Propose a game

Game proposals can be submitted to the email above or to this Google form. We look forward to seeing your game submissions, be they tabletop roleplaying, larp, board games, or, if you’ve got a way to make it work, video games!

Once you have submitted your game proposal you can expect an email from within the next couple days confirming that we received your submission and asking any follow up questions.

Games at WisCon are accountable to the WisCon Code of Conduct. We encourage people to think about the well-being of their fellow players and facilitators while taking part in games! Some tools that might be helpful (originally curated for RPGs, but still useful for other games) can be found at the TTRPG Safety Toolkit.

Game scheduling

For games taking place in the dedicated gaming room, refer to the online schedule (link to come) or the physical schedule (located in the Open Gaming room) for which games are running and where. If you’re planning to participate please arrive on time, and consider reserving a spot by emailing us at the address at the top of the page.

The Open Gaming room is open throughout the con! Please stop by any time to see if new games are starting up soon, or start one yourself; board gaming in this space is open to casual drop-ins.

Reserving seats

Reserve a seat to ensure a spot in one of our games! Reservations are not required, but they are recommended, especially for role-playing and storytelling games.

For role-playing and storytelling games, please sign up by contacting us at, or visit the Gaming table at the Gathering on Friday. We advertise games that are looking for players throughout the con, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for posters, tweets, and whispers.
