About


Big Bad Con 2019

From its original goal of simply giving the best possible gaming experience to our local gaming community, Big Bad Con has taken its community-building vision closer to heart every year. And every edition has attracted new people who have helped us move in that direction, like a big katamari of awesome. Big Bad Con has become a transformative event that connects people together and builds communities while ensuring that we hold space for folks from marginalized groups and amplify their voices.

This year, we realized that this goal required a more direct effort. We partnered with DC, who launched the Babble On Equity Project as a separate fundraising effort to bring more people of color to Big Bad Con. BEOP was amazingly successful! In just two days, it had surpassed its funding goal, and will be able to bring over 30 people to Big Bad Con. Now we’re more excited than ever to make Big Bad Con 2019 the best it’s ever been. 

Every one of you who buys a badge, makes a pledge, or donates to the scholarship fund is an intrinsic part of making this happen. You form the foundation for not just the awesomeness of the weekend convention but the larger mission of Big Bad Con to make the tabletop and larp community a more inclusive and welcoming space for all.

 Big Bad Con is happening this October 10-13 in Walnut Creek, CA. It's accessible from either SFO or OAK airports, and it's hosted by the Walnut Creek Marriott, where we have over 20,000 square feet of gaming space!

Our initial fundraising goal is $7,500. This, combined with post-Kickstarter badge sales, will offset hotel costs. Every dollar past that helps us bring more amazing events, cool swag, and fantastic people to the con! 

What can you expect at Big Bad Con?

Here's some of the staples of Big Bad Con:

  •  Phenomenal tabletop game offerings. We’ll have over 400 events; you can see early submissions on our events page
  •  Amazing players and GMs. They are what makes the convention special!
  • 40 private game rooms for RPGs and LARPs. 
  •  Online registration for games. Have your entire schedule ready when you arrive!
  •  Games on Demand. Didn't sign up for games in advance? No worries, swing by GoD and pick from our amazing menu of games!
  •  Big Bad World. Our con-long larp of being awesome to each other. 
  •  Community Coordinator and Safety Advocates. Folks that are there for you if something comes up.
  •  Thursday evening social events. Soda pop social, fencing lessons, stitching circles, dance parties, and more!

What’s new this year?

Every year we look back and see what could be done better, here's what new in 2019!

  •  POC Dinner, an opportunity to meet and mingle with other amazing people of color.
  •  All Ages Dry Lounge, a chill spot for teens and adults to hang out.
  •  Expanded Games on Demand, more room, more tables, and more games!
  •  A new board game library, donated by our friends at EndGame!
  •  Outreach, we're teaming up with The Game Academy to run some great games for kids before the con!
  •  Big Bad Game Jam on itch.io, we're collecting fable and folklore inspired games with proceeds from the anthology going to our scholarship program.
  •  Babble On Equity Project, a fund to bring more people of color to Big Bad Con.  
  •  Accessibility loaner gamer gear, jumbo dice, braille dice, card holders, dice trays, easy to hold pens and pencils, and more.

 If...when we exceed our initial funding goal, the real fun begins. We'll host special events, commission amazing art, and bring out some wonderful guests!

In addition to our art from Eden Parkinson, we'll commission Jabari Weathers to give us a whole new take on Little Red and The Wolf. Thanks to the wonderful folks at Heart of the Deernicorn, we'll be using that art on new some gorgeous new t-shirts and hoodies. And thanks to the Babble on Equity Project, Jabari will be attending Big Bad Con as well!

Risks and challenges

This is the ninth year we have hosted Big Bad Con and every year I walk away from it exhausted from the work and elated from the success.

Obstacles we've encountered in the past include the room blocks filling up, unexpected charges from the hotel rooms, t-shirts trapped in FedEx facilities, fires blocking access to the con, lack of food options, hotel rooms becoming unsuitable for use, and last-minute GM cancellations.

While each of these has been a challenge, we've always pulled through. We’ve incorporated as a nonprofit 501c3, expanded our room blocks, navigated through tough hotel negotiations, and called on an array of excellent GMs to run games in a pinch!

I'm confident we can tackle any obstacles that come our way in 2019. We want to deliver the best roleplaying convention experience with you and for you!
