 MaricopaCon 2015  (August 15/16)

Two days of awesome gaming with awesome people! 8/15 and 8/16!

Here we are for another shot at another great year of gaming, and ending the 2015 summer with another MaricopaCon.  This con rocks, and I want YOU there.  This is as grass roots as you can get for a gaming con.  We are for gamers by gamers.  We attract a slew of game designers (many with successful kickstarted game projects) gathered together at this con.  Connections are made and stories are shared.  But we need your help once again.

The support in the past has been amazing, and this year we want to add more art to the programming.  We want to add a live band for Saturday night.  We want to go 3-0.

 If you supported previous MaricopaCon kickstarters, be proud.  You own this con, and it has gained momentum because of you.  Last year we had around 250 attendees and over 130 scheduled events before the con even started.  Twenty continuous hours of gaming.  We are a rare convention in that we are fully paid off BEFORE the doors even open.  We do this so the staff can focus on making sure the attendees have a great time, and not worry about counting dollars at the door.  Quality over quantity.

Board games, card games, RPGs, miniatures games, paint and take, cosplay, video games, we got it all.  A small con vibe but with big con awesomeness.  Gamers come home to MaricopaCon once again, and let me for a third time give you the Phoenix gaming con you deserve.

We are excited to be partnering with Steam Crow, Gilead, and Hilleboe Guitars. And the local band TRT is on deck to join us for some awesome live music.  I am proud to have Chessex delivering the custom con dice again this year.

Risks and challenges

CHALLENGE 1: Fund! Hit stretch goals. Exceed your expectations. :)
CHALLENGE 2: Securing the band we have in mind to play Saturday night. And not some garage band but a local known band.
CHALLENGE 3: Getting the most bang for your buck when securing the venue. The most space and the best location.

RISKS: None with the kickstarter if we fund :) (third time is a charm and your help is invaluable)
