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.

Sept. 2-4: Nan Desu Kan – Aurora, CO
Location: The Gaylord of the Rockies, 6700 North Gaylord Rockies Blvd, Aurora, CO 80019
Nan Desu Kan is the Premier Anime Convention of the Rocky Mountains. Our fans come from across the Rocky Mountain region as well as Kansas and several other surrounding states. In addition, we have moved to a much larger venue to allow our convention to expand further, so we are continuing expansion and growth as a convention. This year, we will be at the Gaylord of the Rockies, conveniently located close to DIA. Many of our attendees save up their money all year waiting for Nan Desu Kan, and the spending index of our attendees has been compared to larger conventions because we are the premier Anime festival in the Rocky Mountain region.
