U-Con 2019

Join ConTessa in November for Gaming at U-Con in Ann Arbor!

Want to GM? ConTessa GMs get access to our Safer Space throughout the convention (even when they’re not running games), one of our legendary GM Thank You gift bags, and access to our usual assortment of GMing supplies, snacks, swag, and other goodies. We’ll also have our board game library, and 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!

Traveling? Check out the U-Con Website for more information on the venue! Rooms through the convention are as cheap as $107 a night!

Questions? Contact us at, and we’d be happy to help you out!
