GobbleCon Registration
What's changed and how to secure your FREE admission

What's the same

  • Friendly people
  • Plenty of Open Gaming
  • Beautiful Hyatt Hotel
  • Turkey mascot!
  • Wristbands!
    (Afer confirming your hotel room booking)

What's changed

  • NO provided game library.
    You'll need to bring your own faves, and will likely be able to use games brought by others.
  • NO organized RPG's, though Pickup RPG's are certainly welcome.
  • NO Staff Picks-Play to Wins...
    these were a substantial $$ investment that can't be replicated with the new format.
    because you paid nothing to have refunded.. which means...
  • NO Admission fee!
    You'll need to book 2 nights of hotel for your admission.

How to NOT Register for GobbleCon

2024 will see the launch of our new FREE format!

Your hotel room booking is your admission.

In 2023, we had decided to no longer produce GobbleCon. It was a lot of work, and a substantial $$ investment. Mostly we were only breaking even, and taking the risk of losing more each year with our modest - but dedicated - attendance.

But all of us, including our fans, were going to miss our Thanksgiving weekend gaming get together. So, we looked into NOT cancelling the event, and tried to find ways that we could do it with less effort, and less financial risk.

They Hyatt helped us to create space where you can come to play over Thanksgiving weekend! It's almost the same space as we've had before.
But some things needed to change, and most of those are listed at the left. The BIGGEST change is that we are no longer charging admission, but attendees will be required to STAY at least 2 nights at the Hyatt. Details below!

  • Book TWO nights at the Hyatt Burlingame SFO

    Effective Thursday Nov 28, through Sunday night Dec. 1, 2024
    Up to - and ONLY - TWO people per room will qualify for free admission!
    Parents with children will qualify the entire family as long as they book 2 nights.

  • Hyatt Rooms are available NOW for the 2024 event.

    Book your room using THIS LINK.
    Or call 1-800-233-1234 and ask for the GobbleCon rate using code "G-GOB1"
    Discounted rooms are $119 per night!

  • NO other registration steps are required pre-show.

    We will have a list of all those who booked rooms using our code.
    Just come to the room, ready to play, and we will check your name off the list.
    Qualifying attendees will then get a wristband and be all set!

  • There is NO OTHER WAY to gain admission other than booking 2 nights.

    We will NOT offer the option to purchase any one day or weekend passes.
    "Walk ups" can attend.., but they must 'walk up' to the hotel registration desk
    and book a room for a minimum of 2 nights.
