Gaming is a major industry in Japan, and it’s safe to say that many anime fans know their way around a controller. Such a sizable community deserves an equally massive venue in which to carry on and compete with fellow gamers, and Naka-Kon is the best place to virtually smash, stomp, and shred with friends both current and soon-to-be. Come visit our gaming space which will feature consoles, arcade machines, tabletop games, card games, tournaments, and more, spanning through several of the Courtyard Rooms at the Overland Park Convention Center.

A priority of the Naka-Kon Game Room is to foster an environment of camaraderie and friendly competition.

To this end, we ask that Kon guests exercise common courtesy and politeness — ask before joining games, pass your controller to another guest after playing for 10–15 minutes, be gracious in both victory and defeat. Children ages 10 and under must always be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
