Who We Are

We are the Role-Players Guild of Kansas City (RPGKC), a 501(c)(7) nonprofit tabletop hobby gaming advocacy organization dedicated to enhancing gaming in Kansas City and the surrounding areas since 1990. One of the largest game clubs in the midwest, we maintain relations with many game companies, industry luminaries, local game shops, and Midwest gaming groups. We play mainly role-playing games and board games, along with some miniatures, card games and live-action role-playing games (LARPs). Our members play at Guild-hosted events and often arrange their own game sessions. The majority of our members reside in the Kansas City metro area, with some located across the nation. New players welcome!

Membership dues support the organization's conventions, outreach efforts, operating costs, and allows us the occasional box of staples. We enjoy an all-volunteer staff of officers and committee members that are dedicated to educating the public about tabletop hobby gaming and bringing gamers together.


We host games, Game Days and gaming conventions, including ShaunCon, our annual gaming convention, running every year since 1990. Part of the Midwest GameFest, ShaunCon is four days of RPGs, board games, miniatures, card games and other events each November.

Guild Game Days

Game Days occur the first Saturday of each month at various Kansas City area game stores. Check the Game Day section for each month's location! Play sessions typically start at 10am, 2pm and 6pm. Drop in and play all day! Game Days feature roleplaying games and board games mostly on an ad-hoc basis. Signups are encouraged but not required, and organization of play is loose.
