Gamehole Con's Goal: Become the premier hardcore tabletop gaming convention in the Upper Midwest. Serious gamers will love this Con!

Check below for reward upgrades!

Gamehole Con is going to be a great experience. We are committed to making it a success. But we are thinking big - we want this to be the premier hardcore tabletop gaming convention in the Upper Midwest. The one people talk about.

The funds raised will help us reach for the sky with all-star guests, the best GMs and a fantastic venue. It will allow us to expand our marketing efforts to bring serious games in from around the country, nay, the WORLD!

Gamehole Con is all about tabletop gaming and nothing else. The convention features role-playing games, board games, fantasy and historical miniature gaming, and collectible card games. Gamehole Con is for the fantasy and adventure tabletop gaming enthusiast. Serious gamers – you will love this con!

Gamehole Con I is taking place November 1-3, 2013. The event will be held at the Sheraton Inn on John Nolan Dr. in Madison, WI, perennially listed as one of the best cities in America to live in. Easy access to highways and the airport and a great hotel convention center will make this easy on all gamers.

Gamehole Con is the brainchild of the Gamehole, a plucky group of gamers whose experience dates back to the first years of TSR and Dungeons and Dragons. What is the Gamehole you ask? Why it’s a hole for gaming, nothing more, nothing less.

Here are some great new reward upgrades:

We are a few days in and have hit 13%. It's a good start but let's continue to make great progress towards our goal! To help with that we have some nice reward upgrades to offer you (Tell your friends!):
