Some numbers from U-Con 2017

Hi everybody! It’s been a few weeks since U-Con 2017, and we can’t say thanks enough for coming.

Thanks to our Games Librarian Jeannette for putting together together some numbers about how you used the Games Library this year! – Last year, her records showed that 124 games were checked out (127 for U-Con 2015) but this year? 166 checkouts. Donations to the library continue to come in, so look forward to an even bigger and more diverse library in 2018! This year, our most popular games were Patchwork (one of the newest games) with 9 checkouts. Suspend was super popular with 7 check outs while Codenames followed closely with 6. Tsuro, Splendor, Spot it, and King of Tokyo all stomped in at 5 checkouts.

For more details, see her full post!

If you were too busy with scheduled events this year, don’t worry! You can still come out to check out our next Games Library Day on December 10. Thanks to everyone who’s filled out our survey about your experiences this year. You still have a few days left if you’d like to share your opinions with us!

So far, it looks like our current version of in-person ticketing is more popular than any other option. Most of our respondents won 3 or 4 tickets, so it looks like some congratulations are in order! Many folks saved their tokens for next year, so competition for games from prize support may heat up earlier in the weekend in 2018.

Speaking of 2018, don’t forget to save the date for next U-Con. We’ll see you at the same place next year. November 9-11, 2018.

And finally, thanks to our Tech Chair Laura, for running our final numbers. We’re happy to announce U-Con continues to grow 🙂 This was our biggest U-Con ever, with over 1,000 attendees!




Nick runs U-Con's social media. He got re-involved with board gaming when he found most of a copy of HeroQuest at a garage sale. His current favorite games are Codenames, Boss Monster, and Roll for the Galaxy, but he'd love for someone to show him how to play Tiny Epic Quest.
