Signup Shuffler

KublaCon’s Game Shuffler™

With over 800 scheduled events – not including organized play – our Game Shuffler and Event Database gives interested players a fair chance to play in several of their favorite games over the weekend.
RPG’s (Roleplaying games), some LARPS, Scheduled Tabletop Events (TBL) and certain special events will require our lottery system called the Game Shuffler. All other events such as collectible card games, miniatures, etc., use signup sheets.

ONLINE SHUFFLER SELECTIONS OPEN OPEN APRIL 1, 2019

Which Games get Shuffled?

Shuffled events are marked differently whether you’re viewing the event online using our event search system, or whether you’re viewing the event in our PDF or printed program book.

  • WHEN VIEWING EVENTS IN THE PDF OR PRINTED PROGRAM BOOK
  • All events have an ‘Event ID’ – number that is unique to that event.
  • If the event ID has an Asterisk (*) at the front of the number, then you MUST sign up for that event through the Game Shuffler.
  • WHEN VIEWING EVENTS ONLINE
    The event description of the individual game indicates whether it is a shuffled event.
    Near the bottom of the event description, near “More Info”, are words that say “Signup through the Shuffler” if the event is shuffled.

Create an online account to use the Shuffler

If you don’t plan to play in any Shuffled RPG events, you don’t need to create an online account
However, if you do, we encourage you to log into your current account, or make an account online before the show.
You may still want to make an account even if you don’t plan to use the Shuffler, because it’s also a tool for helping you find – and keep track of – events/games that you might want to join.

It also gives you the opportunity a few weeks before the show to pre-submit your Shuffler choices for games that are run through the Shuffler.

You are permitted to have ONE account only for submitting Shuffler Choices. Any violation of this one account rule is grounds for expulsion from the convention with no recourse or refund.

Your online account is NOT associated in any way with your paid convention registration. You can create a NEW ACCOUNT HERE.

Submit Shuffler requests online

BEFORE you submit Shuffler Requests, log into your account, and search for events that you want to play in, and note the EVENT ID of those events.

Remember that NOT ALL EVENTS ARE SHUFFLED! Only the ones as noted above.

Once you have a list of shuffled events that you’d like to try to get into, visit the Shuffler Requests page.

Use the pull down menus to select your 1st/2nd/3rd choice for each period. Be patient, as it takes a few moments to load!

It does NOT HELP YOUR CHANCES to select the same event as all 3 choices!

Once you’ve selected the events you want, hit the “Submit Choices” button, and you’ll be shown the events you’re currently requesting in the Shuffler.

You can submit requests online until APRIL 15, 2019

We will be running ALL PERIODS PRIOR TO THE START OF KUBLACON in 2019.
We will only be Shuffling some of the spots in a given game. For instance, in an RPG with 6 player spots; we will Shuffle 4 and leave two for onsite Shuffling and drop-ins. The Shuffler will be run by May 15, 2019 so that many of you will know PRIOR to the show, what games you got into.

Shuffler requests at the show

If can’t submit request online because the Shuffler is closed, or for other reasons, you can submit them at the show at our Shuffler Kiosks

You will use the SAME ACCOUNT as your online account, so please be prepared with your login name and password.

Also come prepared with your list of games and visit one of the Kiosks in the Grand Foyer. Please do NOT place yourself at one of the Kiosks and begin browsing through the program book to find your events! Be courteous to others, and prepare your event choices before approaching the Shuffler.

The hours of the Onsite Shuffler Kiosks are:
Friday 1pm-9pm,
Saturday 8:30am – 7pm,
Sunday 8:30am-3pm.

Event Signup Periods

The schedule of events includes the signup times for various blocks of games, or sessions. Please note that you may signup for events in ANY PERIOD that hasn’t reached its cutoff time. Prior to a period’s cutoff time, you will create/log in to your account and indicate your top 3 choices in order of preference for events that fall into the signup period.

What this means… is that you can choose to submit requests on Friday afternoon for events that happen ALL WEEKEND. Submitting your request early DOES NOT HELP you get into an event. Our Game Shuffler doesn’t factor in the time of your request.

You CAN MAKE CHANGES to a previously made request by logging into your account before the deadline, or you can make changes at one of our Kiosks on-site.

Posting of Events

Approximately 1/2 hour after the close of a registration period, we will post the game assignments outside of Area 2, in the lobby. We will post each event and the individuals assigned to the event, and we will also post a list of the individuals with their corresponding game assignment.

If you don’t get one of your 3 choices, you can attempt to enter on a “stand by” basis, taking the place of “no Shows”, by checking into the event in the room where it is taking place. If you get into an event, be sure to arrive on time, as all events will be run on a very tight schedule.

Results can also be viewed online, or by logging into your account.
