FAQ

 

What kind of events can I run?

 

Any type of community generated content ranging from panels, workshops, demonstrations, events, tournaments and contests. You can run an event on almost any topic that relates to a Fandom, Geek Culture, or the Fandom life style. If you’re not sure if your event will work at Fandemonium then just contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we would be happy to discuss it with you!

 

Do you need to be an expert on a given subject to run an event about it?

 

Of course not, as long as you know something about the subject matter you want to cover that is good enough. As a community, we all learn from one another and someone can learn from you something they didn’t know and then create something new. They in turn may end up in a year or two running an event on the same or a similar subject that you may learn from.

 

Now you may ask yourself, why would you want to run an event at Fandemonium?

 

Simply really, aside from getting the opportunity to take center stage and show off what you know, for each day that you run an event at Fandemonium you get in free.

Welcome to Fandemonium 2015 Table Top Gaming!

Fandemonium has some exciting changes for table top gaming this year.  Now that we have moved to the Grove Hotel, instead of just one room for your table top needs, we now have three!  One for table top games, one for card gaming, and one for miniature gaming.  With this change, we hope to expand our ability to host card gaming tournaments, as well as miniatures battles on a larger scale.

Now that we have so much extra room for tabletop gaming, we need people who want to step up and run games!  Whether it be Pathfinder, Magic the Gathering, Warhammer, Zombie Dice, an original creation or whatever your favorite

we need dedicated members of the gaming community to run games and tournaments at the convention.  Not only will you get a change to try out that new campaign, you can earn your way into the convention for free!  Anyone running a minimum one hour game or tournament will get a free day pass to Fandemonium for the day of their event.  If you run one all three days, you can earn a free three day badge to the convention!  

Are you ready to grab your GM dice and roll?
