Game Masters (GM)

Game Masters (GMs) are knowledgeable teachers who open the gates to a great many gaming opportunities at GrandCon. From showing newcomers how to play classic games to bringing out new, unique, or rare experiences, each GM event adds another way to have fun.

You don’t need special certification to be a GM at GrandCon. All you need is knowledge of a game and the willingness to show others how it runs. Teach enough games and your badge cost will be on us, with our gratitude!

Game Master (GM) Basics

● All GMs must purchase a convention badge.

● All GM game events are submitted for approval through the registration system.

● Single game events lasting more than 5 hours are subject to approval by the registration team.

Covering Your Badge Cost

● GMs must submit a minimum of 14 approved hours AND 3 approved gaming events to be eligible for a free badge.

○ Approval is based on: space available, duration and/or time of event, and whether the event is show-friendly.

● Prototypes and unpublished games do NOT count toward GM hours earned.

● Upon final approval, a GM badge will be refunded the cost of their previously purchased badge.

Please reach out to us from the contact page if you have any additional GM questions.

Thank you!
