Welcome to the Queen City Conquest!

The Queen City Conquest (or QCC) is a gaming convention, taking place Sep 9 - Sep 11, 2016, at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center. We welcome all types of gaming, including Role Playing Games, Board Games, Video Games, War Games, and more. Join us for a fantastic weekend of gaming enjoyment. This is our fifth year, and we are looking forward to another great convention with you.

We're on Facebook. Let us know you're coming!

Kickstart My Con's Heart




That's the sound of a steady heart-beat, and you could be the one responsible for making sure that the Queen City Conquest has a strong pulse. This year we're running a Kickstarter campaign and we need you to help Kickstart this Con's Heart. Here's how you how you can be involved.

Hoist Sail and Weigh Anchor! QCC is Back!

You were sent a group email from http://live.queencityconquest.com/.

Arr! Welcome to another year of Conquest! This year, our convention happens
to land on "Talk Like A Pirate Day", so our theme this year is
"Pillage and Plunder". Pirates like alliteration, or so I've
been told.

Queen City Conquest, 2014 will take place from September 19th through
September 21st, 2014. We are at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center for
our third year. And Event Submission is now open to the public! To submit
an event, you must be logged in on the site with an active account.

Closed for the Season

OK, folks. All the bodies have been counted(over 260 of them), and we are officially closed for the season. We'll be opening for more business on January 1st, 2014.

We raised $570 this year in our Charity Auction. I placed the order for Child's Play Charity to benefit the Women and Children's Hospital of Buffalo, NY.
I selected as many items as I could afford from their Amazon Wish List, in order of priority, as determined by the hospital.

Thank you to everyone who donated.

Travel Advisory: The Metro Rail


NFTA-METRO has a construction project going on that may affect any passengers riding on the rail downtown. Anyone coming from south of Church Station will need to switch trains in the middle of their commute. Anyone coming from the north should be ok. Remember, Lavayette Sq. Station is the nearest station to the convention center.

Hope to see you all there.

I Hate Policies

I received an email recently, asking about my convention's harassment policy. I replied back that we don't have a written policy, but the unwritten policy is 'Don't Harass Anyone.' This goes hand-in-hand with the general purpose "Wheaton's Law".

I asked the person what brought up the question, and I was referred to this website: http://whatever.scalzi.com/2013/07/02/my-new-convention-harassment-policy/ with the comment 'Some people need help telling right from wrong.'

Badge Sales are Closed

We have officially closed down badge sales.
You will have to buy at the door if you haven't done so already.

[All] Website Problems for QCC, Extra Day of Badges

You were sent a group email from http://live.queencityconquest.com/.

Hey, folks.

So, normally, I try very hard not to send you a lot of emails, but this has
been such a weird day, and I need to reach as many of you ask I can.

At about 5PM Eastern today, our site went down, due entirely to my own
stupidity. I'll post details about exactly what went wrong later, but
for now, just know that I tried to get it back up as soon as I could, but
the entire system ended up getting wiped out.

[All] Last Day for QCC Badges Online

You were sent a group email from http://www.queencityconquest.com/.

Hey, Folks!

Today is the last day you can buy your badge for QCC at the discounted
online price. After today, you will have to pay full price at the door.

Hope to see you all there.

The After Party

We are having an after party for the convention this year.

As soon as the doors close, we are all going to stagger over to Pearl Street Brewery to relax, swap war stories, and let our dice cool off over a cold beer.

Join us for the party. We'll have room for everyone.

Sunday, people will start arriving between 5 and 6, and stay until we get tired of looking at eachother. This will be a pretty low-key event. If possible, we may even get Sean Patrick Fannon to tell the Danny Boy story.

See you all there.
