ANONYCON 2016

What it's all about?

AnonyCon is an annual game convention that brings people together to have fun, build community and showcase new games. We bring story-focused games to a wider audience through an inclusive, weekend-long gathering. We welcome games of all types and each year we try to feature games with opportunities for creative storytelling and problem solving.

AnonyCon is also about friendship! Bring your friends to AnonyCon to receive prizes! And you're sure to make new friends while you are here!

Registration for the convention will open later this year.

You are also welcome to attend the convention without any advance scheduling. You can enjoy pick-up games, a wide assortment of RPGs, video games, card games and board games, and shop in the vendor area.

To help make this a fun weekend, we have a block of rooms at a special rate. We encourage you to stay at the Sheraton in Stamford so you won't need to travel.

AnonyCon is dedicated to a harassment-free convention experience for everyone. Our anti-harassment policy can be found here.

How it works

All attendees need to register on Warhorn to sign up for events. We have a limited number of one-day memberships available as well.

Click the “Sign Up” button on the left of the page to register if you do not already have a Warhorn account. When your account is setup then proceed as follows:

Pay for your badge via Paypal on our Warhorn site. Include your Warhorn username in your order instructions or you cannot be cleared for signup.

If you can't register through WarHorn, you can register via mail.

Remember to refer your friends to AnonyCon to receive prizes!

Any account not paid when by November 1st will be shifted to on-site pricing. You will receive an email confirming your ability to sign up for games. Sign up for the games you’d like to play.




GAME SUBMISSION

Want to run a game?

Share your game proposals with us here. GMs who have their games committed in advance onto our schedule get discounts or free admission. We also have prizes and random prize drawings for our GMs and Volunteers. Game registration is not yet open - please check back later in the year!

Our GM organizers, Becky and Joe, will contact you about your GM schedule. Please confirm your game and slot schedule with them in order to get your registration discount applied. Tell them your Warhorn username. Each slot volunteered gives you a raffle entry for our swag, plus:

  • One slot = $10 discount for the weekend
  • Two slots = $20 discount for the weekend
  • Three or more = free admission for the weekend and prize tickets for each game above 3!

Sign up to GM or volunteer for some slots and then sign up to play in the slots you have open.

For public play campaigns like D&D Adventurer’s League, Pathfinder Society and others, pre-mustering your tables (organizing into groups before the game starts) is helpful but not mandatory. We do find that it speeds things up though.

Many attendees decide to sign up for games on-site and not preregister on Warhorn. In order to do our best to satisfy demand and provide quality games we use Warhorn to allocate GMs. Most games have limited seating available and we will seat players with advanced registrations first. To make certain that you have access to all the games you want, please register and reserve your seat.

Waitlisting is available and in the event that there are any last minute cancellations we will fill games from the waitlist first, then from players who show up to the muster. Have no fear that our skilled people-herders will fill tables appropriately at the convention and get everybody into a fun game.




HOTEL BLOCK

Need a place to stay?

We highly recommend you stay at the hotel for the weekend of the convention. It will be more fun to be local and not worry about travel time. The hotel has Wi-Fi and complimentary breakfast.

You can reach the hotel at:

Sheraton Stamford Hotel
700 East Main St
Stamford, CT
203-358-8400
800-325-3535

If you are walking from the train station (0.7 miles), you probably want to go this way. The hotel also has a shuttle that can pick you up from the taxi and bus waiting area after you get off the train. Call the hotel to arrange this





REFERRALS

Want to bring a friend?

AnonyCon is offering special AnonyCon dice bags in Loot-Tier colors for people who help recruit for the event. For each person you refer who attends, you unlock a new tier of color choices for your complimentary dice bag! Collect your prize upon registration and use it during the event to show off how you helped AnonyCon to grow!

  • One referred guest: white AnonyCon dice bag
  • Two referred guests: green blue AnonyCon dice bag
  • Three referred guests: blue AnonyCon dice bag
  • Four referred guests: purple AnonyCon dice bag

If you have a preferred color, but bring too many friends, you can always choose to get a dice bag from a lower tier than the one you earned.
