What does TengaiCon mean?
The founders of TengaiCon were interested in Japanese culture and wanted to create a name that was related to Japan and also to Kansas.

With our location in the middle of the Konza Prairie where the horizon seems to stretch forever, we found a Japanese word (or kanji) that we liked.

The meanings for that kanji are: "horizon; distant land; skyline; heavenly shores; remote region".

This is the Kanji we are using:
How long has TengaiCon been around?
2006 was the first TengaiCon. However, some of the same organizers were involved with setting up Kansas Game Day 2004, which was a great success. After the 2006 TengaiCon, the Organizers created a board of directors to run additional cons.
