New Pricing Changes

After much feedback, TotalCon is changing its pricing policy. TotalCon is implementing a one price badge and will no longer be charging ticket fees. A full weekend badge will be $65 for 4 days pre-reg, $75 at the door. Thursday or Sunday is $20/1 day pre-reg, $25 at the door. Friday or Saturday is $25/1 day pre-reg, $30 at the door.

Childrens' passes are 50% of the adult pass cost.

Tournaments and specially priced events may incur additional costs (see the event listings for additional costs).

Event registration will remain the same. Reserved tickets will receive priority seating at events. Registering for events is highly encouraged as many events fill up quickly. For more information, please visit the Registration Page.

GMs Can Register Events Now!

GMs can register events between now and December 20, 2016. No events will be accepted after this date due to online system and book printing requirements. No exceptions! See details on the GM page.

New GM Reward System

With respect to the badge price changes, the game masters and volunteer appreciation policy has been restructured. Game masters and volunteers will be credited $6 for every 2 hours of event or volunteer time completed onsite at the convention.

All Game Masters and Volunteers must register for the convention. Reimbursement to game masters and volunteers can take up to 60 days after the convention ends unless other arrangements have been made. All reimbursements are through the PayPal system unless other arrangements have been made.
