Welcome to our second year in Moon City! A fantastic weekend of games and new friends (maybe some old ones too)! We are a family friendly gaming convention that brings the best of modern board gaming to Springfield, MO. We give you access to a 300+ title library of modern classics as well as some new hotness. We provide teachers for those new to this whole concept or just a particular game. We also provide other players - because the best part about gaming (besides of course crushing the opposition) are the friends you meet! We have found a great space at the Oasis and are very happy to return there for our second year.
Looking back at our first year, we are proud to report that we gave away over $1500 worth of prizes in games and merchandise; we had vendors with new games, local publishers, designers, podcasts, craft gaming gear and local game stores. While we were able to enjoy two full days of gaming in 2018, we are adding another full day in 2019 - so you'll be able to hangout and play Friday, Saturday and Sunday this year!

Risks and challenges
As we have already remitted the deposit for this weekend, there is actually negligible risk in this event not moving forward, ie MoonCity Con will be happening this year in September. So why Kickstarter? Because we LOVE games. We LOVE gaming conventions. And we want to bring what we love best about games and gaming conventions to Springfield Missouri. By garnering our ticket sales through kickstarter, we are able to establish our budget in order to not only do what we did last year, but add to that. Give away more games and more prizes, add an extra day of the convention, and who knows what else?Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
