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+

KantCon Junior

KantCon Junior is our effort to build inclusive events for parents and guardians with youth attendees. KantCon Junior is not a separate event, but an opportunity for anyone with a Youth badge or little attendee to sign up for and participate in events tailored for our newest gamers. We're exploring options like large-scale board games and activities (giant Connect 4, big Jenga, etc.), a KCJr-specific volunteer for paint-and-take to assist little painters, and a range of RPG and board game events written and run with our youth attendees in mind. As new events get confirmed, we'll let you know!


Note: All attendees under 12 and under must be accompanied by their parent/guardian for KCJr events. As most events will have you playing together at the same table, every adult badge sign-up for a Kantcon Junior event is assumed to involve two players: the youth participant and their adult parent/guardian.

When GMs volunteer and events are submitted, youth-appropriate events will be flagged for KCJr review. For players, keep an eye out for our KantCon Junior meeple logo and a die rating on event sign-ups: a d6 event is appropriate for all ages, a d8 event is a little more complex, and d12+ is for experienced young gamers or guardian/youth duos who are working together and sharing one player role in the game. These die codes will also be applied to a curated portion of the board game library so KCJr attendees can make their board game choices easily.


KantCon Junior events will run throughout the morning and afternoon sessions all three days, but our focus will be Saturday 15 July 2023, 9 am to 6 pm. Some of our biggest events will be held Saturday during those time slots, so if you're only going to bring your little gamers to one day of the convention, that might be the best option for your family.


That being said, we're planning events for all three days and the board game library's always open, so there's never a bad time to check out KantCon Junior.

GMs: varies

Experience Needed: varies

Minimum Age: varies, with some events appropriate for all ages
