MaricopaCon 2019 and Macro-Con 2019

Re-uniting two Great Gaming Conventions in Arizona again this year, we are here to see MaricopaCon and Macro-Con succeed.  It will be MaricopaCon's 7th year, and Macro-Con's 3rd year (if this kickstarter funds).  Board games, card games, miniatures games, RPGs, cosplay, and more are on the menu again.  Enjoy the board game library last year?  This year it will be even bigger!  Liked the Cosplay?  That's coming back too.  We are also partnering with Thing 12 Games for a VIP support level!  August is MaricopaCon Month!

MaricopaCon will be in August (8/24-8/25) as always, and Macro-Con in April (4/27/19).

GM Guest of Honor:  Blaze

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It has been a long journey for the MaricopaCon gamer family (that includes you).  This isn't just a convention, it is an annual gathering of friends and family.  The best GMs, Game Designers, vendors, and attendees will be there.  Roll some dice and make new friends. Network and playtest your new game idea.  Welcome home once again.

The venues for both conventions are slated to be at the same places they were last year.  If the kickstarter grows to a new high bigger venues are being looked at.  :)

Convention Badge Info

How the badges will work is you will get your MaricopaCon badge and dice the Saturday morning of MaricopaCon.  You will get your Macro-Con badge the morning of Macro-Con.  The backer list of names for this will be provided to the owner of Macro-Con (Justin).          

Both conventions are great for people new to board games, card games, and RPGs.           Our GMs (at both cons) are eager to teach what they run, they are each hand-picked for their knowledge and customer service skills.

The Chessex partnership remains strong and they will be creating the dice again this year.

Risks and challenges

1) The Challenge every year of course is to hit the base goal to pay for everything. Convention kickstarters are harder than straight product kickstarters in my opinion (I'm selling you an experience you haven't had yet).
2) Repeat the awesomeness of the last six years.
