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 2016 is not yet open, and will open for GMs on June 1st and for players on September 1st.

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 encourage you to stay at the Sheraton in Stamford so you won't need to travel. We have a block of rooms available at a special rate.

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