Rules of Play
At Rocky Top Game Con, the safety of our guests and participants is our top priority. Entrance into the convention is granted by a limited, revocable license at the discretion of The Play Promoter LLC. All individuals may be subject to a safety search of their person and belongings upon entry. Decisions made by Rocky Top Game Con are final.
For the comfort and safety of everyone, certain items are prohibited at the convention, including animals (excluding service animals), coolers, drones, fireworks, outside food and beverages, arrow tips, pole arms or staffs with metal tips, professional or commercial cameras and recording equipment, sporting equipment, laser pointers, and outside alcohol or drugs.
Part 1: Decorum Policy
We value respect for individuals, as well as authority. Please follow the instructions of our staff, as their requests are intended to benefit everyone. Be considerate of vendors and refrain from disturbing them while they are assisting other customers. If a vendor closes their booth early, please respect their space. Please review the list of attending vendors before making a purchase and notify us of any concerns.
For attendees under the age of 13, a guardian must accompany them at all times. Only authorized vendors are permitted to sell Rocky Top Game Con merchandise.

Rocky Top Game Con promotes a diverse and inclusive gaming community. We have a zero tolerance policy for hate speech or organizations that perpetuate hate and violence. Any symbols of hate found on clothing, tattoos, jewelry, bags, miniatures, or any other visible item will result in removal from the event and may lead to a permanent ban from future events associated with CPPG, Rocky Top Game Con, or The Play Promoter LLC. Hate speech will also result in disciplinary action.
Part 3: Dress Code Policy
Costumes are encouraged and welcome at Rocky Top Game Con. However, costumes must be in good taste. All attendees must be properly attired and wear shoes at all times. Costume masks that cover the forehead to the nose are acceptable as long as the eyes are visible and vision is not impaired. The Play Promoter LLC reserves the right to refuse any weapon or costume weapon that is deemed inappropriate or unsafe.
Costumes may not display any hate symbols as defined in our anti-discrimination policy.
