Farmageddon is an annual game convention held in Farmer City, Illinois at the Farmer City American Legion. We feature an atmosphere that is more like a game night with friends than a standard convention. We have a full kitchen and full bar on site with a relaxed, sound-controlled room that allows you to hear your GM and socialize without disturbing games.
Our event lineup consists of Pathfinder Society, Starfinder Society, and D&D Adventurers League..
We donate all proceeds to the local scouting and other youth supporting organizations. Scouting is a great way to develop character, leadership, confidence, and practical skills in our youth. Funds from Farmageddon help provide those opportunities in many ways from camp and membership fees to food budgets and awards. This is the genesis and primary motivation for the event.
Farmageddon is hosted by the Knights of the Octagon, a local gaming group that has been active for about 16 years with player experience going back over 40 years. Many of the players have been active in the local scouting organization for years. We're gamers like you, but first of all we're proud moms and dads.
All of our events will be posted on Warhorn.net for registration and sign-ups. Events will be posted first just for GM acquisition, then after Winter War weekend, player sign-ups.
Fees are by day. $10 for Friday only, $15 for Saturday only, and $10 for Sunday only, or $25 for the whole weekend. We don't do GM credits, we do GM gifts. As the organizer, I pay my $25 for the weekend whether I play or not. It's for the kids.
Farmer City is located between Bloomington-Normal and Champaign-Urbana at the crossroads of Interstate 74, US 150, & Rt 54.
Farmer City American Legion features a full kitchen where we take pride in offering a variety of different homemade food. Their full bar has a great selection of beverages, including adult beverages at small town prices.
There is free WiFi and an ATM on the premises for food and con purchases.

The Holiday is newer. Costs a little more, but there haven't been any complaints about it.
Since there is a licensed bar at the American Legion, NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL IS ALLOWED. The Legion will enforce who is served and who isn't.
Again, our atmosphere is game night with your friends. So don't do anything you wouldn't do at your friend's house. Well, this is a public space, do better.
Please no loud swearing, violence, bigotry, or otherwise obnoxious behavior. And we obviously do take pictures and sometimes post them on this site and Facebook. We don't edit so don't embarrass your mother.
The bartenders go the extra mile, with drink specials like Dragon's Blood and Goblin Juice. Also, all other drinks are small town priced.
Beautiful facility and even more attractive attendees.
We have a full kitchen and cook fresh to order. Great themed items such as our Dragon Fingers (tastes like chicken).
