Mission Statement:
To support the roleplaying and boardgaming community and industry by hosting an annual convention that brings gamers together in the spirit of competition and fellowship.

The first annual convention has a date and a venue.
We are pleased to announce that we have booked the Scottish Rite Convention Center in Columbia, SC to host the very first SCARAB event on the weekend of January 14th through the 16th of 2011. This first event will be a three day event, but we hope in the future to make this a four day event.

SCARAB now has 5 tournaments for your enjoyment! Battletech, Warhammer 40K, Shadowrun, Iron Kingdoms, and Board Games. A little something for everyone! Plus, we have some AWESOME prizes for the winners! Check the website for more details.

Plus, we know that everyone has a group that you 'game' with so don't forget about our discount for your group.

$5 Per Person - Group Discount.
Do you have three or more friends? If you do and you are all interested in coming to this event, you qualify for our group discount. You will need to download the 'Group Discount Form' (it is a .pdf form) and fill it out and send in 'snail mail' or as an e-mail to: registration @ (remove the space before and after the @ symbol) requesting the group discount. All payments must be recieved before December 14, 2010, otherwise each person will be required to pay the additional $5. If one or more of your members hasn't paid, you will recieve periodic notifications, warning of the missing payment/s. If you have 5 people sign up and all pay but one then you are not going to be penalized the $5, only those who have less than 4 total people make payments will have to make up the $5 difference.

Because the response from players and companies has been so great we are incredibly humbled and grateful. We are extending the registration special and the sponsorship/advertising deadlines by one more week. We hope everyone has a happy and safe Thanksgiving! This special will end at Midnight on Black Friday.­

Don't forget about the group discounts!

Happy Gaming!biggrin

Chat with SCARAB

Saturday, January 8 from 1-3pm EST.

Want to ask SCARAB a question about the Con? Become our friends on Facebook (Keyword: SCARAB Gaming Convention) and send us a private message. We will post questions and answers as our status during this time. We will also monitor the SCARAB forums during that time as well. Why are we doing this? Communication! We want you to know as much about this event as you can. Also, because we will be sitting around stuffing money (in the form of cool merchandisebiggrin) into concierge bags for two days and it will give us a break from the monotony.
