The Omaha Area’s Premier Gaming Convention
What is Nuke-Con?
Nuke-Con is a not-for-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to promoting the positive educational, social, and entertainment aspects in all types of gaming hobbies.
Games offer reading, listening, and kinesthetic learning opportunities featuring counting, strategy, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Gathering together offers the opportunity to further the community of learning.
Once a year we host a family-oriented three-day convention that attracts people from all over the country. We also run several one-day game days during the year.

Your Chance to Elect A Director to the Nuke-Con Board
Posted on: Sunday September 21, 2014
Two of the seven seats on the Nuke-Con Board of Directors are elected by you, our Nuke-Con community. Each of those two Directors serves a two-year term. Anyone with a named Nuke-Con badge can cast a vote for the new Director at the Registration desk during the convention.
This year we have one nominee: Steve Dawes. Here’s what he has to say about himself:
I’ve been involved in the local gaming community for over twenty years. I attended the first several Nuke-Con’s while attending on-and-off again since. I host several games and panel events at Nuke-Con and its Aftershock events annually (including the “in the dark” game event Saturday nights). I was a special guest writer at Nuke-Con in 2012 as a game designer and adventure writer for Palladium Books. In recent years I’ve become a Nuke-Con staff member, the panel coordinator, the media handler for the Nuke-Con Face Book page, and I help maintain and update the Nuke-Con website. I also work at “Spielbound”, the recently opened board game café in Midtown (local gaming is as much a part of my employment as it is my enjoyment). I feel that I’m a good candidate for the Nuke-Con Board of Directors; I will take my responsibilities and duties seriously and with pleasure.
Don’t forget to vote! Ballots will be available on Friday and Saturday till close. We’ll announce the 2015 Board of Directors at the open Board of Directors meeting, Sunday morning at 10:30 am.
Pre-registration closes tonight!
Posted on: Tuesday September 16, 2014
Only a few hours left to get badges at the pre-registration rate! After tonight, you’ll have to buy your badges at the door! Weekend badges are $30 through today and $39 at the door. Not sure if you are already registered? Just login and visit your profile page or contact Josh via firstname.lastname@example.org. Not sure what to do with the money saved? You could make a child’s Christmas brighter by purchasing a toy or game for our charity, Toys for Tots!
Nuke-Con Board of Directors Election
Posted on: Thursday August 21, 2014
This being an election year, the Nuke-Con Board of Directors decided that we should get in on the game, too.
Our Board allows for up to 7 members. Five of them are selected by existing Directors. The other two are elected by you, the Nuke-Con community. Every year you vote for one Director, who serves a two-year term.
It’s time to nominate candidates for the term that runs from October 2014 to October 2016. To qualify to serve, you have to be in good standing with Nuke-Con and over 18 years old. You can nominate yourself, or you can nominate someone else. Nuke-Con will contact the nominee to confirm that s/he is willing to serve, and then s/he can begin campaigning. Send your nominations to the Nomination Coordinator before Monday, September 15.
The election is held during the annual convention. Anybody with a convention badge is a member of the Nuke-Con community and is eligible to vote. One vote per member, if you please!
Nuke-Con is very interested in involving as many different people as possible in the management of the organization and the convention. Now is your chance!
So just who (or what) is 9th Level Games?
Posted on: Tuesday July 22, 2014
The Kobolds are coming!
9th Level Games (9LG) began as a small-press publisher and designer of humorous role-playing games (RPGs). The company was founded by Dan Landis and Chris O’Neill while in high school together in Philadelphia. Even now, we’re just these two guys from the suburbs of Philadelphia making games in the basement (often literally in the basement).
9th Level Games is known for Kobolds Ate My Baby!(KAMB!), the BEER Engine game system, and the first edition of the Ninja Burger RPG. We have developed both the Warhamster and Cthulhu for President role-playing games and numerous supplements for other systems.
We’re also responsible for SATAN! Your New Favorite Game. We apologize.
On a more personal note:
We make games, because that’s the best game.
Come on out and meet the guys behind 9th Level Games at Nuke-Con this year.
There will be Kobolds. So. Many. Kobolds.
