What is Fear the Con?
Fear the Con is a unique gaming convention formed around the Role-playing game podcast Fear the Boot. It is a small convention with a strong and dedicated community. For over a decade gamers have traveled from as far away as Australia for two days of gaming. This is not a convention for panels, guests, or events. It is a convention focused entirely on the gaming and being around people who share in your hobby.
Since Fear the Con 8 in 2015 we have crowd funded the convention instead of charging individual tickets. It is through your support that Fear the Con happens and as long as it is funded the convention is open to everyone.
When is Fear the Con 2020?
Fear the Con 2020 is going to be held from June 19-20 at the Dury Inn & Suites in Brentwood Missouri. World Wide Wing Night will be held on June 18th to kick off the festivities.
What is a World Wide Wing Night?
World Wide Wing Night is a social mixer held the night before Fear the Con. It is a chance to get to know the people you will be gaming with over the next few days. Headlining World Wide Wing Night is a performance by Comedy Rockstar Mikey Mason. The name Wing Night comes from the tradition of having chicken wings at the event, but that is not a guaranteed aspect.
All stretch goals must add to the experience of the convention itself with a focus on remaining a strong community convention that is inclusive and worth the money attendees spend to share their vacation with fellow gamers.
- 5K - Lock in the venue and dates for Fear the Con 2021 now and be able to announce them at Fear the Con 2020
- 5.5K - Fear the Fruit. Fear the Fruit is a tradition of Fear the Con that I would like to see return. A large quantity of fruit will be purchased and made available to attendees for no charge during the convention. All leftover fruit at the end of Saturday will be donated to a local women's shelter.

Risks and challenges
Fear the Boot has hosted Fear the Con annually for over a decade and has a proven track record. This Kickstarter will fund the convention and it will not occur if not successful. If any GM running a game cannot do so for any reason we will work with the backers of that level and find an alternative GM and game to fill that spot.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
