The show is over! We all survived! Thanks to everyone who came, as con members, staff, dealers, speakers . . . and again, a special thanks to our GoH, John Kovalic!
Watch for an announcement of the con "What's New" video.
We may very well do another virtual event this fall.

We are delighted to announce that the team from Turbo Dork, makers of amazing metallic and color-changing paints for models and minis, will be joining us at the con. Come meet them!
The convention schedule has been updated, and this version is more or less final.

The Indiegogo campaign for FnordCon swag closed at 501 backers . . . such a success that all the attendees will get more and better swag too, including a 4GB thumb drive preloaded with all kinds of Good Stuff.

FnordCon 5 . . . is Live! The Steve Jackson Games convention returns April 29 - May 1, and this time, it's live here in Austin! We'll be at the Austin Southpark Hotel, with panels revealing upcoming games, hobby tutorials, demo games, and more (and we'll have an awesome swag bag). We've been all digital for a very long two years now, and while FnordCon Virtual won't be going away, we wanted to bring back the live events when we could, and planning ahead we felt like this was the best time frame to make that happen.
We know that not everyone can attend, or is ready to back to live events, so we do plan on having some live-stream integration as well. Stay tuned for more specific event information.
For in-person attendees, we have a hotel block with signups opening soon, but we wanted to reveal the date now so you have time to get ready. Safety-wise, we will require proof of vaccination and masks from attendees. Of course, with rising cases of COVID and the ever-changing local ordinances, we will keep everyone up to date if anything shifts, but the hotel is officially booked, so this is moving ahead as if it's happening.
We're excited to host a FnordCon in person again, and hope to see many of y'all here this spring!
We are still making plans, but we can share that John Kovalic will be joining us for FnordCon 5 this spring.
Stay tuned for more updates!
