Youmacon 2018

Youmacon is a popular culture event similar to most “Comic Cons”, however instead of focusing on comic books, Youmacon is a celebration of Japanese popular culture and its influence on our own culture over the past few decades. Common themes throughout the event are Anime (Japanese animation), Video Games, Japanese style artwork and comics, and the rising internet culture influenced by all of the above.

Wearing costumes, or “Cosplay” as it’s known at conventions, is very popular with attendees of Youmacon. It is not uncommon to walk into a pair of Italian plumbers in overalls on the escalator, only to meet someone dressed as Edward Elric or Master Chief from Halo minutes later.

The CONTINUUM 2018

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.

Join the Down the Vent crew for their 5th year of events! This April we are bringing you DTV Lite, a board game convention focused on bringing everyone together to raise money for a good cause! A badge will grant you access to check out any of the games from our library for open play, and the option to sign up for events. We will not be bringing our entire library to this event (it’s Lite for a reason), so please make sure to let us know if there is a specific game you are looking to try!

Badges are only $15 (or $10 if you pre-register) and allows entrance for the entire day. We will also have a Family Pass available during pre-registration only for a cost of $25. The Family Pass includes badges for two adults and two children.

Ambercon 2018

Welcome to Ambercon! The next Ambercon – the 28th – will be from Thursday, March 22nd through Sunday, March 25th, 2018!

Though Amber Diceless Role-Playing has been old enough to drink for ten years now (it has been thirty-one years since Erick Wujcik first showed ADRP), it is still going strong.

But … Ambercon is a broad-spectrum diceless gaming and indie gaming convention! We’ve got superheroes, musketeers, characters from various fictional settings we won’t name here due to fear of lawsuits, SOE operatives, cowboys, and, of course, Amber-based games… you name it, we’ll game it!
