Welcome to Rock-Con Game Convention! We want to thank all of you who stuck with us while we operated as What-Khan! Thank you also to all our Judges and attendees in 2016 while we welcomed NavCon into the fold. This year we would be thrilled if you could join us as we put both conventions under the header of ROCK-CON! The Rockford convention, by any name, as you know by now, features historical and fantasy miniature gaming, collectible miniatures, role-playing, board gaming, and other events that cover the entire spectrum of adventure gaming. NavCon started as a Milwaukee based naval game convention and joined What-Khan in


2016. Our staff continues to be excited to join with staff, judges, vendors and attendees from another local and well loved convention. NAVCON games will continue to have dedicated floor space at the convention.


The ROCK-CON Staff and Minions look forward to welcoming you back this year!!
