Tournaments with cash entry are paid online or on-site at the convention inside the game room. All tournaments will have a limit by the number of entries and do tend to fill up based on the popularity of the game.

2022 List To Be Posted By August 25th.
Bits To Bytes Gaming and Computer History Museum was established in 2016 to preserve the history of home and arcade entertainment through working examples of retro gaming consoles and other gaming curiosities. Bits to Bytes boasts a mobile museum comprised of more than 100 traditional and handheld consoles, computers and peripheral devices from across every generation of gaming that can be viewed and played with.
The museum goes beyond a cursory look at the gaming industry and tries to include as many examples from video gaming’s rich history as possible. You won’t just find an NES or Genesis at the museum, but a range of devices including numerous Pong-style machines to lesser-known consoles like Milton Bradley’s handheld Microvision. The museum aims to showcase everything it can related to gaming from Atari to XBOX from all across the world.
San Japan is setting up an Indie Gaming section for the convention. Furthermore, it is completely free for Independent Game Developers and comes with one complimentary badge. You can promote your game to the over 20,000 attendees.
Restrictions apply. This section will be for game demonstrations. The complimentary table section will not allow the selling of games. If you wish to sell the game please inquire with San Japan on an Indie Game Booth.
At San Japan we will have a tabletop section with dozens of games to demo along with a large section to allow fans of CCG/TCG games to play against each other. There will be tournaments throughout the weekend. The tabletop area will require a convention badge in order to participate in all free play and tournaments.
