About this project
In 2014, the Prismatic Tsunami gaming community launched our very first tabletop gaming convention in the great city of Wichita. TsunamiCon is the city’s only major gaming con, with lots of room for tabletop games - board games, card games, miniatures, and RPGs - organized tournaments, LARPs!, exclusive RPG events, a dealer hall, cosplay contest, panels, a VIG lounge, plenty of swag and prizes, and fantastic live entertainment, including the return of our MC’s, Beard and Bean, and the musical genius of comedy rock star Mikey Mason!
Our team encompasses decades of experience in running live gaming events and includes a staff of experienced gamers and game masters of every ilk. We offer preregistration for numerous games and plenty of open gaming opportunities. Attendees can get in on some old school RPG action or sit down and try something new. We also have access to a sizable library of hobby games and knowledgeable folk to help you get started. It’s a great event for novice gamers and old veterans alike!
TsunamiCon 2015 will be held October 23rd, 24th and 25th at the Wichita Holiday Inn, surrounded by great restaurants and plenty of shopping opportunities, including the city’s largest shopping mall. Attendees will have access to special room rates at the hotel, as well as some exciting opportunities to participate in organized con-related events (pub crawl, anyone!?).
We have the entire convention center for the weekend, around 10,000 square feet that can be broken up to meet our needs. And we want YOU to help us determine how we're going to use it. The bigger the project gets, the bigger the con. We learned a lot from our first-year event, and we intend to build on our success and make this year’s con experience even better.
Several big gaming companies and area businesses are chipping in with great gaming support, events, and prizes. Gaming events will include a sanctioned Magic: The Gathering tournament, Prismatic Tsunami's convention-spanning Zombie Dice tourney, some organized LARPs, a Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures tournament, D&D Adventure League, Warmachine/Hordes, Warhammer, Infinity and more! Prize and event supporters include:

Risks and challenges
This is our sophomore effort, and we will undoubtedly encounter numerous challenges while setting up and organizing the event, from sudden shifts in contributor availability to last-minute schedule changes to unforeseen complications in getting the materials ready in time. We learned a lot from last year's effort, however, and our staff has considerable experience handling gaming events and larger events of various types. Additionally, a small army of volunteers stand ready to make this convention a success. We will be vigilant, and we will adapt, and we will endeavor to keep our backers and registered attendees informed of any complications that may affect their convention experience. We are building several new relationships with vendors and manufacturers, and we will similarly be vigilant should those relationships prove unsuccessful and require us to change our plans mid-stream. This could be anything from a manufacturing delay to a problem at the printers. We are endeavoring to establish back-up plans to ensure a surer path to success. With your support, we WILL make TsunamiCon 2015 a reality.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
