RoberCon – Sci-Fi and board game convention

September 29 @ 9:30 am - September 30 @ 5:00 pm

Come enjoy an entire weekend of panels, guest authors, writer workshops, board games, cosplay, and much more. All housed in the iconic Roberson Museum and Mansion in downtown Binghamton, NY. Badges on sale July 1 at robercon.org.

What’s at RoberCon 2018
Special guest author this year is New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop. Creator of the Black Jewels series, the Others series, the Tir Alainn trilogy, and more. Anne will be appearing on both days of RoberCon, participating in panel discussions and signings!

In addition to having scheduled tabletop sessions for Dungeons and Dragons, Warhammer 40K, Call of Cthulhu, and more, our gaming room will feature a number of board games (fresh from GenCon) available for play. Plus, an entire section of play-and-win board games.

The gaming room will also be open late on Saturday night for some after-hours play (read: this is when we’ll be bringing out Cards Against Humanity and a few other games we keep under the table).

There will be over 40 vendors selling their wares and a number of fan groups tabling during the event.

Also, be sure to bring your best cosplay for our costume contest.

See you September 29 – 30 in Binghamton, NY
