(update re-released, hopefully with fewer typos).

We've just received approval from BackerKit to launch the pledge management campaign!

Here's what to expect next:

  1. We're launching a smoke text now to 5% of the backers. This smoke test is designed to find any errors in the campaign before they are propagated to all the backers.
  2. In 48 hours we'll send out the rest of the campaign surveys to everyone else. At the same time we'll open pre-orders for anyone who missed the Indiegogo campaign.

Some things to note about the surveys:

  • If you pledged multiple times, your pledges should all be combined into one. This was a manual process, so if anything looks off, please email to let us know.
  • Pledge management is where you can add on additional badges, art cards, coffee beans, more. This applies to folks who missed the campaign too!
  • Finally, pledge management is where we'll collect badge information including your account name on so we can activate your badge there. If you don't have an account already, head over here to create one

That's all for now. We're excited to see you at the con and hear about your amazing games!

Hello wonderful people,

Thanks to your incredible support we've hit our goal and ALL of our stretch goals as well! This year is going to be an amazing Big Bad Con, and that's because of your support. Thank you!

What happens next?

In August we'll begin pledge management in BackerKit. That's where you'll sepcify your Big Bad Con account for your badge, get information about scheduling online games, and sort out other details. 

In the meantime, here's a few things you can do to prepare:

  1. If you don't have one already, create an account on
  2. If you're interested in running events, head over here to Run an Event on the schedule, or here to run in Games on Demand,
  3. Book a room at the hotel.

Excited to see you at the con or online!

Hooray! Thank you all so much for your support. We funded in just over two hours and we feel the love!


From here out we're just going to make the con better and better, including bringing out out stretch goal guests, more art, and some much deserved support for our ranger captains and coordinators!
