Bidding an Event for Intercon

Intercon is the premiere Live Action Role Playing convention in the world. We've gotten this way by seeking out a diverse selection of LARPs, in as many different styles and genres as we can find. Ask ten LARPers what LARP is about and you'll get thirteen different answers. We're trying to find interesting games that satisfy as many of those possibilities as we can. We encourage new authors to bid games as much as we recruit experienced authors. We also encourage authors who've never run at an Intercon before to bid. Whether it's a new game or one that's been run before, we're interested in what you have to propose

Bid Deadlines

Intercon solicits bids for games in rounds, as needed, based on the number of registrants we get. It's our goal to have a great schedule of games up as early as possible!

Round Bid Deadline Decision Date
First: May 15th June 1st.

Game bids received before the deadline will be evaluated in a timely manner. Early bids will get an early decision!

The Intercon Game Schedule is announced.
Game registration is opened.
Second: To Be Determined 2 weeks later
Intercon schedules games as needed
to meet registration demands
Third: If needed 2 weeks later, if needed

Intercon actively solicits bids in the months leading up to the convention. As the convention attendance grows, based on registration numbers, we may need a third round of bids to fill in the strong slate of games already accepted for the convention.

Why Bid Early?

There are several great reasons to get your game bid in early:

  • You're likelier to get the time slot you desire. As the schedule fills, the prime time slots fill up.
  • Your game gets more publicity and advertising. It's likelier to fill earlier, which will give you more time to cast and plan.
  • You get a better chance at attracting the players who know that it's smart to sign up early for games.
  • You might miss your chance to bid at all if you wait. There are many GMs who know how much fun it is to run a game at Intercon!
