Welcome to the KublaCon Game Convention website!

We are so glad you found us!

Our next in-person convention is slated for Memorial Day Weekend, May 26th to 29th, 2023. We look forward to seeing you again!!

Continuing our Heroes of Sci-Fi

The text under Continuing our Heroes of Sci-Fi should be replaced with the following: We are thrilled to announce that the Hero of Sci-Fi that has been selected for 2023’s KublaCon 21 is none other than, Doctor Who! Our version, Doctor Whobla (shown on the right) epitomizes all things Doctor Who. We are kicking off our celebration of 60 years of this iconic traveler through time and space with an annual pin to mark the occasion. Get your Doctor Whobla Red Pin ordered here and pick it up at the convention!

20th Anniversary COVID Memorial Kubla Pin

We still have our official 20th Anniversary convention COVID Memorial pins for sale.

To commemorate and memorialize the absence of KublaCon of 2020 and 2021, two (2) very special double-sized pins were created for our attendees.

The first is a full-color COVID Memorial Kubla Pin whose proceeds will help KublaCon recover from the past two years. The second is a raised relief antique brass pin with a slightly different design. This design’s proceeds are going to help the many frontline workers that helped everyone get through the pandemic.

Historical Board Games

These events are games based on historical events throughout time. Since these games take a lot more concentration that the average Euro or American boardgame; we set aside quiet space up on the hotel’s 9th floor for the Historical enthusiasts.

Kubla Khan

The poem that inspired the creation of KublaCon. 

Kubla Khan

by  SAMUEL TAYLOR COLERIDGE

Or, a vision in a dream. A Fragment.

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan

A stately pleasure-dome decree:

Where Alph, the sacred river, ran

Through caverns measureless to man

   Down to a sunless sea.

So twice five miles of fertile ground

With walls and towers were girdled round;

And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,

Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;

And here were forests ancient as the hills,

Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.

The shadow of the dome of pleasure

   Floated midway on the waves;

   Where was heard the mingled measure

   From the fountain and the caves.

It was a miracle of rare device,

A sunny pleasure-dome with caves of ice!

For over 20 years, KublaCon has been a safe space to experience FUN with the hobby of tabletop gaming.
