Scout Badge Information

Scouts of America and up to 3 immediate family members may receive discounted 3-DAY badges.  A Scout family that purchases the 3 additional family badges must have their Scout in uniform accompany them at the time of checkin to retain the discounted badge pricing.

Game Design Merit Badge: Scouts have the opportunity to gather information at the show which they can apply toward earning a Game Design Merit Badge. Scouts should contact their troop leaders for additional information on how to earn this badge.

Game Design Kits: GrandCon has a discounted game design kit a Scout may purchase from our merchandise page located here.

Game Masters Submit Your Events

GM Badges | Time Demoing: A GM must submit a minimum of 14 hours AND 3 events to be considered for a free GM badge. Prototypes and unpublished game events do NOT count toward hours earned for a GM badge. Single game events that are 5+ hours are subject to approval.

GMs must first purchase a 3-DAY badge. Once all of your events go through a FINAL approval by our registration team, you may be issued a free GM badge. If you qualify, then GrandCon will refund the purchase of your original badge as we get closer to the show dates. Game events are approved based upon space, time of submission, whether or not they show friendly, and are not considered “lengthy events” such as Twilight Imperium or 5+ hours games.

As a GM you agree to collect event tickets from the attendees that you GM'd.  You will need to submit these collected event tickets along with your GM sheet to registration once your event concludes or as soon as you are able.  If you have any additional questions about being a GM at GrandCon please reach out to with “GM at GrandCon” in the subject line.

Tournaments must be approved by GrandCon’s events team. You would want to contact us and get your tournament up as early as possible, and don’t wait until a few weeks prior to the show to submit.

If you would like to run any other special event at GrandCon, you must  submit your request to the events team. Please click this link events team. Select “Other” in the dropdown menu, and type “Special Event Request” in the subject line.
