We at G33K-HQ will once again be heading to northern Nevada to covering RAGECon in Sparks Nevada. Last year we had a wonderful time taking pictures and helping with the the cosplay costume contest. We got plenty of pictures of the game play and cosplayers. After hours we even got to participate in games from the game library. Here is some of my pictures from last years event and this years official press release. See you all soon.

SPARKS, Nev. – RAGECon, the Reno Area Gaming Expo, returns to Sparks for its third year this summer, and Northern Nevada’s newest and biggest tabletop gaming convention expects to attract over 400 attendees.
This year’s convention will be held at the Nugget Casino Resort, 1100 Nugget Avenue in Sparks. The event will be open from noon to midnight, June 24; 8 a.m. – midnight, June 25; and 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., June 26. Registration fees range from $20 for one day or $50 for a three-day pass.

In addition to board, card, dice, miniatures and role playing games, the convention will feature special guests, tournaments, workshops, panel discussions, a cosplay contest and vendors selling everything from games to artwork based clothing. Some of the tournaments at the convention will be X-Wing, Warhammer 40k and Magic the Gathering. Experienced gamers will be on hand to teach new attendees, and a game library of more than 400 games will be available.
New to the convention this year, RAGECon is proud to host the Double Exposure West Coast Championship tournament. It will feature five easy-to-learn card games, and the winner of each tournament will get a seat at the national championship at Gen Con 2016 in Indianapolis. Gen Con is the original, longest-running game convention in the world.
Back by popular demand, game designer John Wick will run several sessions of his popular role playing game 7th Sea: Second Edition. Wick successfully funded over a million dollars in Kickstarter campaigns for the game.
