Run Games for Arc Dream at GenCon 2018

It seems like Gen Con 2017 just ended, but it’s already time to start planning for Gen Con 2018. We hope you’ll join us there. If you do, please run some of our games!

What to Run

With the Delta Green Handler’s Guide at press now and shipping in the spring, Delta Green: The Role-Playing Game is our main focus. But we encourage you to run Godlike, Wild Talents, Monsters and Other Childish Things, Puppetland, or any of our games.


  • Event submissions begin January 7, 2018
  • Event submissions end March 10, 2018

Late event submissions continue until early July, 2018, but we strongly encourage you to submit events by the March 10th deadline in order to make sure the events make it into the printed program book and qualify for free badges.

GM Rewards

Each game is scheduled for four hours (including a little time at the beginning to introduce everyone to each other and the game) and should be open to five players (or six if you prefer). The more games you run, the more rewards you get.

  • 1 game—swag! $20 in credit toward Arc Dream Publishing products at our Gen Con 2018 booth.
  • 2 games—better swag! As above, and choose one Delta Green collectible at the Arc Dream booth: T-shirt, patch, challenge coin, etc. Or get another $20 in booth credit if you prefer.
  • 3 games—free badge! As above, and get a free Gen Con badge! Or get another $20 in booth credit if you prefer.
  • 4 games—game with us! As above, and play in a game with one of our authors at Gen Con 2018. That will depend on everyone’s schedules, but we’ll do everything we can to make it happen. If the schedules don’t line up, we’ll set up an online game instead. Or get another $20 in booth credit if you prefer.

We must submit your Arc Dream games in Gen Con’s system for you to qualify for these rewards. If you submit Arc Dream-related games on your own, that’s great! But those won’t count toward these rewards.
