AcadeCon Gaming Convention Up On Kickstarter

There's a ton of things that go into running a gaming convention. Trust me, I know. One of the things it takes is money. If you want to book a convention space, have special guests, get special room rates, and have all the tables, chairs, and other million "little things" you need to make a show run, you're gonna need some funding. That's what AcadeCon is looking to raise over on Kickstarter. They're trying to get funds for their 5th year, which will be held in Dayton, Ohio in November.

From the campaign:

AcadeCon is a 3-day gaming convention at the Dayton Convention Center, in Dayton, Ohio, on the weekend of Veterans day: November 10th – 12th, 2017.

We at The RPG Academy podcast have had the extreme fortune of building a wonderful community of gamers that listen to our podcast and play games with us. More than anything, we thrive on interacting with our listeners and fans. This is the true purpose of AcadeCon. In addition to playing games with friends, both old and new, AcadeCon offers almost unprecedented access to some amazing RPG designers, authors, and some of your favorite podcasting personalities. At AcadeCon, these people are there to have fun and play games, just like you. Join into one of their events and don’t be surprised if they join into one of yours!

If you’re still not convinced that AcadeCon is the place for you, please consider our motto: If you're having fun, you're doing it right!

If that sounds like something you’d like to support, please buy a badge and come game with us if you can. If not, a donation goes a long way.

Thank you for checking out our Kickstarter and we hope to see you in November!

The campaign is doing well. They're about 7/10 of the way to their goal with still 25 days left to go.
