Code of Conduct

GameSchoolCon's Code of Conduct is a living document and Blind Chicken, LLC reserves the right to amend it at any time.

All registered guests, exhibitors, staff members, volunteers, speakers, demo teams, Gamerunners, and other participants are expected to demonstrate respect for the space we are occupying and the other people who are sharing it.  Specifically, this means abiding by the following rules:

  • All attendees must wear their badge so that it is visible to staff members and volunteers.

  • Please do not bring outside food or drink (not purchased from the hotel) into conference space, and be mindful of food and drink in gaming areas.

  • Return all Board Game Library game components to their box and return games to the Board Game Librarian before the BGL closes each evening.

  • Be respectful of the hotel space and their hardworking staff.  They are our partners in creating this event for all of us. 

  • There is no childcare provided at GameSchoolCon.  Make sure you know where your children are and what they are doing.  

  • Monitor your belongings and turn found items in to the info/registration desk.  GameSchoolCon is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

  • Underage alcohol or marijuana use may result in expulsion and no refund will be issued.

  • No illegal drug use of any kind at GameSchoolCon.  Violation may result in expulsion and no refund will be issued.

  • There is no smoking or vaping allowed anywhere within the hotel building.  Go outside and use designated smoking areas.

  • No weapons are allowed at GameSchoolCon, including tasers, "decorative" knives, or sword canes.  Violation may result in expulsion and no refund will be issued.

  • Cosplay weapons (only nonfunctional props allowed!) are subject to inspection and tagging by GameSchoolCon staff.  

  • Cosplay and street clothes alike must, at minimum, cover body parts usually covered by a bathing suit, and clothing that depicts sexual or violent imagery or language, including profanity, is not allowed.

  • LARPing, Quidditch, Nerf battles, etc. must be organized by conference staff or volunteers.  Violation may result in expulsion and no refund will be issued.

  • GameSchoolCon strives to be a safer environment for all people regardless of race, gender, class, religion, size, or ability.  If you are not able to leave your racism, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, ableism, classism, or any other form of bigotry at home, please stay at home and do not attend GameSchoolCon.  Harassment, bullying, or mistreatment of other GameSchoolCon guests, staff, volunteers, Gamerunners, demo teams, or hotel staff may result in expulsion and no refund will be issued.
