Play to Win Games

Check out designated games from the game library, play them, then write down the names and badge numbers of all players who participated in the game (including any teachers you may have had) on the provided cards. When you finish playing the game and return it to the library, and give the card to the attendant.

Rules: All games will be made available for play starting on Friday, Feb. 24 at noon. On Saturday at closing, we will pull all games that have been checked out and draw winners. Games without checkouts will be available for play on Sunday until noon. All games will be awarded at closing ceremonies. You must be present at closing ceremonies on Sunday at 3 pm to win.

Volunteer Opportunities

Have an hour between games? Need to give your eyes a rest before video gaming again? Want to help make GAMICON Fe even better AND win fantastic prizes at the same time?

Volunteer for a few hours. Help us out and give back to your community. No experience needed, just willingness to help. Teens and kids, you can volunteer too!

We’re looking for volunteers to help with a variety of tasks, including conference set up and tear down, handing out registration bags, and running quick errands—even just covering someone’s job for a short amount of time so they can eat! Any age or ability can help with something.

Volunteers get rewards based on the number of hours you work. The more hours you volunteer, the better the rewards. Every volunteer will get a small prize just for helping and raffle tickets for volunteer only prize drawings. Then at the end of the conference, we’ll have a series of raffle drawings that are available only for volunteers. Some volunteer opportunities award double hours and tickets. If you end up working 20 or more hours, you automatically get free membership for next year’s Gamicon along with any raffle prizes!

Please email our volunteer coordinator ( to volunteer or for more information or visit the Volunteer Table at Gamicon Fe.
