Having FUN at CinCityCon!!!
Having FUN at CinCityCon!!!

CinCityCon is the dream of five boardgame loving people who envisioned a gaming convention for people in the Cincinnati/Tri-State Area. Between them they have over 50 years of attending and organizing gaming conventions. They come from years of organizing LexiCon Tabletop Gaming Convention, Kentucky's Best Boardgaming Convention now in its 6th year, CharCon, West Virginia's largest and coolest boardgaming convention, entering its 14th year, and this our 3rd year for CinCityCon!

Stretch Goal

$10,000 we will purchase a new Awesome Blow Up to add to our collection for CinCityCon 2019!

$11,000 (which will exceed last year's Kickstarter total) we will add 10% more games to our Play to Win games!

$12,000 we will Humiliate one or both of the directors on stage before the Cosplay (or soon after) Contest on Sat.  Watch out Greg and Chris...  We will be open to suggestions!

Risks and challenges

Between all of the directors, we have now had many successful conventions. Short of a major catastrophe, we expect a very successful CinCityCon 2019.

Of course, we have no control over the convention center if they make an error and there is a problem with the space; we apologize if a GM or a special guest does not show up for an event or becomes ill, we will do our best to find an appropriate alternative. We have no control over the weather (I know!!!), if it impacts attendance or the electricity at convention center. We are unable to stop major catastrophes like Zombie Uprising, Vampire Plagues, or Sequels to Sharknado!

Events will become full, since we focus so much on having a large variety of events, rather than multiple versions of the same event, if this happens early, we will try to schedule additional sessions, if we are able.

CinCityCon is a bigger vision of what has been a successful formula for 6 years in Lexicon and should be bigger then our 2018 CinCityCon Show. Short of a major catastrophe like weather or issues with the convention center, we expect a very successful CinCityCon 2019.
