Another voice for the Math Trade. I would do it myself if I had a bit more experience. Maybe next year...

Bryce Con was good people and good fun. Heard this is like a larger version of that, run by similar folks. However, I'm NOT driving 10 hours to this one, so hope y'all have more fun!

You can sign up for tournaments and other events on the SaltCON Website under Events -> Events and Tournaments Sign-Up, here:

SaltCON Events Signup

Some of the events don't have a signup before the convention, you sign up on the day of, or just show up. Werewolf will likely be a game where you can just show up, it is being hosted by Meeple Nation.

We do plan on playing multiple games of both Werewolf and Two Rooms and a Boom. If we need to cap the first game we will give preference to those that have signed up through the website.

If you have never tried Artemis, you should check it out!

Join the crew, and go on a starship mission on the bridge of a spaceship! Choose your specialty: Helm, Communications, Engineering, or Weapons Control. Or do you have what it takes to be the captain?

We are excited to have an Artemis Bridge setup at SaltCON, where you can signup with your friends to try out this unique adventure system.

Thanks to Quint Wheeler for making this happen!

SaltCON 2015 T-shirts!

We would like to thank Alexander Montgomery for the creation of our SaltCON 2015 t-shirt design. Thank you!!

We also want to thank Hastur Games and Comics for being our SaltCON 2015 T-shirt sponsor! Their support is why we can offer the shirts at such a great price!

http://www.hasturgames.com/

This year is going to be totally different than previous years.
This year we have women's and youth shirt sizes along with our usual selection of men's shirt sizes. We also have multiple color choices!

The other difference is there is only a few days available to pre-order your shirts. Feb 23rd is the day the store closes. I apologize for the short pre-order time.

Women's and youth sizes are only available by PREORDER!

Colors other than Athletic Heather, grey, are only available by PREORDER!

T-shirt's available for sale at the convention will only be men's sizes and only available in grey!

T-shirts at the convention will increase in cost by $5 per shirt!

Pricing: pre-order only
$10 for all sizes up through XL
$13 for 2X and 3X
$15 for 4X
There are no tall sizes available. There are no sizes available larger than 4X.

Payment:
You will be ordering the shirts through a web store link but payment will NOT be made during that ordering.

We will be emailing out individual payment links from the pre-order information from the web store.

All shirts are available for pick up only at the registration table during the convention.

Here is the link:

No one has offered to create a virtual flea market geeklist yet, this year. I think it would be a great idea. We can set up a time to exchange virtual flea items on Saturday like we've done in the past.

I thought that it was super fun, last year. Did the virtual flea market get set up after the Math trade? Is that what we need to wait for?

I was planning on starting the Virtual Flea Market pretty much as soon as the results for the math trade go up, if everyone's okay with that.
