What is FlatCon?

Located on the expansive flatlands that are Central Illinois. FlatCon has been Bloomington-Normal's premiere annual gaming convention since 2000.

A Note on This Site's Design

Some have asked why this new FlatCon site is done in a purple pallete color scheme. The primary color of the site is RebeccaPurple in honor of Rebecca Meyer who lost her battle with cancer on June 7, 2014 at 6 years and 11 and one half hours old. Her favorite color was purple and in honor of her short life, the Web Design Standards community decided to name a new color in her honor, RebeccaPurple. As FlatCon and Gamers for Life are dedicated to raising money to fight cancer, it was a no-brainer to adopt RebeccaPurple as the color scheme of our new site and to honor Rebecca Meyer.
