FanimeCon Gaming Hall 2024 Experience

May 02, 2024

Hello everyone!

This year, there will be many planned changes to what the Gaming Hall will offer at con. 

  • Less PC gaming, more retro: With the difficulties of maintaining a large PC section, we have chosen to go back to the drawing board to be able to offer the best experience possible. This means that we will not have a PC section and instead will be focusing on our array of retro machines, which are coming just in time for FanimeCon’s 30th anniversary! (We plan to bring back PC Gaming in the future!)
  • Console tournament changes: We will have a focus on smaller, faster tournaments and offer more of them. There will be a basic tournament schedule provided, and they will be intended to be completed in 1 to 1.5 hrs so you don’t have to choose between programming or gaming. Keep an eye on our social media posts or ask a Gaming staffer in person for more info!
  • Returning favorites! We will still have your favorite arcades, consoles, tabletop games, mahjong tables, and more in the hall – this includes arcade tournaments such as Pump It Up with another to be confirmed!

The Gaming Hall will also have a change in hours. The hours of operation will be as follows:

  • Thursday: closed
  • Friday: 10am – 10pm
  • Saturday: 10am – 10pm
  • Sunday: 10am – 10pm
  • Monday: 10am – 1pm 

With all these changes, we are hoping to provide you with a fun Gaming Hall experience. We invite you to give us your feedback and any other questions by sending them to We look forward to seeing you at FanimeCon!
