Started in 2013, the Michigan GT began as a Warhammer 40K tournament that has now grown to include many other wargames. Whether you’re interested in fantasy, sci-fi, historical, or steampunk games, there is an event for you! We pride ourselves on having great terrain, prize support, and an atmosphere that appeals to both the casual and the serious wargamer. Our staff, tournament organizers, volunteers, and sponsors work together to bring you a gaming experience that is unparalleled in the mid-Michigan area.
The Continuum is a celebration of science-fiction, fantasy, hard science, music, gaming, animation, film and cosplay.
The Continuum is not your typical convention! We stand out with our well-supplied Convention Hospitality Suite, a Saturday Night Costume Ball, a merchandise area with a wide variety of offerings, several tracks of programming of interest to members and a loyal following of staff and panel participants. Our programming includes literature/sci-fi/fantasy, science/space, music and gaming. There is always something of interest to everyone going on! We also have a video room that screens rare anime and fan-created offerings not seen elsewhere. For NaNoWriMo participants, we offer prep workshops and panels focused on writing.
At The Continuum, you can have the type of day where you attend a tea tasting and history lesson before learning to swordfight, take a breather in a panel where your favorite author discusses world building, then end the day by painting miniatures and listening to someone sing about Star Wars.
GrandCon features tabletop gaming in all its forms, including the creators behind them. We provide an atmosphere that will allow gamers to mingle and appreciate their shared interests.
Come to play or chat with fellow enthusiasts in a community that understands your passions. Find adventure with favorite role-playing game. Meet the creators behind your favorite mainstream and independent games. Check out unpublished games, maybe design a game, and sneak a peek at great things to come.
