Chaosium Con Frequently Asked Questions

What are the convention dates?

13-16 April 2023 - we're adding one extra day compared to the inaugural event in 2022!

What is the location?

The venue is the same as the first Chaosium Con - the Ann Arbor Marriot Ypsilanti at the Eaglecrest Golf Resort and Convention Centre, 17 miles west of Detroit Metro Airport (DTW), Michigan.

What is the cost?

USD$100.00 + Tabletop Events Processing Fee.

GM Badges are free, but there is an expectation you will commit to offer 12+ hours of game sessions over the course of the four day event.

Can I get a Single Day Ticket?

No, we are not currently selling single-day tickets. If you are interested, please contact us.

What about future Cons in other places?

Based on the success of the first Chaosium Con we may have similar cons at different times and places, including overseas. For now, this is the North American location.

Will a lot of the Chaosium team be there?

Yes, many of us already have it on our calendars.

What kind of events will the con feature?

The focus will be on all of Chaosium's games, past, present, and future! Lots of games, freeforms, and seminars. It's your chance to meet many of our authors, artists, and editors. 

Feel free to contact us with event suggestions, especially if you want to help run them. Events submissions is also live if you would like to propose events you'd like to run.

We will not have any events specifically for children or a child play area.

There will be a special room rate at the Ann Arbor Marriot Ypsilanti for Chaosium Con. This room block will open later. If you have bought a Chaosium Con ticket you be emailed as soon as the room block opens. If you want the special rate please do not book early as you will not get the discount.

What about Covid Restrictions?

We will follow all local and State of Michigan public health advice with attendee safety in mind.

Chaosium Con 2023 Event Spotlight: Indie creator print titles will be available at Chaosium Con!



Great news: to show off the extraordinary talent in our community content programs at DriveThruRPG, we'll have a selection of print-on-demand titles from the Miskatonic Repository and the Jonstown Compendium available to purchase at Chaosium Con in April!

The Miskatonic Repository is Chaosium's platform on DriveThruRPG for independent creators of gaming material for the Call of Cthulhu tabletop roleplaying game. It was launched in December 2018. We recently celebrated its 1000th independent title!

The Jonstown Compendium, established in December 2019, fulfils the same function for gaming in Greg Stafford's world of Glorantha with the RuneQuest RPG, along with the QuestWorlds, and 13th Age Glorantha systems. We recently celebrated its 250th independent title!

You'll find the POD titles we've selected for sale at the Chaosium booth in the Great Market (dealer hall), while stocks last.


  • Can you hold books in reserve for me? Supplies are limited – once they're gone, they're gone! (NB: we may restock our dealer table from time to time during the convention). If you missed a book you want, you can always order it from DriveThruRPG.
  • Can you have this format available for me? To make things easier, we will stock each book in one format only, usually Standard Colour Softcover (where this exists). If you want a Premium Colour Hardcover instead, you can order from DriveThruRPG, but the price will be higher.
  • I can't make it to Chaosium Con, can you ship me a printed book? No - but you can always order all of our print-on-demand community content titles direct from DriveThruRPG yourself.
  • Can I sell my own POD books to customers without going through DriveThruRPG? No, as the publisher, we've made this special promotional arrangement with DriveThruRPG.

Chaosium Con 2023 is over: a note of appreciation from Bridgett and Rick


And so Chaosium Con 2023 is over - what a wonderful weekend it was was! Convention coordinator Bridgett Jeffries writes:

When I reflect back onto Chaosium Con 2023, I am immediately overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude. A massive thank you to every attendee, GM, exhibitor, volunteer, member of staff, and fan who made this incredible event possible. For so many of you, Chaosium Con 2023 was your very first gaming convention. My heart absolutely overflows with joy (and relief) in speaking with you guys... because you told me that you're coming back.

You told me that you're coming back... and that you'd be bringing friends! Not only is that a massive compliment to the company and convention organizing staff... but I'd like all of you other attendees who assisted with cultivating an environment where new gamers and new attendees felt safe, welcome, and seen to take a bow.We are all us. And y'all proved it again this year at Chaosium Con 2023.

Let's do it again! Say, about this time next year?


-- Pic by Marc McVey of the tribe gathering for the 'mix and mingle' welcome party on Thursday night --

And Chaosium president Rick Meints had this to say:

On behalf of all of us at The Chaosium, we would like to thank all the members of our tribe that joined us in Ann Arbor for 3 days of all manner of Chaos(ium). Although weary after so much fun we are also energized as we look forward to returning next year. Without our tireless volunteers, GM’s, and staff, this annual event would not be possible. A hearty thank you to all that added to our collective enjoyment.

Here's what attendees have said about last month's Chaosium Con: click through for their full reviews about the wonderful weekend we all had in Ann Arbor!

"What I found was nothing short of a sublime environment and experience. A community unlike any I’ve ever seen before. A sense of camaraderie that, if we could bottle it, we could probably solve world peace or something." 
— Matt "Doc" Tracey says he didn't know what to expect at his first-ever gaming convention, which was Chaosium Con 2023.

"These two days saw a gradual accumulation of attendees, some of whom were old friends, and many who would become new friends."
— Call of Cthulhu 7th edition co-author Paul Fricker.

"The show felt like a really good size, big enough to have lots of events, but intimate enough to easily run into people again and have time to chat with each other."
— Bayt al Azif Magazine.

"I'm a massive fan of ChaosiumCon... I love the content the company puts out, I love the people I've gotten to meet in the process (both as employees of the company and those who simply love their games), and I have had an exceptional time both years. So yeah...very much looking forward to year three."
— Bucho, Under a Black Rainbow.

"ChaosiumCon was awesome. Saw some old friends I haven't seen since the Before Times. Got to meet several friends I've only known online. And got to meet a lot of new friends." 
 Seth Skorkowsky.

"I came out of ChaosiumCon with some cool loot, a mix of new books and auction items plus a few extras, like some prints of Katrin’s art, or a copy of Khan of Khans... (and) I’m happy to have completed the achievement of playing every single currently published Chaosium game in one week-end."
— Ludo from The God Learners Podcast.

"Chaosium Con is a gathering of friends, a thriving community, and a fount of infectious delight. If you’ve never been or never even played one of this company’s great games, you should come next year."
— Keeper Doc, Prospero House.

Chaosium Con will be back next year: we hope you can join us!
