Chupacabracon is the premiere desktop role playing and board game convention in the greater Austin area. Held at the Wingate by Wyndham Hotel & Conference Center in Round Rock, Texas, Just North of Austin, proper. The convention is the primary fund raising event for Austin Creative Pathways. Our goal is to foster youth into creative careers through gaming.

Chupacabracon is a small event, pulling visitors from around the country. We are known for having an unusually high number of professional guests for an event at our size. We are routinely hosting 25 to 30 industry guests; writers of many of the top RPGs. Being a small event of no more than 500 attendees, this is a unique opportunity to meet the writers, many of whom run their games at Chupacabracon.

We also host many special events. D&D Adventure League and Pathfinder Society regularly host unique, special events at our little convention. We have also hosted Savage Saturday Nights every year from our inception. This is an evening of games run by the authors of Deadlands, East Texas University, Savage Rifts, and many other Savage Worlds settings. We hold an interactive celebrity game, where audience members can pledge to the charity for the opportunity to shape the story, make the rolls for the celebrity players, and otherwise make their session more interesting.

We have been told, from attendees and industry guests both, that Chupacabracon is their favorite event of the year. Come join our family of gamers at our next event.
