This year’s theme is late 20th century Retrofuturism (think but not limited to; Cyberpunk, Satanic Panic, Tales from the loop, and retro tabletop gaming). If you run games in other genres we love you too and will schedule you, but we do want to promote this years theme.
Attention game lovers, masters, and facilitators alike! Games on Demand will be in Philadelphia this week for the first ever PAX Unplugged. We will be running a variety of indie tabletop RPGs, starting new games every two hours. We hope you’ll join us for a game- no experience or materials are necessary!
You’ll find us in Room 105AB, below the open gaming. We’re open from 10AM till Midnight Friday and Saturday, and from 10 AM till 2 PM on Sunday!
We’re also still looking for some volunteers to help fill our tables and bring the joy of indie games to the masses. If you love running games, volunteering is a great way to share that game you love. As an added bonus we have dedicated tables and delightful hosts that help gather up players. It’s nothing but wins all around!
If you have a few hours to spare please reach out to or volunteer coordinator Brian Liberge through our contact page. If you have at least 8 hours to spare we even have a few complimentary badges to give away, but supplies are limited.

This is our third year for Games on Demand at U-Con Gaming Convention. The track is being organized by Roger Edge and myself. As usual, Leonard Balsera will be running games on the track. We also have Cam Banks and Whitney Beltrán in attendance this year, and I’m sure they’d love to see some of their games in the Games on Demand room.
Please help us to grow Games on Demand presence at U-Con and register to run a couple games. You only need to commit to 6 hours of events to get a badge.
