in other departments as well.

MisCon Game Library

MisCon's Game Library is large and varied, containing everything from children's games to the most complex strategy games.

The purpose of the MisCon Game Library is to provide games which can be run for Members at MisCons, or MisCon Game Days. Naturally it's easier to run games from the Library if you know which games we have. You can browse our list of games at the web site boardgamegeek.

If you are interested in running any of the games in the MisCon Game Library at MisCon 28, and are pre-registered for MisCon 28, please email us at gaming@miscon.org and arrange to sign out a game to learn.

Even a game we know how to run, will run more smoothly and enjoyably if we have read the rules, and played the game recently to familiarize ourselves with the intricacies of those rules.

The MisCon Game Library has been a valuable asset, not only bringing entertainment to Members at MisCon and its Game Days, but throughout the year.


Be sure to check out the Full Schedule of Events. There are a lot of gaming panels and special events scheduled for MisCon 28.

Gaming HQ will be in room 161. You can register for games there, or schedule games you want to run. The Gaming Team will be available to help and answer questions.

Primary gaming rooms in the hotel will all be located around the pool on the first floor.

Room 160 will be used for Open gaming throughout the Con.

Rooms 136 to 139 will be used for Mixed gaming.

Rooms 141 to 144 will be used for Quiet gaming. These rooms will only be used for Scheduled games and, unless the Game Master specifies otherwise, for only one game at a time. If you have a game which needs more privacy, preschedule your game early to reserve one of these rooms.
