Texicon seeks to support: game manufacturers, those game stores that are friendly and welcoming to all gamers and game
types, and gamers who are they themselves welcoming and inviting to all people. It will do this by providing a friendly and fun
atmosphere for everyone to interact, which will allow the gaming community to become enriched and grow.
All attendees must remember that we are sharing the hotel with other people. Respectful and adult behavior is required in all
areas of the Hotel. Any participant who does not act appropriately will lose his convention privileges and will be asked to
leave. If you lose your convention privileges your money will not be refunded. You must act in accordance with hotel policy
at all times.
For our full rules and regulations please visit our Policies Page here.
Texicon links players together who do not normally have a chance to meet, allows gamers to make new friends, and allows
players to challenge their gaming skills. Each year players participate in great games. Some day we hope to be able to
award gamer type winners with a trophy. Eventually there will be a winner for each section of gaming, Role-Playing, Board,
Players in each section will be judged on: strength of competition, sportsmanship, and fellowship, and how much fun you
had. There will be an overall winner from Role-Play, Board, and Miniatures. Each would be awarded that section's medal of
honor. There will also be a convention winner. The overall convention winner will be an attendee who has participated in all
three sections of gaming. A participant must have won at least one game in each section of gaming (i.e. Board gaming,
Miniatures, and Role-Play). Competitors scores will be compared, and the person with the highest score will be judged the
convention winner and will be awarded the highly revered Kronos.
The four winners would receive free admittance to the following Texicon convention.
At least this is our vision and hopefully it will come true someday.
"Where the West Begins"
The idea for Texicon came at Anime Fest on August 30, 2008. The brothers Kevin and Karl decided it was time to bring to
Fort Worth a true game convention. Not only would this bring game stores the support they lacked, but it would also create a
place for the gaming community to meet and test their skills in tournaments. Now, players from across Texas, and other
states, can meet and test their mettle.
Texicon supports all three sections of gaming: Miniatures, Role-Playing, and Board gaming. Each year Texicon will focus on
a specific section. We have chosen to "kick off" our con with Miniature Gaming. Moreover, we believe that having a place
where multiple games occur will allow players to try games that they might not normally play, while allowing our players to
also play those games they love. Our Game Masters and Referees are excited at the prospect of teaching people to play
Texicon also hosts seminars that focus on every aspect of gaming. In these seminars, experts will speak about various
aspects of games and gaming. Some speakers will be seasoned gamers, others will be industry specialists.
We hope you will be brave enough to try a new game.
