Nuke-Con attendees are overwhelmingly well-mannered people bent only on enjoying the weekend. Over the years, however, we have learned that clear expectations create better events. With that in mind, anyone who attends, volunteers, or exhibits agrees to the following policies and rules.

  1. Nuke-Con attendees must wear their convention badges in a visible place to participate in any convention activities. A damaged badge may be exchanged for a new one for a $1.00 fee. Lost badges cannot be replaced; the participant must re-register at the on-site price.
  2. Because we are in a public place, we ask convention participants to be considerate of those around them and refrain from using inappropriate language.
  3. Alcohol and weapons are not permitted in the convention areas.
  4. Smoking is not allowed in any convention area. Violators will be asked to leave.
  5. Follow the GMs lead; avoid arguing with the GM or other players over rules.
  6. Any scheduled event at a given time and table or room is considered reserved for that event. If you are occupying that space, you must yield it to that event.
  7. Open Gaming tables are available on a first-come-first-served basis, but if you don’t have a game in progress, please consider giving up the table to people wanting to start one.
  8. Please do not abuse our hotels or convention facilities. This includes putting signs on walls. Locations to put public information are provided. Please contact the staff to for those locations.
  9. Costumes are most welcome, but please show good taste. Costume props may be allowed at the discretion of the convention staff. Props must be made in such a way that they cannot be mistaken for genuine weapons.
  10. Neither the Nuke-Con staff nor the Venue assumes responsibility or liability for the supervising of the participants. If the participant is a minor, supervision is the responsibility of the parent or guardian. Both minor and guardian must be registered for the convention.
  11. Nuke-Con prohibits discrimination in all convention programs and activities, excepting that events may be designated For Adults Only.
  12. Nuke-Con reserves the right to refuse service or revoke membership at its discretion, or to eject disruptive individuals from the convention without refund. Harassment of any kind is grounds for ejection. This includes physical or verbal threats; unwelcoming or annoying attention; stalking, pushing, shoving or use of physical force; behavior or language which in any way creates a disturbance that is disruptive, dangerous, lewd or generally offensive; sexually explicit or offensive language or conduct; profanity, obscene gestures or racial, religious or ethnic slurs. If people tell you NO, your business with them is done. If you continue to attempt to have contact with those people, you may be removed from the premises and your membership revoked.
