You're trapped in a labyrinthine library full of monsters and obstacles.
You can recruit your favorite female book characters, both fictional and historical, from the books themselves to help you escape.

Who are your favourite AMAZING women? Both real people and fictional characters.

Library Labyrinth is a board game in which players overcome monsters and obstacles with the help of amazing fictional and historical women. Perhaps Nancy from Swallows & Amazons will team up with Cheng Yat Sao to get past a kraken? Can Joan of Arc kill the Triffids, or Mina Harker and Marie Curie work together to defeat plague? Your team is made up of the books you pull off the shelves, and there’s a brilliant woman inside each book.

We’re looking for the most amazing women to include in the game. And that’s where we need some help. We’re all white British women (there are only three of us in the team), so we all heard the same fairytales when we were younger, and we’ve read similar books. We want the characters in this game to be as varied and diverse as possible. So we’re especially interested in amazing women from all over the world.

Please share this post as widely as you can to help us get a truly global list of amazing women!

Our Story

GeekGirlCon is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Staffed by 50 volunteers, GeekGirlCon works to empower women and underrepresented groups to pursue their passions—whether they love science and technology, comics, literature, gaming, or anything else! Everybody is a geek at heart, in one way or another. Our mission is to ensure all these geeks are supported, welcomed, and encouraged to pursue what they love.

GeekGirlCon’s largest event is a two-day convention that gives geeks and their supporters the opportunity to build a community, share facts and fandom, and learn how they can help promote the role of women and other underrepresented groups in geek culture. We also bring people together through social media and events in the greater Seattle area. We have a lot of fun doing this, although we aren’t afraid to also tackle some serious topics related to gender equality.

What makes us different from other events is one simple concept: conventions and conferences should include content for less-represented identities; this includes a focus on the contributions of women. Sure, our emphasis is on female geeks. But our real goal is to promote a culture that brings EVERYONE together to share their geeky quirks; celebrate the role of women in science, technology, media, and gaming; and build the next generation of strong, powerful geeks.

I miss being an Agent. Here is me with last year's wonderful coloring book.
Thank you so much for putting all this online. I wonder if it would be worth doing some online things when we are also able to get back together for a in-person con. Which I do miss and will definitely be at when we can safely do one again.
This guy has been at many cons over the last few years, including GeekGirlCon under the name Outnerdme. Sharing in case there are more victims out there. https://pamplinmedia.com/pt/9-news/479863-387519-beaverton-man-facing-child-porn-prostitution-charges
First off, if this post isn't appropriate for this page, please delete it and refer me to a more appropriate place. Now I know we're all big on that representation matters, so here's something you can do to implement that in the time of COVID. (She also made a heartwarming video for Kelly Marie Tran, which I also highly recommend)
Look who’s on NPR!
When will you guys have Artist Alley applications open?
Do we have a date for 2020? Trying to work on my calendar. And want to make sure I leave a spot to vend. We love doing the event!
Happy New Year from the OddPetz Emporium https://fb.me/oddpetz
Any idea when the vendor applications for 2020 will be ready?
Super fun film series alert! PARANOID DATA, this weekend at Northwest Film Forum: Johnny Mnemonic and Strange Days (both on 35mm), Scanners, WarGames, and Videograms of a Revolution. '80s–'90s films that speculate about emerging relationships between humankind, machine, and information. Who's ready for the singularityyy?!
Fellow #GGC19 attendees... On day 1, did you adopt a new plush friend from #CarefulItBites and then lose it? Were you parked on the orange levels of the convention center parking garage? If so PM me with its description! If your description matches the plush friend I found all alone on the ground, missing its human, I will happily figure out the best way to get them to you.
Hey! If you could schedule next year’s GGC NOT on the same weekend as Kumoricon, that would be great. I haven’t been able to go to GGC for a few years because of it...and I miss it but Kumoricon will always be my priority...would love to attend again! :)
