The 6-2-1 rule is a convention guideline whose history is lost in the mist of science fiction fandom's past. One story attributes the creation of the guideline to Bob Passovoy, MD of the Dorsai Irregulars.[1] The rule has been in use in the furry fandom since Confurence.[citation needed]

The rule mandates the following:

  • 6 hours of sleep per night.
  • 2 meals per day.
  • 1 shower per day.

These numbers are just minimums; the intention is that people should feel free to exceed those numbers. The third part of the rule is to prevent con funk.


At Anthrocon 2007, the Dorsai Irregulars proposed a new variation of this rule:[2]

  • 6 miles walked per day.
  • 2 snacks per day.
  • 1 nap per day.
