Like most people, we’ve been gaming a bit more since this pandemic (not the board game) started. Renegade Game Studios just announced that it will hold its first ever Renegade Con on June 5 to 7 for free; interested gamers can register for digital workshops as the publisher will announce brand new titles and hold other fun events.
We are pleased to announce Renegade Con, the first convention produced to showcase all of the Renegade Game Studios’ games and all of their fandoms. This first convention also has the distinction of being the first convention we are participating in, completely on-line. We have endeavored to make everything you love about a convention, found in one place, over one great weekend of gaming from Friday, June 5th to Sunday, June 7th.
We will feature demos of new games like the gorgeous tile-laying game Succulent, quick-playing card game, Space Battle Lunchtime, the solo game Warp’s Edge, and the strategy game, The Search for Planet X! We also have teamed up with Hunter’s entertainment to bring you RPG demos of our games Wardlings, Kids on Bikes based Junior Braves, and many more titles from Hunter’s library. We have partnered with Tabletopia and Roll20 to bring you experienced GM’s and a true demo team, we will bring you the feel of playing a quick demo at the convention.
No convention would be complete without panels, discussions, and of course a chance meeting of artists and designers. They are a core component of any event and we have tried to cover these moments as well. You will find an extensive list of live panels with topics ranging from Art to the Industry and Power Rangers to Development stories. Be sure to check them out and ask questions during the Q&A segment. We also have set up interviews with some of our favorite people. While you might not be able to bump into them, we hope we can have a comfortable chat that lets you get to know people like Kwanchai Moriya, Ivan Van Norman, and Jon Gilmour a little better.
Workshops will be going on throughout the entire weekend. With a dozen of them scheduled, there is sure to be something for everyone. There is a huge range of topics from Instagramming your photos taught by a professional photographer, to using themes in board games by the amazing Banana Chan and guests. You will find something for the inner painter in multiple classes and puzzle designs for escape rooms from actual designers.
No convention would be complete without the meeting of friends and playing of games, and we are trying to bring you together through our #Hashtag League and Raiders of the North Sea Tournament. In the #Hashtag League you will be playing Renegade games and posting them to your favorite social media using the hashtag #RenConHashtagleague all throughout the weekend. We will pick winners at random each day to win fabulous Renegade prize packs! The tournament will have feature feeder games all weekend and finals on Sunday. Using Tabletopia contestants will play to win the coveted trophy and be crowned the best in the North Sea!
The best part of all this is that we are doing the inaugural Renegade Con: Virtual edition for free.

We are asking everyone to register for a free ticket so we can keep them informed about the event and all the things to come!
