Play Games & Discussion Pannels
Taking part in Con Plus is open to everybody with an internet connection.
All games are broadcast to YouTube, which help raises awareness of the convention and spread the word to help us raise more money for charities that so desperately need our support.
This helps spread the good work being done by the charities that the convention is supporting, and as such there is some legalise to cover regarding Broadcast Rights, below.
- Internet Connection
To participate in Con Plus you will need some basic equipment in order to play games over the internet.
Most importantly, you need to make sure you have a microphone and a set of headphones. Without headphones your microphone will pick up the sound of your speakers which creates an echo, which can be painful for other players to hear.
You can use a smart phone, tablet, laptop or a desktop computer. Smart phones and tablets usually have cameras built in but other computers may require the addition of a webcam so that you can connect more personally with the people you are playing with and improve the experience of everyone involved.
- Established Facebook Account
To help enforce our anti-harassment policy we require all participants in the convention to hold an active Facebook account, to prevent trolls and rogue accounts we require that the account has active posts from over a year previous. This helps to ensure that the convention remains a safe place for everyone involved.
- YouTube Account
If you wish to run a game for the convention your game video will be broadcast on your own YouTube channel, and may also be re-broadcast by the convention on the media channels operated by the convention.
