The theme this year is superheroes, so get ready for a truly epic event! Come in your best superhero cosplay, run a themed game, paint a heroic figurine, or bring your most villainous character idea. Of course, we’ll also have our outstanding lineup of tournaments, special programming, boardgames, RPGs, and miniatures games, as well as our Kids’ Track programming for gamers 6 and up. So, bring the whole family and enjoy a weekend of gaming, camaraderie, and spectacle!


See the schedule: Game registration will be open from August 15th to September 25th. After that time, the schedule will still be visible, but you will need to sign up for any events you wish to attend on the game sheets at RinCon. See you there!

See the program: The full con booklet is available here.

Volunteer at RinCon: We need logistical help prior to the convention, contact us to talk about how to get involved and get a free or reduced-cost membership. Volunteer for 4 hours at the event, and the rest of that day you get in free.

Submit to run an event to our schedule: This option will be open between 6/3/2017 (our second fundraiser game day) and 9/1/2017.
