    Game Library Donations

    Our AcadeCon Game Library is a popular and well used part of what makes AcadeCon AcadeCon, but mostly the game library is the personal games of the Faculty. And while we have made an effort to buy new games to fill out the library we still have need for more. At this level you are donating an amount of money to cover the purchase of a specific game for our library. It can be one we desperately need or maybe one of your favorites that you want to share. In exchange for this donation we will affix a donation label inside the game's case/cover/lid stating that the game was donated by you and will include a short personal msg as well, if you wish.

    follow this link for a list of the current games in our library.

    Demo Table with 2 badges

    This pledge level is for game designers looking to show off their newest designs and or conduct alpha/beta play-testing. For your pledge you'll be assigned a table that is yours for the entire weekend. You can schedule events or do walk up and play times or a mixture of both.

    You may sell or pre-sell any of the items you are demoing from your table, but if you wish to sell any additional merchandise you'll need to get a vendor table.

    The standard Demo table is a 5' round table but you may request an oversized table (which is two 8'x2.5' tables together to make a rectangular table).

    You also receive two Demo badges for yourself and a helper if you need one.

    ROOM SPONSOR

    AcadeCon is growing. This will be our 7th Acadecon, each having grown significantly over the last and we are expecting the same for this year.

    As we grow, so does our need for more space for more gaming, panels, special events, etc. But those extra side rooms add up quick. Each of the side rooms we've rented in the past cost approx. $200 per day of use.

    At this level you are covering the cost of one of those rooms per day (200 for each day). If you cover a room we will make a sign with your name/info as a way to identify the room. If you cover a room for two or more days (so $400+) we'll print up a banner for the room with your name/logo.
