Gen Con Games on Demand 2017

We hit our initial $500 goal thanks to our generous donors! This covers basic costs, but we'd like to do more. More ribbons, especially, since that'll drive down the per-unit cost, and more room in the budget for printing costs. So we've increased our goal to $1000. And remember that none of the money will be wasted -- every dollar we don't use for Gen Con 2017 will go to funding future events.

What is Games on Demand?

Games on Demand is an open-gaming event put on at various conventions, sometimes under the “Indie Games Exposion” organizational label. It typically consists of designated area with tables, materials, and a constant supply of enthusiastic volunteers prepared to run a variety of independent and cutting edge games.

Why do we need your help?

Year after year, Indie Games on Demand has been bringing you the best in indie games at various conventions. The event is entirely non-profit and run by volunteers, with funding from donations to cover expenses. This year, we need your help to make Games on Demand happen at Gen Con. Funds will be used for:

* Signage and printing costs: we need to print signs and the "menus" for the games our GMs offer.
* Volunteer support: our volunteers put lots of their valuable convention time into bringing you Games on Demand. In return, we like to show our appreciation for their efforts by providing materials, games, and refreshments whenever we can.
* Badge ribbons: we intend to make available "Games on Demand" and "Games on Demand GM" ribbons. We also intend to provide "my pronouns are" ribbons in four varieties: "she/her", "he/him", "they/their" and fill-in-the-blank.

Any funds not used during this Gen Con event will be held for use at future shows, such as at Origins.

When do we need it?

As of the start of this campaign Gen Con is just a few weeks away, so we need these funds soon! If you can, please throw a few bucks our way so we can make sure this year is the best year yet for Games on Demand!

On behalf of all the organizers of Games on Demand Gen Con 2017, thank you!
