  • METATOPIA is the place to unveil new ideas and new additions to existing material, and to share them with friends and peers, old and new.

    Join scores of Designers, Publishers, Writers, Artists and Editors for 72 hours of scheduled games, demonstrations, playtests, seminars, panels and discussions. Events will include hundreds of role playing games, story games, LARPs, board games and wargames, all of which are in some state of pre-production.

    METATOPIA is both a freeform exchange of gaming AND a tightly scheduled Double Exposure convention. Rather than having the gamemasters focus on the attendees, we have turned the tables and are creating an environment where the Players are there to focus on the Professionals! It is unlike any of our other conventions, all tied together by the top-notch Double Exposure staff, our familiar scheduling system and our world-famous Con Suite, featuring free snacks and refreshments all weekend long!

    Publishers and Designers will be cross-playtesting as part of a community peer schedule that ONLY Double Exposure could coordinate!

    Join as a Player for $20.00, and tell us your interests - we will match you up with events that suit you based on your wishes, and then let you fill up the rest of your festival experience with whatever you'd like!

    Even if your game idea consists of three pencils and a cat, you'll want to be at this exciting festival, where every Designer is treated as a star. Dust it off, show it off, and let your peers help you get it ready for the 2014 convention season!


    At-the-door Player memberships will be available for $30.00.

    Rooms can be reserved at the Morristown Hyatt for $104.00/night (flat rate) by going to the following link: https://resweb.passkey.com/go/meta2013 or by calling the hotel's main number (973-647-1234) 9-5 weekdays.
