Be prepared to try to get into the events you most want as soon as registration for tickets begins. Certain games will be highly sought and are very competitive and difficult to lock-down.

We are using TableTop.Events (TTE) to host badge and event registration. They have an easy to use system that is sure to provide an improved registration process for everyone.

Event  Submission

Shortly after event submission closes, our staff will create the online event catalog and announce Event Registration for attendees where you can reserve your seat at the various events and tables. We typically close event submission near the end of the calendar year.

Registering at Gary Con (IN-PERSON ATTENDEES ONLY)

Open Gaming:

Gary Con has 24-hour gaming access at the convention center from Thursday 7 am to Sunday 4 pm. In addition to the scheduled events, many tables will be reserved for Open Gaming where you are free to find an open table or seat to run or play your own unplanned event.


Event Types:

Gary Con was started to celebrate the life of Gary Gygax, so many of the events are Old School games—in a few cases your DM may be the original author or designer! However, any type of game is welcome: board games, card games, miniature war games, pen & paper RPGs, etc. At any given table you’ll find any and all versions of Dungeons & Dragons and its progeny, cyberpunk heists, ships-of-the-line bombarding each other, car and chariot racing, Allies storming the Normandy beaches, jousting knights, or space marines desperately fighting off xenomorphs.
