This is a schedule of the game conventions that we know about, some of which we plan to attend. We are more than happy to help you promote your convention. If you'd like to add your con to our list, use our handy convention registry form.
We can also provide support to GMs who run SJ Games events at conventions and other types of convention support, such as GMs to run SJ Games events! Send mail to email@example.com and let us know how we can help.
You can download these posters to publicize your games and help you find new players at conventions (or stores, or schools)!
We also need volunteers to help us at conventions.
Conventions listed with this pyramid symbol will have an SJ Games staffer in attendance. (For a list of JUST those conventions we'll be attending, click here.) If you would like a Steve Jackson Games staffer at your event, please read our guidelines for requesting a guest for your convention.

June 23-25: LibertyCon 35 – Chattanooga, Tennasee
Location: Chattanooga Marriott Downtown, and Convention Center
You probably know by now that LibertyCon is a convention that prides itself on great guests, phenomenal panels, a killer ConSuite and our "Family Friendly Atmosphere". We're a convention that is small on purpose (we limit the attendees to 1000, which is actually in our Charter) since we want to give the fans a chance to sit down and chat with the guests. Sure we could try to bring in twice the attendees, but do you think you'd be able to sit on a couch with Terry Brooks talking about law or playing Magic the Gathering with Brandon Sanderson if we did?

July 15: GottCon – San Jose, CA
Location: San Jose Masonic Center, 2500 Masonic Drive, San Jose, CA 95125
t is a day long tabletop game experience, where we encourage everyone to try something new: card games, board games, miniature wargames, tabletop roleplaying games. Hunt for a bargain at our flea market, sell worry free with our drop-off "bring and buy", or share the wealth at our "free cycle". Try your hand at miniature painting or just get to know folks in your local community. This is a not-for-profit event. We are facilitating this as a fund-raising event for some of the Masonic youth groups that we are associated with and most proceeds will go to fund their activities.
