Also, for every working game you bring you get a weekend pass, a super-awesome exclusive personalized badge & lanyard, access to the Contributors Only Preview Night, a ZapCon shirt (if you bring 5+ games), early access to the game room Sat. & Sun., and our eternal gratitude for being an important part of the AZ arcade/pinball community.

We’re also looking for sponsors/advertisers and vendors. If you’d like to get your name or business in front of the Southwest’s classic gaming community, this is great and affordable way to do it. email wes [at] zapcon [dot] com if you or someone you know is interested.
