AcadeCon 2016 was an amazing event.  Click here to see a picture gallery!  We are currently planning for AcadeCon 2017 – stay tuned for information and announcements by LIKING our Facebook page 

In addition, we are proud to be partnering with the Double Exposure Envoy program to bring some of the newest and hottest games to our convention with their ‘play to win’ program!   Check out these awesome games from some of your favorite designers and publishers.  Each game you play, you can win. The more you play the better your chances.


We’ve finally counted up all the experience gained by running three years of incredible conventions and uncountable hours of our podcasts, and now it is time to take it to the next level!

With AcadeCon 2016: Leveling Up! we at The RPG Academy are expanding and growing our own regional tabletop gaming convention. This year it will be in the Dayton Convention Center, in Dayton, Ohio. AcadeCon is happening November 11th-13th, 2016.

AcadeCon’s primary focus remains tabletop role playing games. But we welcome board games, card games, tactical miniatures games, LARPs, and anything else that gets people together playing games and having fun!

We have had the extreme fortune of building a wonderful community of gamers that listen to our podcast and play games with us. More than anything, we thrive on interacting with our listeners and fans. This is the true purpose of AcadeCon.

If you’ re not sure if this convention is for you or not, please consider our motto: If you’re having fun, you’re doing it right! 

If that sounds like something you’d like to support, please buy a badge and come game with us if you can. If not, a donation goes a long way.

Thank you for checking out our Kickstarter and we hope to see you in November!

(The Kickstarter is now over – but you can order your badges here!)
