At Con Events
From Atari to XboxOne we have at least one of every console set up at all times to be played by everyone. There you have access to our personal libraries that can be checked out under your badge id!
If video games aren’t your thing walk on over to Table Top Tavern where there are scheduled events but also plenty of tables with full access to This is Geek’s library!
The world of ESports has long been part of the video game culture. At 2D Con we will be hosting tournaments for both the casual and the experienced player. We recommend you bring your own controller. Our library will be open for check out but once they are gone they are gone!
For 2018 we legally have the ability to do cash tournaments so we will be having lots of internal discussions while planning tournaments this year!!
All 2D Con sponsored casual tournaments are free with your membership purchase so pick up your joysticks and bring your game face because it’s on like Donkey Kong!
Our Market is the area for all your physical game needs as well as art inspired by your favorite games! From classic hard to find games and consoles to the latest table top and deck expansions to a new plushy friend! We will have everything you need to advance your gaming lifestyle: regardless of the genre. Stop by all of our amateur and semi-professional local artists. Variety is an area of pride here with many different artists working in different mediums and styles.
Come on by and add a piece to your fandom collection without breaking the bank!
Is there something you are really hoping to find that you didn’t see last year? Send us a note about it!
Indie Island inside of 2D Con is home to local independent developers. Indie Island is a great place to find new up and coming games and talk to the people who made them.
2D Con is a charity fundraising event, all proceeds above our initial operating cost are donated to charity! 2D Con is 100% volunteer based. Alongside the contribution made when 2D Con memberships are purchased we also host a silent auction!
Our sponsors have been generous enough to donate items such as signed artwork, rare collectibles, video games and gaming paraphernalia.
Our charity auction runs all weekend long and can be found in the back of the Market! Each item will have a starting bid and a buy it now amount.
Item bids will be cut off 12pm on Sunday of the convention. Items must be paid for and picked up before the end of the event at 5pm on Sunday of the convention.
Parties are a staple of the Minnesota convention scene. Hosted by fellow con-goers and gaming fans, 2D Con’s room parties will mean more screenings, music, games, food, etc! The party rooms will occupy the first floor cabana rooms around the pool of the hotel. Each room will have its own style/theme!
