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.

Support Toys for Tots at Nuke-Con 2013
Posted on: Wednesday September 25, 2013
In keeping with our mission to promote the positive aspects of games,
Please bring a new, unwrapped toy to Nuke-Con and drop it off at the collection bin on site. Nuke-Con will then transport all the toys to Toys for Tots HQ in Omaha. No time to shop? That’s okay. You can still support our designated charity by taking advantage of the ‘Tips for Tots’ donation jar available at Concessions.
For another way to donate, check out ‘Skeletal Titan’ at 9:30pm on Saturday. ‘Skeletal Titan’ is a horror RPG using Palladium’s Beyond the Supernatural system and is masterfully written and GM’ed by Steve Dawes. This premium gaming experience will be played with flashlights in a private room. The $5 donation at the table will go directly to Toys for Tots.
