What the Convention is About

Bringing the valley all the fun board games, card games, and RPGs you know and love. Dice are rolled, and friendships are made. We have around 250 attendees and the best GMs. The convention has been around 8 years with 6 years at a public venue. People have met at MaricopaCon and started their own conventions from it, as well as collaborated games. Many of Arizona's game designers (with successful Kickstarters under their belt) gather at MaricopaCon.

About MaricopaCon
MaricopaCon is Arizona's first Kickstarted gaming convention. It started at Jason's house and was held there the first two years. The 3rd year brought about the Kickstarter project and a public venue. This will be the 7th year at a public venue and it will be made possible by the kickstarter supporters and GMs. We specialize in small and cozy feel with a chill atmosphere. MaricopaCon brings together many of the local game designers who have had many successful Kickstarted projects of their own!
