WGGCon is back! We start Friday, September 2, so please RSVP on Facebook or Meetup (or both).
Elliot and Alec will be at the con the entire time, so please text if you require assistance or have questions:
We’re once again at Croton Point Park in the Lodge. Please see this map for the location within the park.
When entering the park, please mention that you’re attending WGGCon, and you’ll receive a discounted car entrance fee of $5. If you rented a cabin, please give your name for first entry. Elliot will then provide your key and parking pass.
If you ever arrive early in the morning or late at night when the gate at the RV park is closed, just text Elliot or Alec to be let in.
We start Friday at 2:00pm and run around the clock until Monday morning. We must clean up and be out of the Lodge by 11:00am on Monday so there won’t be any activity on Monday, but we can game as late as we want on Sunday.
Our world-famous BBQ is on Saturday at 5:00pm. Vegetarian options will be available. We will also have a hot dog cart on Friday evening and provide soda/water and snacks during the entire con. Feel free to bring anything you don’t mind sharing, but you’ll need to provide your own cooler for anything that needs to be kept cold.
We’ll be projecting movies on a big screen after dark each evening. Popcorn and other snacks will be provided.
You’re also welcome to bring your families even if they’re not gamers. Plenty of people will be bringing their children to enjoy the park, but kids under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.

Please bring games to play and share. WGGCon is all about pickup games; so, if you want to play a particular game, please bring it!
Follow this Facebook post to Arrange a Game™.
Our focus is on board and card games, but you’re welcome to play any game that other players are interested in joining.
3rd Universe is a WGGCon sponsor and hosts gaming throughout the week in Croton. They will be onsite to sell the latest games.
For those who pre-ordered WGGCon t-shirts, Elliot will have those available all weekend. Please wear your shirt for the group photo on Saturday at 4:45pm.
Our wildly successful game auction is held on Saturday at 6:30pm (after the BBQ). Please bring any games you’d like to sell. You can download and print the auction form to fill out beforehand or copies will be available onsite. The fee is a flat $3.00 per item and goes toward paying for WGGCon. Buyers may pay cash or credit card (5% fee).

Dr. Finn’s Games is a WGGCon sponsor. Game designer Steve Finn has had multiple successful Kickstarter campaigns and will hopefully be onsite to demo games one of the days. Steve will also be offering his games at discounted prices at WGGCon. Contact him at email@example.com for more info.
Croton Point Pointless 5K
Start your Sunday off early with a 5K fun run through beautiful Croton Point Park.
Welcome To… Roll & Write Game
Peter Horoszowski will host a game of Welcome To… starting Saturday after the auction (around 9:00pm). No experience is necessary, and we only have room for up to 1,000 players so make sure you get a spot!
Geek & Gaming Trivia
Westchester Geeks will be hosting trivia on Sunday at 2:00pm. Questions will cover both gaming and general geekery. Come test your wits against your fellow geeks and win prizes!
Jimmy T will host a Marvel:Remix tournament on Sunday at 4:00pm. No experience is necessary. Gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded, and the gold medalist will take home a fabulous prize!
Health & Safety
All WGGCon attendees are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This is on the honor system. Masks are optional. If you are not feeling well or begin to experience symptoms of COVID-19, please do not attend WGGCon.
WGGCon is paid for entirely with donations. Our costs have increased now that we’re renting the Lodge and buying more food and snacks, but we have faith that our supporters will come through as they have every year.
Our suggested donation is $10-20 per person per day plus $15 for those who join the Saturday BBQ. We don’t have a firm amount because we’d like people to base their donation on how long they spend with us and how much food/snacks/drinks they consume. If you’re only stopping in for a couple hours, feel free to pay $10. If you’re with us around the clock and eat voraciously, then please adjust your donation accordingly.
We also welcome attendees to bring any snacks or food items they’d like to share.
As mentioned above, there’s a $5 per car fee to enter Croton Point Park (please mention you’re attending WGGCon for that reduced rate).
As a thank you for those who donate, we have some fantastic games for our raffle. We’re not selling tickets, but you get a free ticket for every $5 you donate for food and the venue as per above. The games are brand new and shrink wrapped. We’ll draw names Sunday at 6:30pm for each of the six lots; you don’t need to be present to win.
- Venus Needs Men
- Shadows of Brimstone: Swamps of Death
- Axis & Allies & Zombies
- Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game
