Special Events

KantCon promises to have all kinds of games and events to fill up your weekend with maximum fun! Check out the events on this page for something a little special.

Artemis - Bridge Simulator


Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator will be at KantCon 2022. If you ever wanted to be part of the crew of a starship here is your chance. You can choose to be the Communications Officer, Science Officer, Helmsman, Weapons Officer, Engineer, Fighter Pilot, or of course the Captain. All Officers but the Captain have their own workstation and the Captain directs the crew to the far reaches of space. Will you be a peaceful exploratory team or blow the hostile aliens out of space?



Sessions will be running roughly every 30 minutes during convention hours. Starting sometime Friday afternoon/evening and continuing through to Sunday afternoon. Reserved time for special events or a group may be coordinated on site with the host.

GMs: Richard and Tammy Norton

Experience Needed: None.

Minimum Age: 6+

Dungeon of Doooom!


The Dungeon 'O Dooooooom is a 3D Dungeon Delve experience where you play one of 6 heroes who are trying to fight their way to the center of the dungeon in order to destroy the evil that has come to this realm. When a player character dies, there will be a bone taken from the character sheet and placed in the dungeon to mark where that character died. We use Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition rules. Never played a role-playing game? No worries. We will teach you the basics. Observers are always welcome.


Sessions will be running for roughly 2 hour blocks with 1 hour breaks during convention hours. Starting sometime Friday morning and continuing through to Sunday afternoon. 

GMs: Doug Howard, John West, Nick Tillman, and Wesley Howard

Experience Needed: None.

Minimum Age: 6+

Games Workshop's Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game


The Breaking of the Fellowship is a two day, five round tabletop miniature event set in Middle-earth. Players will bring armies good and evil armies by Games Workshop to either capture or destroy the One Ring.  


This event continues Tolkien story after the breaking of the Fellowship as Sauron searches to find the One Ring to control all of Middle-earth, while the forces of good attempt to take the One Ring to Mount Doom to destroy it.  


Tabletop terrain will reflect the various locales of Middle-earth where players can pit their armies of good or evil against one another. 


On Friday we will run Goblin Town Civil War to determine the next King of Goblin after the devious assault by Thorin King under the Mountain.  All figures will be provided for this event. 


Tables will also be available for everyone to learn Games Workshop Middle-earth Strategy Battlegame all weekend long. 


These events are sponsored by the Kansas City Hobbit League and Mindgames and Magic in Lee’s Summit.

Math Trade


KantCon 2022 is here and this year, we have a Math Trade event on Saturday, July 30th 2022! What is a Math Trade? This is a trade between a whole bunch of people at once, using an algorithm to decide who should send their game to whom. By matching together the likes and dislikes of a lot of people at the same time, many more trades become possible. Board Games and RPGs are welcome (No Cash or Video Games though, sorry!). Jump on the BoardGameGeek Geeklist for further instructions, rules and to start adding items now! If you have any questions, you can message Richard through BoardGameGeek mail (@Gazthrak), or email rich@twopips.com.


Final trade meetup will occur next to the registration table at 1 PM and will be open until 3 PM, although once your trades are completed, then there is no reason to stick around. That would take away from the gaming!




Saturday, July 20th 1pm-2pm

Facilitator: Richard Yambo
