Tokyo Attack!

Tekko is proud to partner with Tokyo Attack, enriching our game room with a variety of music-themed Japanese arcade games.

Tokyo Attack is a collaboration of music game enthusiasts looking to give back to the community and share rare music games with people who will normally never get a chance to play them. They all started off as private collectors, building a collection of the games that were closest to them. As time went on, they saw a demand for their games at a variety of conventions, and noticed the machines being currently supplied were not always in the best of condition. Wanting to give back to the community in hopes to strengthen it, they decided to brand themselves and help spread their investment into this genre to rest of the public.

Role-Playing Games

In the RPG Room, we aim to give guests unique experiences in the games they play. This year we’ll be adding to this with new games such as Leverage and the Dragon Age RPG.

Returning will be the "d20 Grab Bag" series of games where players won’t know what game they’re playing until they sit down!

In addition, RPG Guy Mike will be returning with his video game inspired games using the 5th edition of D&D’s rules. This year he’ll be running, in addition to Monster Hunter, a new set of games based on the popular Kingdom Hearts series! These games are limited to 4 players only so be sure to get there early!

LARP

Run a game at Tekko!

This year, Tekko is expanding its LARP (Live Action Role Play) department to encompass additional styles of game play and LARP discussion panels.

GMs interested in running a game should complete the preliminary form. Once the deadline has passed, the form will close and the LARP department will choose games that are appropriate for the Tekko demographic. (Note: games are by no means limited to anime or pop culture themes. There is an existing anime LARP track, and we are adding new games to appeal to different audiences.) The LARP department will contact GMs with approvals or rejections, or to request further information.

Form submissions close on 1/31/20 so that games can be accepted and placed on the schedule for advanced registration.
