    Game Library Donation for the future!

    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.

    Any donated funds for games will be used, but please note the AcadeCon game library will not be used until next year's event.
