What we’re about
If you find yourself consumed by PC, RPG, board, or console gaming. If you find yourself debating, Star Trek or Star Wars. If you are reading this and can find several grammar errors, then this group is for you.
We are all totally geek-ed about something and most of us geeks and gamers find ourselves never leaving the house, leaving us a little unsociable.
This group is for the purpose of getting out of the house and meeting other people to socialize, game, and talk with about all those things that leave other people with a glazed look.

- Midwest GameFest Online 2023Link visible for attendees
ONLINE DECEMEBER 7-10, 2023
What is Midwest GameFest Online?
Midwest GameFest Online is an annual four-day tabletop hobby game convention held online each Fall. It is the companion convention to our in-person event, Midwest GameFest, held each Spring in the Kansas City area. We've got a great round up of activities from online role-playing games, miniatures, board games, card games, organized play, cosplay, artwork, workshops, game designers, benefit events, and more! Midwest GameFest Online is organized and funded by The Role-Players Guild of Kansas City, LTD.
When is it?
Doors open to attendees on Thursday, December 7, 2023, at 12 p.m. and the event runs through Sunday, December 10, 2023, at 7 p.m. See our Schedule page for details.
Where is it?
While our Spring in-person event is hosted in Kansas City, our Fall online event is hosted via Discord, a free text, audio, and video service. Discord is a web-based service that also has great desktop and mobile apps. You don't need anything more than the cell phone, tablet, or web browser you're using right now. There's nothing to download or hook up, but a mic and headset would be great. We use a number of online virtual tabletops (VTTs) including Roll20, Tabletop Simulator, and more (game hosts decide).

Does Midwest GameFest Online benefit a charity?
Midwest GameFest is not a charity itself, and neither is its parent organization the Role-players Guild of Kansas City. However, we have historically provided a charity raffle benefitting Harvesters Community Food Network, a large community food bank in the Kansas City region. You can learn more about this at our Benefit Raffle page.
We are also hosting a virtual Red Cross Blood Drive.
We host a number of tabletop gaming and fantasy-related sponsors. Check the Sponsors page for details on this year's sponsors. And check our SWAG Bag page for the freebies they are providing!
Event/game organizers should contact us as soon as possible so details may be worked out. We are looking for events ranging from a single board game or RPG round, to miniatures tournaments or sanctioned trading card events. If you want to run a tournament, live-action or large-scale event, please contact us directly. See our Events page for details.
Volunteers are always needed. See our Volunteers page for volunteer discounts and to sign up as a volunteer.
Who are the convention staff and organizers?
The convention is organized, staffed, and financed by a cadre of experienced volunteer conventioneers from The Role-players Guild of Kansas City with an advisory board made up of participating members/organizers from the Heart of America Historical Miniatures Gaming Society, and other interested folks. The convention is financed by RPGKC coffers, door proceeds, exhibitor fees, and sponsorships. The RPGKC is a 501(c)(7) non-profit group of role-playing game enthusiasts dedicated to bringing quality gaming to members and educating the public about that gaming.
