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 hundreds of Designers and Publishers for 72 hours of scheduled playtests, demonstrations, seminars, panels and discussions. Events will include hundreds of role playing games, story games, LARPs, board games, card games and wargames.

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 Designers! 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!

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 2017 convention season!


Pre-Registration is now closed. At-the-door registration is $30.00.

The Hyatt Morristown is completely sold out at this time.


Hyatt House, our spillover hotel, is taking reservations for METATOPIA attendees. It is about 5-10 minutes from the Hyatt Morristown by car, and it has large, roomy suites at $113/night. Please contact them at 866-974-9288 or use this link to make a reservation, and make sure to tell them it is for METATOPIA and/or Double Exposure.
