Will You Be Our BFF?

A Skepticon “Magic” 11 Amazeball can be yours!

Hi Skepticonville! We’re two months away from Skepticon 11! It’s time to reveal the thank-you gifts that we have for our most generous donors, our bestest best friends. Okay, maybe you’re thinking that we’ve never revealed our $100 donor gift ahead of time before. Well, that’s because we sometimes … shopped at the last minute and didn’t know what to get you lovely people.


But this year is different! This year we are giving you a genuine, hand-crafted Skepticon “Magic” 11 Amazeball. We’re making 47 of these beauties that you can take home to astound others with your ability to answer the toughest of yes/no questions.


That’s right, these are fully-functioning 4 inch Oracles of Limited Wisdom. Just like certain other numbered spheres we could mention, a “Magic” 11 Amazeball can divine the future, give critical life advice, and tell you if you should continue to give all your money to Skepticon forever.


To claim your Amazeball, choose the “One Hundred Dollar Skepticon BFF Donation” option when you register for Skepticon.

And if you donate $250 or more before July 1, we’ll make a custom Amazeball with the 20 messages of your choice! (Email your messages. Some size and content restrictions apply – ask us if unsure).

Hello St. Louis! What Are You Doing on August 9-11, 2019?

Skepticon is pleased to announce that we have found our new home!

Yes, after many months of searching and negotiating, we found this place:

Isn’t it gorgeous?

This is the Red Lion St. Louis City Center Hotel. A few facts to whet your appetite:

  • Originally constructed in 1929 as the Edison Brothers warehouse.
  • Converted to a hotel with 288 rooms in 2001.
  • Conference center is the 13th floor, and we’re taking over the whole thing!
  • Across the street (literally) is the transportation hub for St. Louis, with the MetroRail ($4 from airport), MetroBus, Amtrak, Greyhound, and Downtown Trolley ($2 all day).
  • Oh, and the view’s nice, too.

We have a place, now we just have to fill it with the very best in Skeptical / Sciencey / Humanisty / Social Justicey / Nerdy / Dino education and fun. And we need one more thing:


(and maybe some donations would be nice)

So, mark down August 9-11, 2019 on your calendar apps, paper calendars, or clay tablets, and get ready to party with us in St. Louis! Click this link here to reserve your swanky hotel room today!
