U-Con is a large southeastern Michigan gaming convention held every year since 1988. Up until this year it had been held at the Student Union of the University of Michigan in downtown Ann Arbor Michigan. It attracts gamers not only from Southeast Michigan, but from across the United states and several other countries as well. U-Con offers a wide variety of role-playing events, board and war games, Live Action RPG's and collectable card game tournaments and events. It is one of the largest gaming conventions in Michigan.
Due to rising hotel rates, increasing administrative and parking hassles, and worst of all, conflicting schedules with major Michigan home football games taking over the town at the same time, this year marks the first year it is being held elsewhere. However, the new location is a marked improvement. If you are in the region the new amenities may be more to your liking than in previous years.
The new location is the Metropolitan Hotel, in Romulus near Detroit Metro Airport (31500 Wick Rd., Romulus, MI, 48174).
Improvements over previous years:
They need all the RPG events they can get. They'd like to make this the biggest year ever and you can get your weekend pass for free if you run at least one event. Read the GM information and then if you're ready to go, read about submitting an event.
