Queen City Conquest has delivered excellent gaming for five years now at their conventions, because we love doing it. Those 3 days of gaming with all of you make us very happy and we hope it makes you happy too. Now let's get real.

We want to bring you this convention, but we can't do it without you and Kickstarter. That's just the truth. Help us entertain you by joining our Queen City Court. We promise that it will be royally fun. Now that you've taken pun damage let us proclaim the basics.

If you're wondering about extra goodies in the $75 level you get a discounted T-Shirt, your QCC die, a QCC 2017 pint glass, first crack at registering for events, and things unlocked through our stretch goals such as Meeples, tote storage at the convention, another die, and whatever other surprises we come up with.

We have a number of amazing events already lined up this year for the con which include a D&D Epic, the Double Exposure Board Game Tournament -- the games for the tournament won't be announced until July, we're building a panel series with our guests, on Sunday we'll be having our Klask tournament hosted by Buffalo Games, and Sunday is also Family Day. On Family Day we'll have Joe from Collectors Inn teaching and then having a magic draft for kids, a series of family friendly board and role playing games will be run, and there will be mini painting for the kids.

Those are just the things we have planned now and we'll be actively searching for other events and games to have run at the convention.

Joe from Collectors Inn has done us some great service this year already letting us have our kick off party at his game store and becoming a sponsor of the show. This has allowed us to reduce the funding number of the Kickstarter by quite a bit. 

Joe has also given you folks this deal. If the Kickstarter hits $9,000 in 72 hours he will give a discount to everyone who funds the con that can be used at any time at the store or at the con.

If you're still reading thank you. If you back the convention thank you more. We're still a bit away from September but we're moving along and will be adding more events and guests along the way. We plan on updating you folks here and the general public over on the website as we proceed. Thank you for backing and we'll see you in September for some amazing gaming.

Risks and challenges

We know the risks which is why we set the monetary goals we have set. If hit our goals we'll be able to pay for the things we need to pay for to have the convention. Aside from someone losing their head in a coup d'etat or something else unforeseen happening, like the end of the world, we're sure we can make the convention happen and our track record proves it.
