Video Gaming Rules


General Video Game Room Rules

Failure to adhere to these rules may result in your expulsion from the Video Game Room and/or NekoCon.


Please keep your mask on at all times in accordance with local regulations and NekoCon policy.  True gamers only need to see the fear in their opponents eyes, anyway.

Be a good sport

Share the games and no cheating.

Keep it clean

Keep all food and drink away from the games, and throw away any trash in proper receptacles.

NekoCon is not responsible for your stuff

Please keep an eye on your personal belongings, and leave any valuables in a safe place like your hotel room. Any found items will be taken to lost and found at the Info Desk.

Walk, don’t run

There are a lot of cables and delicate equipment, and we don’t want anyone to trip or crash into anything.

Do not mess with the equipment

If something (i.e. console, controller, TV, etc.) isn’t working properly, please inform one of the Video Game Room staffers. Do not tamper with or attempt to fix any hardware yourself. If you are found in violation of this rule you may be held liable for any damages incurred.

Personal Controllers

The use of personal controllers is prohibited. To check out a controller, please see the Video Game Room staff at the main table near the Video Game Room entrance.

Wireless Controllers

To check out a wireless controller (i.e. Xbox, Wii, PlayStation, etc.) please see a Video Game Room staffer at the main table near the Video Game Room entrance. Picture identification (i.e. military ID, state driver’s license/permit, etc.) and your NekoCon badge will be required to check out a controller. When you are finished, please return the controller to the main table to receive your ID and NekoCon badge. PLEASE double check before you leave that you have the correct ID and badge. We request that you sanitize your hands prior to receiving a controller and after turning a controller in.

Sharing Controllers

We don’t recommend passing controllers off to other players. You will be held responsible if the controller goes missing while loaned out in your name. If someone wishes to use your controller when you are finished, please take them with you to the main desk so that we can issue it in their name.


Make sure to visit the Video Game Room to view and sign up for a tournament! Sign ups will be available in the tournament area on the day the tournament is held (unfortunately we do not allow sign ups for future days tournaments – i.e. you cannot sign up for Saturday tournaments on Friday). System information will be provided at sign up. The tournament schedule is subject to change with or without prior notice. Default button configuration will be used for all tournaments unless otherwise mentioned. Check out our schedule for the list of tournaments!
