WGGCon 2023 (details)

Alec Usticke Announcements

WGGCon returns Friday, September 1, 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:
Elliot: 914-525-6375
Alec: 914-382-7464


We’re once again at Croton Point Park in the Senasqua Lodge. Please see this map for the location within the park.

When entering the park, please mention that you’re attending WGGCon to 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 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 on Monday morning, but we can game as late as we want on Sunday night.

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 outside after dark on Friday and Saturday. (Thank you to Paul Gerardi and Wilfried Teiken for the big screen and projector.) 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. Dogs are allowed at the park but must be leashed and may not go inside the Lodge.

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!

You can also use our Discord Game Scheduling forum to arrange games with others.

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

3rd Universe is a WGGCon sponsor and hosts gaming throughout the week in Croton. They will be onsite to sell the latest games.

They will also host Magic and Pokémon events. Wilds of Eldraine Prerelease will be held Friday at 6:30pm. Obsidian Flames Build & Battle will be held Saturday at 2:00pm. Each is limited to 16 players, and advance signup is required.

Game Auction

Our wildly successful live 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. Please attach it to the back of the game box.

The fee is a flat $3.00 per item entered and goes toward paying for WGGCon. Buyers may pay cash or via PayPal or Venmo.

Dr. Finn’s Games

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 doctorfinns@gmail.com for more info.

Kozz Games

Kozz Games, publisher of Dark Tomb, Yoz and Oversiege is a proud sponsor of this year’s WGGCon. Game designer Andy Bergmann will demo Dark Tomb and share a sneak-peak of the upcoming adventure, Bloodthorn Island.

Tiny Towns “Flip & Place” Game

Peter Horoszowski will host a game of Tiny Towns on Saturday at 2:00pm. No experience is necessary, and we only have room for up to 1,000 players so make sure you get a spot!

Croton Point Pointless 5K

Start your Sunday off at 10:00am with a 5K fun run through beautiful Croton Point Park. Host Jimmy Trube will introduce a unique gaming element to the run and prizes will be awarded.

Geek & Gaming Trivia

Stephanie and Sean Richards 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!

Health & Safety

WGGCon attendees are encouraged to vaccinate and welcome to wear masks. If you are not feeling well or begin to experience symptoms of COVID-19, please do not attend WGGCon.

WGGCon T-Shirts

WGGCon t-shirts are available onsite for $25. For those who pre-ordered the discounted t-shirts before the deadline ($20), please see Elliot to pickup and pay. Please wear your shirt for the group photo on Saturday.


WGGCon is paid for entirely with donations. 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 set a firm amount because we 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.

Please note that the donation is separate from cabin rentals and t-shirt sales.

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 $10 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 five lots; you don’t need to be present to win.

See you soon at WGGCon!
