A little about Pacificon
The Pacificon Game Expo offers an amazing array of fun events for the entire Northern California gaming community. For 31 years, Pacificon has been the Bay Area’s Labor Day Gaming Convention where friends come together and make new friends playing games through all hours of the day. The beautiful Santa Clara Marriott Hotel affords the perfect spot for gamers to while away the holiday weekend surrounded by a hotel staff that is expert at meeting our needs. You can find all kinds of games at the show, be it miniatures, board, card, role playing, or LARP, Pacificon has got it all!
The Pacificon Game Expo can be a wonderful experience for the entire family. We offer a young players program geared especially towards the younger players. Also, the amazing amenities such as the beautiful pool, hot tub and grounds are a welcome vacation spot for everyone. And then there is Great America theme park, right next door to the convention! Pacificon also offers special Family Passes for those budget-minded families. New this year will also be a costume contest for 12 and under.
The family friendly con will have all kinds of stuff from miniatures, to board games to card games, role playing and LARP and much much more. Held at the beautiful Santa Clara Marriott Hotel right in the middle of the silicon valley, this is a great way to end the summer and have some.
If you are a frequent listener to our show, the question always is: Can I bring the kids????
The answer is a resounding YES! This is a wonderful con for the entire family. There is a young players program, as well as costume contest for kids 12 and under. There will me miniature painting and lots of other fun stuff for kids of all ages to enjoy.
Will the Geekline415 geeks REALLY be at Pacificon?
