This spreadsheet is SO useful to me; I reference it several times a month. 


Your January listings are wonky - many of the conventions listed there happened in fall 2017. Would it be helpful if I made a list? How can I contribute to what you provide? 

I was not sure how to add a new convention to the map, but 

Hexacon is a board gaming / RPG convention coming up in January 19-21, 2018 near Denver CO 


It's at the Ramada North Denver.

Thanks for the feedback! If you see data that needs to be updated, please follow the instructions above under the heading "What if I need to update data?" In almost all cases, we are willing to grant access to edit the spreadsheet.

We would really appreciate your help making our data the best it can be. There will always be holes, so we depend on our users to help provide updates.


Great idea.  I did something similar 4 or 5 months ago when trying to determine which conventions to visit to promote our game.

Consider using Google's My Maps to import the spreadsheet so the map is fully interactive.  I took the liberty of creating one to show you what it could look like.  I added a "Focus Short" column to the database so My Maps can categorize the cons by type.


I was looking through the spreadsheet and the month for IndieCade East is incorrect. The spreadsheet lists it in April when it's going to be in February for 2018.

I see your dates for GameHole Con are in January, but their website has it in November, which is when it usually is.
