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 Prototypes and unpublished game events do NOT count toward hours earned for a GM badge.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 when tallying hours earned for a GM badge.

GMs must purchase a badge. Once all of your events go through a FINAL approval by the registration team, you may be issued a free GM badge. If you do indeed 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.

Please Read:  As a GM you will 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 the registration staff once your event concludes and as soon as you are able.  If you have any additional questions about being a GM at GrandCon please reach out to info@grand-con.com.

Tournament Registration:  Tournaments must be approved through GrandCon’s registration team, and are always welcome, as long as the space is available. You would want to set these up as early as possible, and not wait until a few weeks prior to the show.
