What is Gary Con?

Gary Con is an annual tabletop gaming convention held in honor of Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons. Noble Knight Games is proud to be a sponsor and vendor for this incredible gathering.

Hosted and organized by members of the Gygax family, this RPG-focused event celebrates a Life Well Played! Featuring tons of game tables and demos ranging from D&D and other roleplaying games to miniature combat games, board games and more, this convention is non-stop fun.

Visit the vendor hall and say hello to us at our booth, attend a panel, meet special guests and industry legends, grab a drink with friends in the lounge, and of course, get your Game on! What better way to celebrate the ongoing legacy of Gary Gygax than to play lots of games?

Where else but in beautiful Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, the birthplace of Dungeons & Dragons. Geographically, this city is located in the South-Eastern part of Wisconsin, fairly close to the Illinois border. It lies between Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago and is an easy drive from any of these major hubs.

The event itself is hosted at the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, where on-site accommodations can be obtained. Several other hotels are available nearby, as the Grand Geneva does tend to sell out of rooms during this event.

See you at Gary Con!

Noble Knight Games is excited to be a part of Gary Con 2022! We will have a corner booth in the vendor hall, and hope you will come say hello. Keep your eyes out for our ad in the Gary Con program and special postcards that will feature a special discount code for our website, just for Gary Con attendees.

We’ll be running a bit of a giveaway, slinging some sweet vintage (and new) RPGs, board games, answering your questions, and hopefully running/playing in some games.  See you all in Lake Geneva!
