Join ConTessa this fall in Dayton for gaming and fun at AcadeCon in Dayton, Ohio!

Want to GM? You can purchase a discounted GM badge ($25 for two events) at the AcadeCon Kickstarter, going on through April 17, 2019.

To run a game at the convention with ConTessa, first add your game to our internal list through Tabletop.Events, then we’ll have you submit it to AcadeCon when their registration opens so we have record of the event in both places. Submit your events ASAP so we can plan appropriately!

We will have most (if not all) of our staff present running games, our board game library, and our usual assortment of snacks, supplies, swag, and other goodies. If we get enough GMs, we’ll host a board gaming social or dinner for our GMs, staff, and their friends and family.

Who should GM with us? ConTessa events are run by marginalized people which includes (but is not necessarily limited to) LGBTQ+ and non-binary/gender nonconforming people, women, the disabled (visible and invisible), and people of color.

What should you run? Whatever you like! We accept tabletop roleplaying games, board, card, miniature, and LARPs, and if there’s something you want to do not on that list, let us know and we’d be happy to make it happen!

Why GM with ConTessa? You’ll have access to our Safer Space both during and outside your own events, get a ‘Thank You’ bag with gifts from ConTessa and partnering organizations, an event t-shirt, unfettered access to our board game library, snacks, GM supplies, and any other assistance you may need made available by our friendly staff.

Traveling? Get discount hotel rooms at the Crowne Plaza Hotel nearby by mentioning ‘AcadeCon’. Call 800-689-5586 to make reservations!
