How to Get Achievements

If you've been to SNAFU Con before, you just might have some already! Achievements and points are based on participation. The more you do the more you get.

Please keep in mind that some things haven't been tracked before (like masquerade participation) so they will start in 2014, while others (like peace bonding) have detailed records back to 2010. So if you're missing something you think you should have, you can contact us, but we might not be able to help you.
