ArmadilloCon is a literary science fiction convention held annually in Austin, with several hundred attendees.
We are a place where the smartest people in the world gather to celebrate their uniqueness and intelligence. Oh, and we talk about books too.
The primary focus of ArmadilloCon is literary science fiction, but that's not all we do -- we also pay attention to art, animation, science, media, and gaming. Every year, dozens of professional writers, artists and editors attend the convention. We invite you to attend the convention especially if you are a fan of reading, writing, meeting, sighting, feeding, knighting, and all the other things folks do at a sci-f/fantasy convention.
As an added bonus, we are the week after DetCon 1, the 2014 North American Science Fiction Convention (or NASFiC). Swing by Austin on your way home and meet the group that previous Fan Guest of Honor Patty Wells calls "those crazy Texans".

To participate in the RPGA games, you must first register for the convention and pay the registration fee and also register for the RPGA events. This is two separate registrations. You must do both.
We're looking for all sorts: RPGs, Board Games, Card Games, and Miniatures.
