Fast lane to Ropecon

Pre-purchased tickets can be exchanged into wristband tickets at the Southern Entrance starting from 1 pm on Friday. Exchanging your ticket into a wristband in advance will ensure faster access to the convention area after the doors officially open at 3 pm as you can skip lining up for the ticket sale counters. Pre-purchased tickets can also be exchanged into wristbands at the regular ticket sale counters.

Intersection in Games, is Ropecon’s first academic seminar, organized in cooperation with the Game Research Lab of the University of Tampere. The academic programme starts in the morning of Friday July 27. Otherwise Ropecon opens its doors at 15:00.
