It’s okay though because our AV team has the talent, the equipment and the drive to cover almost every panel. 2016 Opening Ceremonies, 2016 Costume ContestCurse Like A Pyrate: 2016 With Paul St Peter, Pirates in Literature: 2016 with Terri PrayPutting the Sizzle in the Scene: 2016 with Terri Pray (18+) are a few of the panels from CoreCon VIII: On Ancient Seas that have been edited and are ready to view.

2017 Gaming

The Showdown is about to start! The Monsters and Mechs will be battling at the Baymont Inn of Fargo June 8-11, 2017. While the battle rages on, you need to stop gawking and get your butt in the Gaming Central Hazard Shelter!

The Gaming Central Hazard Shelter is  your safety from the hazards and pitfalls of the Monsters and Mechs battling just outside. We have ourselves a premium amount of dedicated tabletop space for games! Secure your spot not just for table space but your very survival. Many wayward gamers will take refuge with us, and there might not be room for everyone, but if you sign up to run a game, you will have your safety in the Gaming Central Hazard Shelter reserved.

What you need to do is simple.

At the bottom of this blog post is a signup form to run games at CoreCon IX, Monster vs Mechs. Pick your favorite game and let us know you want to run it for your fellow con-goers seeking shelter in the Gaming Central Hazard Shelter.  Remember, this is not just for role-playing games. You can sign up to run anything: board games, card games, miniatures, role-playing games, and everything in-between.

When you sign up to run a game, you get some great benefits along with the fun that you bring fellow gamers.  First off, everyone that runs at least one game will earn themselves a special Limited Edition CoreCon IX dice.  Second, you guarantee yourself a table for your game.  With attendance growing each year, pickup games can sometimes be hard to secure space for, so reserving a spot by signing up makes sure you will not be short a table when it comes time to trounce your friends.

We do not have forever, though; the deadline to make it in the program guide is March 31st.

Ensure your safety! Sign Up to Run a Game!

2017 FanSuites

 
Hello there, fellow nerds!

 Are YOU or someone you know interested in hosting a Fansuite or “Party Room”? Well, lucky for you, there are a few spots open! Fansuites are hotel rooms reserved in the “party area” of CoreCon, right around the pool. By hosting a fansuite, you will get two CoreCon badges and have the option to decorate it how you want. (This is within reason, of course. Don’t put holes in the wall or trash the room!)

Hosts will be able to get into the room early on Wednesday night to decorate and be ready for the con, but you won’t be able to sleep in the room unless you pay for the extra time.

More information can be found at https://www.fargocorecon.org/fansuites/ or you can message the Leader and Assistant at fansuites@fargocorecon.org.
 
 
Thank you,
Assistant, Katie
