Run a Game

Run a Game at SnowCon

Weekend and Saturday badges have sold out. Sunday badges are still available.

Game Masters are the lifeblood of SnowCon, and we welcome lovers of ALL tabletop games! Board games! Card games! Picture games! Word games! Social games! Minis and role-playing and more…there’s always something to play at SnowCon!

For those who live to run, game submissions are open. Badge holders can submit games to the schedule for either 2- or 4-hour slots. !

If you are interested in running a game at SnowCon – as an expert or novice – we welcome your enthusiasm!

Submissions are open

There is a Submit Events button directly below the Buy Badges button on the first page of Tabletop.

  • You must have purchased a badge or had one assigned to you, to submit a game.
  • Games are submitted in TTE.
  • Tabletop refers to you, the person running the game, as a host.
  • Age options are there to help guide potential players regarding content and complexity. They are Family (all ages welcome), 13+ (teens and up; no young children), and 18+ (adults only).
  • Although the system allows games to start every hour, we are still running slots.
    • Please use the following start times
      9am (4 & 2 hour games)
      11am (2 hour)
      2pm (4 & 2 hour)
      4pm (2 hour)
      7pm (4 & 2 hour)
      9pm (2 hour)

Meal times will be scheduled between 1pm-2pm and 6pm-7pm as in years past. It is acceptable for games to run a little late into these breaks and to set up your game during a break.

  • Submitted games will go to admin for approval. If approved, they will be assigned a timeslot and table and appear on the schedule.

Submission Advice:

  • Sell your game in the description. Tell players a little about the game and make them want to play. But be concise; you have 2500 characters to work with.
  • There is a box where you can submit a URL for “more information”, i.e. a boardgame geek link about the game, manufacturer’s page, etc.
  • There is another box where you can assign yourself as the host (please do so).
  • Finally, consider whether you’re playing when setting the number of tickets for your game. For example, if you are teaching a 4-player game and not playing, set your game for 4 tickets. However, if you are indeed playing the game, set tickets at 3.
