IGA services for Dice Tower Con and Gen Con now on sale!

Exciting news, everybody! As of right now, IGA demo time is available for sale to IGA Pro members at both Dice Tower Con 2017 and Gen Con 2017! Members with Pro subscriptions will have exclusive access to purchase time for both of these conventions for the next 30 days, after which any unsold time will also be available to Starter members. If you want the best spots, make sure to go Pro!


We’re also super excited that for the first time, IGA has a Convention Services Store! That’s right, no more kludgey PayPal transfers; you can shop for services right on our website, see exactly what’s available at the moment you purchase, and pay securely in one step with your credit card. We’re incredibly proud of this new site feature, but as with all new software, please let us know if you experience any difficulties whatsoever.


For those of you who haven’t used our services before: the Gen Con “vendor booth demos” are quick, elevator-pitch style game explanations at the vendor booth. We don’t have the space to have people sit down and play, sadly. If you want full games run, you should check out the “scheduled event / demo / tournament” option.


IMPORTANT: We’ve changed up the way we’re doing Gen Con event hall demos this year. At the request/insistence of the Gen Con events team, we will not be running a game library at Gen Con 2017. Instead, we’re doing scheduled events, which seem to draw larger crowds anyway, and guarantee that your game will be on the tables. This move will also help IGA secure bigger booths and better placement in future Gen Cons, helping us sell even more of your games.


We will be maintaining a demo library at Dice Tower Con, in our dedicated IGA demo/vendor room. If you’re a Pro member and you’ve ever sent us games, those games will be available for play at no additional charge. If you’d like to rent one of our demo tables for a scheduled event (and thus, guaranteed plays) you can do so also. This is a fantastic opportunity because you get scheduled event pricing with vendor booth sales opportunities, as we’ll be doing both in the same room.


We are also happy to do sales of Pro members’ games at our vendor booths for both shows. IGA takes a 50/50 revenue split for retail sales. All discounts and show expenses come out of IGA’s cut. If you want to sell games, please ensure you’ve updated your stock permissions and that we have stock in hand no later than three weeks before the convention date. Stock can be shipped to:
