Play-to-Win Program, Cosplay Contest, and More!

Greetings Gamers!

The new year is upon us and it’s time to share a few quick updates!

Play-to-Win Program
We’re excited to announce that there will be a Play-to-Win Program at Coulee Con 2017! If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of play-to-win, here’s the gist. Attendees check-out and play a copy of a game from the Play-to-Win Library. After playing, each person fills out an entry form for a chance to win the game that was played. On the final day of the convention, there is a drawing for each of the games in the Play-to-Win Library (everything must go!). We’re planning to have about 20 different titles in the Play-to-Win Library and will have more next year if the program is successful.

Cosplay Content – Sunday 1pm
Also new this year will be a Cosplay Contest on Sunday at 1pm! Categories will be Family (infant to 7 years old), Youngsters (8-12 years old), Young Adults (13-17 years old), Adults (18 and up), and Group (all ages). Prizes will include free passes to Coulee Con 2018. For basic costume guidelines see the attendee policies page on our website. If you plan on participating, let us know! And don’t forget that if you Cosplay, you earn free drawing tickets!

Seeking Sponsors, Vendors, and Artists
We’re currently seeking interested sponsors, vendors, and artists for the 2017 convention. We greatly appreciate the support these organizations and individuals provide. If you have previously sponsored or vended at Coulee Con, no further action is needed. However, if you have not and would like more information, or if you know an organization or individual that might be interested, please contact

Have an Idea for an Event?
We’ve started to draft the master schedule and work out details for large planned events. We welcome ideas for other events that might be a unique addition to the Con. If you have an idea or suggestion, please let us know!
