Cogs Con 2012


It’s time to spend some time in Nerd’s Paradise. Join us at Cogswell College on Saturday, April 27, from 10AM to 6PM for Cogs Con 2013 – a celebration of everything that makes our student body special. Visiting artists, alumni and students will fill the Dragon’s Den with their handiwork and considerable talents. Admission Tickets are $5 online and $10 at the door.

In addition to the displays of art, games and craft items a host of activities are scheduled throughout the day. Check out the exhibitors already confirmed.


Child’s Play at Cogswell Arcade is a charity event that is being put on by a group of Entrepreneurship students at Cogswell College. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness and funds for the local charity, Child’s Play. “Child’s Play seeks to improve the lives of children in hospitals around the world through the kindness and generosity of the video game industry and the power of play.”

The event will be located inside Cogscon during the entire festival and will be a hub of gaming glory! Throughout the day there will be a plethora of activities for Cogs Con attendees to enjoy including three main gaming experiences: Dungeons & Dragons, Warhammer 40K Tournament, and a couple crazy games of CLUE, where participants are encouraged to dress up as their favorite character.

In addition to the three main events there will also be a large amount of random gaming activity including decks of cards, other board games such as Sorry, Hungry Hungry Hippos, Monoploy, etc. and a group of Classic Video game consoles (Sega Master System, NES, Nintendo Gamecube, and more) for all to play throughout the day.

To take part in the three main game events there will be a required donation to Child’s Play of at least $5. All other games and activities will be free to play, but we will have tablets and computer stations open and available for ANYONE to make a donation.
