Badges Are Available for Purchase!

KublaCon is once again using TableTop.Events to manage our convention back end. You can purchase your weekend badge, submit a game to run, volunteer, and check the event schedule all from the convenience of the fully integrated TTE site.

We also added a shopping cart to this new site for merchandise (like pins) and flea market tables to streamline the process. You CAN buy everything from the site, but if you’d like, ordering your Red, Pink COVID Color, COVID Antique Brass, and Glow-in-the-Dark pins right from here is also possible!

Just because there was no KublaCon Convention in 2020 or 2021; we didn’t want you to miss out on a pin to cover those years. Since it was due to the COVID pandemic that we had to cancel two conventions in a row; we made a memorial pin set. Click here to find out more and to purchase these gems!
