Age Policy

Teen Games & EventsWe welcome all teens from 13-17 years old to attend Big Bad Con 2017. We are happy to announce the new Teen Games & Events Track for young gamers! Big Bad Con supports roleplaying games for all ages. We believe that young gamers need age-appropriate games, and all gamers should play in an environment where they feel comfortable expressing themselves freely.

To attend teens will need a permission form signed by a parent or guardian. This can be filled out in advance or at the con!
