CoreCon is growing!

CoreCon began with roughly 100 supporters. After almost ten years, we have more than 1,000 regular attendees! With this growth in fan base, we outgrew our old hotel and needed a new place to continue to provide everything the congoers love and expect. The Holiday Inn of Fargo will be the new location for CoreCon X as it has almost double the convention space. Continue reading

Explore Space With The Artemis Simulator

Take control of a ship to help kill the monsters roaming in Fargo and save the city at CoreCon: Monsters Vs. Mechs.

New races and ships are available this year! Even if you’ve played Artemis in the past, this can be a new experience with a ship like the Juggernaut.

The crew includes:

  • The navigator who hopefully knows left from right and takes the crew on adventure. Steer towards the danger and become a hero or steer away from it and run like a scared cat. We won’t judge. Promise.
  • The weapons officer gets to blast the bad guys out of the water with laser cannons, missiles and nukes.
  • The science officer is your person in the crows nest. They scan other ships for weaknesses and keep tabs on your allies.
  • The communication officer signals friendly ships to get out of danger and can taunt the bad guys with insults or terms of surrender.
  • The engineer directs energy to the stations needing power the most. They can help tip the scale between victory and defeat in a battle.
  • The fighter is a new crew member. They can man their own small ship to help defend your captain’s ship and kill the enemies.

A team of six is best but Artemis can be played by as little as three. If you have never played, come to the training sessions Friday and/or Saturday from noon to 1 pm. If you can’t make it then, you are welcome to watch other crews to learn. Sign your team up on the convenient sign in sheet.

The ships will be flying:

  • Thursday: 9 pm to 2 am
  • Friday: noon to 2 am
  • Saturday: noon to 2 am

There will be an Artemis tournament beginning on Saturday at 1 pm and continuing until 10 pm. With multiple rooms running Artemis, you will still be able to play impromptu runs while the tournaments are going on.
