Is there a comprehensive database of US RPG conventions?
Yesterday I found out that there’s some big, new gaming convention in Chicago — ValorCon — that’s happening the same weekend as the next Chicago Gameday. I feel like competing cons (gaming and otherwise) happen every Gameday, but when I’m planning dates 3-6 months out, I can’t find any mention of them, despite Googling and pouring over lots of goofy local conventions listing sites.
The flip side is that, since we’re near a major city, it’s inevitable that there is some sort of event going on that appeals to gamers, and I just throw up my hands. “Yeah, I’m sorry MegaAnimeFuzzyKnittingCon is the same weekend; feel free to go to that instead.”
