Get Out of the House! The USG Convention Showcase (November Edition)

JediCole here with the latest edition of Get Out of the House! It is my hope that this aspect of my ongoing Convention Awareness Project will aid our readers in keeping abreast of convention activities both in their home states as well as others. To date I have not found a single other website that brings every one of the conventions you find listed here together in one place. That may be in no small part due to my own passion for the convention scene here in Texas as well as nationally. Not content to wait for convention promoters to send me the info about their show I actively seek it out and post it all here for you! Comic, sci-fi, anime, toy, furry, gaming, fantasy, and pretty much any kind of geeky cons I can find are here!

And this old dog learned a new trick! From this edition forward you will notice that the web addresses no longer follow the names of the conventions. This is because the names of the conventions ARE the links to the websites! So this should appear a little more concise in the future.

And while we are talking conventions, if you are attending any of these shows we would love to hear from you. Please send us your pictures, your Tales From the Con, or pretty much anything that you wish to share about your convention going experiences.

hehehehe...yes finalizing a list like this will never happen! We listed over 400 game conventions when we thought we had them all this summer, and somehow have managed to find 10-20 more every month since then! If you are looking for a list of gaming conventions (or geek cons that include gaming) we are fast coming up on 500 worldwide conventions listed at Game Convention Central.
