Next event: Nov30th-Dec2- tickets available now!

Thanks for visiting and welcome to the family!

KCGameOn is a not-for-profit organization that hosts gaming events where we promote community casual and competitive play in the Kansas City metro.

We host all types of gaming like PC, Console, Boardgaming/Tabletop, DnD and even drone racing (tiny whoop).

GENERAL INFORMATION:

KCGameOn hosts two different event types during the year

One event type is our "community gaming event" that hosts 300-400 people, runs 15 hours bi-monthly, has a small raffle, expo and provides snacks/pop/candy and a catered dinner at a building near downtown Kansas City. We host this event FIVE times a year.

The second type is our "gaming convention," which takes place the first week of December is named "KCGameCON" (Kansas City Gaming Convention) and it is dedicated to gaming culture, has a large expo, featuring esports tournaments with stages, several prize raffles, promotes cosplay and costume judging and a 500+ person LAN (local area network) which is hosted at the KCI Expo Center and runs for 48+ straight hours!

  • For more information and the history of KCGameOn, visit the About Us page
  • Our events are "Bring your own computer/console/device." This allows our event to accomodate different audiences and run efficient tournaments since everyone involved plays at the same time (no sitting around for hours waitng for a spot to open).
  • This is an all ages event, but if the gamer is 13 and younger, he/she will need to be accompanied by an adult.
  • All persons at the event must sign a standard liability Wavier - if the gamer is under 13, it must also be signed by his/her guardian. This only needs to be signed once a year.
