This is the Rockford Game Convention you are looking for!

NEW Location:


Welcome to Registration! Thank you for registering to attend the convention. We have attempted to streamline the registration process by asking some key questions in the registration form.




We have brought back the option to pay registrations from the website this year. When you submit your Badge Registration form you will be taken to a website with a PayPal link where you can complete your payment from there. JUDGES, do NOT make your payments through this link.

Those submitting games, your invoice will be issued after the close of Events Registration to properly discount the days you are running games from your registration. If you wish to resolve your admission earlier, please email us at Registration@Rock-Con.com to confirm that you have completed ALL event submissions you intend on making.


Payments due can be sent US Postal Mail to our PO Box that will be noted on the invoice. All payments must be received or postmarked by the deadline to receive the pre-registration pricing and ability to sign up for games prior to the convention. Discounts for Military, Police, etc service will be given at the door with valid ID and difference will be refunded via PayPal at the door for those that have prepaid but have necessary ID.


If you are submitting games, please do so in the Event Registration Tab below AFTER completing Badge Registration and our Events Coordinator will be in touch after reviewing your submission.


PLEASE NOTE Website forms are optimized for Chrome or Firefox Browsers. We've had reported issues with Safari and Opera Browsers at this time.


Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at ROCK-CON!

    • Events and Games registered before September 15th will be available for advanced sign up.
    • Attendees that have registered and PAID for their badge by September 25th will receive a listing of Events available for advanced sign up. All returned sign up preferences will be handled on a first come, first serve basis. Full instructions will be made available with this worksheet.
    • There will still be some slots reserved in most games to sign up on site.
    • Games are still free with the exception of Tournaments or other games where the judge/organizer requests a modest fee to cover prize costs. You may still register for those events through Tournament Registration (see tab lower on this page).

  • EVENT REGISTRATION (click to open)

    Complete and submit this form to submit game(s). Upon approval of the game, you will qualify for a "Judge" Badge.



    Thank you for offering your game or event to the attendees. Please complete the form on this page and our Events Coordinator will be in touch with any questions and/or approval of your event for this year's convention. ROCK-CON appreciates our Game Masters and provides a $10 discount on your badge for each slot/session that your approved game runs. This is a great way to reduce your admission fees for the convention (i.e. 1 game Saturday gets you Saturday free admission; 3 games across the weekend or 1 tourney spanning 3 sessions gets you the weekend free). Please note that you must complete badge registration in ADDITION to completing this Event Submission form to insure a badge will be ready for you.



    • If you have changes to make on a game that you have already submitted for 2017, please email the staff directly rather than duplicating your submission.
    • Please note that games submitted after September 15th may still be approved but will NOT be available for pre-registration of players, listed in the program and will not qualify for the "Judge's Discount" for admission to the convention.
    • The staff will do what we can to meet any table requests or special requirements noted on your submission on a first come, first serve basis. Your email confirmation will note any exceptions.
    • The convention schedule allows 30 minutes to set up and 30 minutes to clean up for each Judge.
    • Event submissions will be reviewed in the order in which they are received.
    • Judge badges MUST be pre-registered and pre-paid to receive the discounted admission.
