Game Design Workshop

Do you have an idea for a board or card game? Do you know what you need to do to get it published? At this informal workshop you can learn how to make your game better, how to develop, test, and sell your game. You are welcome to bring your ideas and prototypes with you!

Play-and-Win Games Come to RoberCon 2018

RoberCon is bringing even more games to the table through our Play-and-Win program. It’s available to all RoberCon attendees who purchased access to our Gaming room. Guests can play one of the games listed below and the winner(s) receive one copy of the game that was used during the convention–not a new copy.

These games were donated by one or more developers and producers to raise awareness of their amazing creations.


  • Check out a Play-and-Win Game, when available, from our labeled section. Please note: Play-and-Win games will be labeled. Some games will be from the RoberCon library.
  • Play the game with a group of people.
  • Return the game and tell a staff member your name and contact information to enter you for a chance to win the game you just played. Please note: Only one entry per person per Play-to-Win game.

Winners names will be posted in the Gaming Room Sunday at 3pm, in addition, an email/text will be sent to winners. If a winner fails to pick-up their game by Sunday at 3:30pm, a new winner will be selected.

Available Games

We’ve had a number of developers send us some games for you shiny people to play and take home! The list is still being updated, and we’ll receive more games after GenCon.

RoberCon takes place September 29 – 30 and features two days of scheduled tabletop sessions, panels, artists, authors, workshop, and more.
