The world famous boxplay event Cardboard*Con has been roiled by cardboard controversy and cardboard confusion this year in the wake of a supposed “2021 global cardboard shortage”. Eternal members of the convention have been leading the protest, citing a lack of information from the convention’s leadership, demanding to know if the convention has been canceled.
Did you hear?? Attendees of the 2020 edition of Cardboard*Con were awarded with a surprise Star Trak themed badj with a complimentary deluxe Cardboard*Con lanyard!

A Brut Gold box was created explicitly for Luc Belaire and transformed into a valuable gold time capsule (“Tim Capsule”) for the 10th Annual Cardboard*Con. Trash artist Captain Drew claims that it was his “most profound” work yet, but he was drunk. All the coolest attendees of this year’s special con signed the time capsule. It is hoped the capsule will then be stored in the Smithsonian. Failing that, it will be stored in Captain Drew’s basement.
The Generic Cardboard Space Adventure was the 10th installment of an ill-advised campaign to rally workaday men and women to escape the routine of their normal day by donning cardboard costumes and gallivanting around downtown Atlanta, Georgia, to the delight and confoundment of boring people who don’t know how to wear cardboard.
Jurassic Box was the 9th installment of this American science fiction convention, dedicated to encouraging fossilized nerds to dress up in cardboard costumes. 2018’s theme, “Jurassic Box”, was the least effective cardboard pun yet. Despite this fact it was expected to bode well for attendance, which typically numbers in the dozens. The convention had become so successful that it generated a string of successful sequels, despite the vehement refusal of Steven Spielberg to contribute a large cash infusion. Numerous articles based on the convention have been written by various news outlets, in spite of their best judgment and the strenuous objections of their editorial staffs.
