Rules and Terms

We believe People + Games = Better Communities, Families, and Relationships.

The most important rule of FallCon is to have fun! That said, we do have a few policies that help make the Con a safe and enjoyable space for all gamers.

Guidelines for Good Conduct

The following is the short form of our Anti-Harassment Policy. Please also refer to the full statement.

For clarity and for everyone's comfort, you should always...

  • Be respectful of other people's personal space and physical comfort. This includes ensuring you have their consent to touch or embrace them
  • Be sure you have a person's consent before you photograph or record them
  • Be respectful in all forums and discussions, but particularly those that may relate to issues of discrimination or representation. It is your responsibility to participate in a respectful manner and be considerate of all attendees
  • If you are asked to stop behaving in a way that is interpreted as harassment, you are expected to stop immediately
  • If you witness unacceptable conduct, ask the offender to stop and/or immediately notify one of our Organizers (identifiable by a yellow lanyard or a hat with a colourful feather)

As attendees, you share responsibility for contributing to a great gaming experience for all!

COVID Safety Protocols (as of June 1, 2022)

Proof of Vaccination is not required to attend FallCon35, in alignment with current City and provincial regulations. However, COVID is a contagious disease that continues to circulate in the community, resulting in serious symptoms for some. Attendees are encouraged to wear a snug-fitting mask covering their nose, mouth and chin. Our COVID-19 protocols may be revised without notice in response to government policy or at the discretion of the FallCon Gaming Society.

Change the name or email address on your badge

You can update your name and address from your Tabletop.Events account. Click on your email address in the top right hand corner. Select Preferences & Settings and click the confirmation sent to you by email. You will now be able to edit your name or email address.

Transfer for badge to another person

If you have purchased a badge, you can give the badge to someone once you are connected as friends in Tabletop.Events. Log into your Tabletop.Events account. Click your email address in the top right hand corner. Select Friends and search by name or email address. Click Give, then select the badge. They will receive an email notification and must log into Tabletop.Events to accept the badge. They will not be able to sign up for events and access their own schedule.

I bought a badge for someone else. How do they sign up for events?

In order for them to sign up for events independently, you must "give" the badge to them. They require a Tabletop.Events account in order to manage their own badge. Send a friend request to someone else who has created an account with Tabletop.Events. They accept the friend request. The "Give to a Friend" action gives them the badge and the ability to choose their own events.
