If there is a games convention you think we are missing, please fill out our game convention submission form (please note, you may submit both your own gaming con if you are staff or just a games con you are a fan of).

If you'd like to link to us, by all means please do so! You can also share us with your Facebook friends and twitter followers. Feel free to use the banner ad (468x60) below:

If you've never been to a gaming convention before then you may want to read our Glossary of Game Con Terms.

We also have a short blog which includes reviews of the games conventions we've attended. We are always looking for guest bloggers to help us fill out the blog (after all, running this site doesn't pay the bills so we can't attend every games con we'd like!) There's a link on the blog to volunteer to write a review (and yes, you can even review a gaming con you've run if you like!)

Finally, to round things out we have a list of links to player search sites so that you can find a game/gamers in between attending your favorite gaming cons.

So whether your looking for a major video game expo on the west coast, a retro game con on the east coast, or a local boardgame convention in the pacific northwest our events calendar is where you'll find them all. We even show a number of Geek/Nerd conventions, Sci Fi Conferences, Cosplay, Fantasy, Comic and Anime Cons (but only when they have a gaming presence as well). So let us help you find your next game con!
