These are the conventions we're currently planning to attend. (If you're only looking for the events that Steve's attending, that list is over here.) For a listing of ALL the game conventions we've been told about, 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.
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 (i.e. free stuff) to GMs who run SJ Games events at conventions – just ask us!. And we can sometimes provide other types of convention support . . . send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org 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 with the SJ Games booth at certain conventions.

Feb. 21-28: JoCo Cruise – Eastern Caribbean, Eastern Caribbean
Location: Eastern Caribbean
What is the JoCo Cruise? Look here ( www.jococruise.com ) . Or, for those who didn't click the link: it's a week on the Caribbean on a humongous luxurious boat, with some excellent musicians, starting with Jonathan Coulton himself and backed up by Paul and Storm and a lot of other talent. You really ought to go click that link. For this year's JoCo Cruise we are doing three special events for the gaming track: a general "What's New at SJ Games" event at which secrets will be revealed, a status report on the Munchkin Shakespeare brainstorm that Steve and Andrew did on last year's cruise, and a NEW brainstorm at which the attendees will get to help Steve and Andrew rough out a new, NON-Munchkin game. In our fourth event there will be a Munchkin playoff. Four aspiring munchkins will win seats at that table during the cruise's earlier gaming events. They will play against Steve Jackson himself! If He wins, he keeps the prize! Fnord.
