Gamehole Con 2014!

REMINDER!  Pre-registration ends on October 15!  All badges and games ticket purchased must then be made in person at the Con.  All badge's will go up $5 in cost when buying them in person.  If you have not, pre-register soon!

Gamehole Con is back and better than ever!  Our dates for this year are November 7-9 at the Madison Sheraton.  We had a great Con last year and we are working to make this year’s effort even better. 


Badges go on sale for Gamehole Con 2014 on Tuesday, July 1st and noon CST.

We have added a lot more space. Basically, we are taking all of the space that the hotel has to offer.  This means two floors of tabletop gaming action. 

We have a new and vastly expanded Dealer Hall.  We have an expanded free games library this year being run by the Gen Con Games Library.  We have an expanded Pathfinder Hall which will host a mind boggling 80 tables of PFS this year.  There will also be two specific Pathfinder third party publishers in the Pathfinder Hall this year – Epic Quest and Total Party Kill Games.  They will be running their own events as well.

We also will have a dedicated Dungeons & Dragons 5e hall.  We are one of only 8 cons in North America that will be debuting D&D Expeditions content for Tyranny of Dragons.  Chris Perkins himself will be running some of those games.

We have been compiling an amazing catalogue of games for you all to choose from.  We have an outstanding raft of games that were submitted by the Madison Traditional Gaming group.  We will have a much larger contingent of miniature games including both Hordes and 40K.  There will be a ton of outstanding board games and war games featured this year.

We also have some incredible Magic the Gathering events slated.  These are designed for the more casual player.  They are fun drafts with some great prizes.  And, for both the Friday night and Saturday afternoon drafts, Magic Hall of Famer Bob Maher, Jr., will be playing in each.  This will be an outstanding opportunity to play with one of the world’s greatest Magic players in a relaxed setting.

Finally, we have an outstanding list of Special Guests this year headlined by the creator of the Forgotten Realms and well known author, Ed Greenwood.  Joining Ed will be the aforementioned Chris Perkins, Bob Maher as well as Jolly Blackburn, Frank Mentzer, Ernie Gygax, Doug Niles, The Dungeon Bastard, Stephen Chenault, Lester Smith and Chris Clark among others. 

Please see our site for details concerning our Special Guests and Special Events. 

We hope to see all of you there!

    Really good considering the limited amount of time I had. Got a couple autographs, played a cool game, ran my adventure as best I could (not a perfect session), talked to a couple people, and bought a set of dice.

      FYI, I posted a couple "how did it go?" threads at the GameHole con forum.

    I'll go in hopes of finding an open seat in a Pathfinder game.

      I just did a quick scan - still tickets for PFS to be had (and some "regular"-non Society Pathfinder from the EPIC and TPK teams). Although the count is definitely dwindling in some slots. As Alex had previously mentioned, the best bet is to pre-register and grab those tickets now.

    Go take a peek at the games list on the website. It is long - over 370 events. There are still special event seats to be had from our great special guests plus all of the other great games that are being offered.

    And food trucks - let's not forget those unsung heroes of the game convention!
