Vendor Spotlight 2019

HedgeCrafts was started officially in 2017 from a need to create affordable larp gear. It grew into making gaming gear for all gamers from larp to tabletop to airsoft. We specialize in leather cases that can function for both decks or dice. We also make dice bags from leather, cloth, and even chainmail, leather journals to keep track of your characters progress or those special spells, and newly created gamer scrolls to hold both your dice, pencils, and character sheets all in one place. Just to mention a few things, and we take commissions for custom and unique items.

Door Prizes

More Games!

In addition to our Play and Win Titles, we will be giving away some pretty nifty games and other geeky prizes for attendees at our inaugural convention. Sunday at noon we will be doing random drawings for the prizes listed below. Here’s the fun part – you get your name in the hat, just for buying a ticket. Why. Because we love you. But even more than that, for every month you have your ticket prior to the con, you get your name in the hat again! So buying your tickets in January will get your name in the hat (so to speak) FOUR times!
If you already have your tickets – you have nothing more to do (other than show up and play games) – if you don’t – why not? Buy today!
*Please note: while you will have multiple entries in the drawing, only one prize is awarded to each attendee*

Game Planning

Plan out a few games in advance and let others know what you’d like to get to the table now.

We’re using a geeklist on Board Game Geek to help organize the advanced game: BGG MoonCity Con Game Planning List

(and if you’re unfamiliar w/ boardgamegeek or geeklists – check out this post that will walk you through the basics)

Don’t forget to check out our Library to see what other games you’ll have at your disposal…
