Special Events/Activites: Some Kickstarter levels include access to our VIP rooms which will allow you access to great food (like Roosters Wings and Jersey Mikes) and drinks for the weekend. You can also get access to our gala evening full of fun Adult Social Gaming Parties, sponsored by West Sixth Brewing and The Barrel House. Be sure to check out our special gaming party with a Founder, which includes giving away and teaching several games to each participant and this year a LexiCon Polo Shirt. Incidentally, the Founder's Party sold out in less than a day last year and everyone had a blast! Just an FYI.
Fifth Anniversary Surprise!
One of many surprises for our the LexiCon Fifth Anniveray is to have not one, not two, but three artists! In addition, we will have two dice types this year in celebration of LexiCon 2018. Here are the images for this years dice!
LexiCon will be held annually and will be the most entertaining tabletop boardgaming weekend event that can be imaged by its creators. These events will focus on tabletop boardgaming and RPG activities in a Fun atmosphere that will include Cosplay, LARPing, a huge Gaming Library, and adult Game Parties. LexiCon will have lots of family gaming events during the day and specific gaming events focusing on adults in the evening. Finally, LexiCon will focus on diversity of people and games and expanding the joys of boardgaming to the community.
LexiCon will be held for the fourth year at the Clarion Hotel Conference Center at 1950 Newtown Pike, Lexington, KY 40511. The Clarion Hotel has had major update for all of their hotel rooms and conference center! Our rooms are significantly discounted over their regular rates and you can get this discount by stating you want the "LexiCon" rate.
Our Thanks to Everyone That Has Supported the LexiCon Kickstarter in 2015, 2016, and 2017
LexiCon 2017, as our previous conventions, was a big success. Thank You to everyone that has supported us, volunteered and participated. We appreciate you making this the best board gaming event available in the region. Thank You!
Wow, we are putting up stretch goals on our first day! Inconceivable. Well lets start with an old favortie.
$6.000: Lets make Emery, our MC, wear the funniest (non crude please) costume we can. We usually find the best costumes on Amazon, if you want to look for one. :) Pix below, last years costume for Emery. Nice hat Emery!
$7,000 Let's get trophies for anyone that wins a LexiCon Tournament (excludes Envoy Tournaments, they have their own). And not only that, we will make the Cosplay Trophies nicer (read bigger) too!
$8,000 If we get to this level, we will get LexiCon can cozies for anyone that backs us at a badge level.
$8,500 - Greg, Chris, Rob, Travis and Larry will do a public sing along of bawdy songs while wearing appropriate costumes
$9,000 - Private Screening of a Classic Sci Fi Fantasy film on Thursday night with the gang.
Risks and challenges
We have now had three successful conventions. Short of a major catastrophe, we expect a very successful Lexicon 2018. The real question is how big will it be?
Among the things we have learned is to get the contracts in place as soon as possible to make sure individual events and convention enhancements happen successfully. Of course we have no control over the hotel 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, we will do our best to find someone to take their place. Some 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, but can not guarantee entry into any events.
