GAMING DEPARTMENT HOURS:
Board Game Library
From quick and simple all the way to thought provoking strategy, our game library has something for everyone! Sample a huge variety of board and card games and make some new friends. Board games are free to rent – we just require a photo ID as collateral while you play. We’ll happily teach most any game in the library, but you can also check our scheduling board for what demos are being presented throughout the weekend. Come and play with us!
Ever wonder what it would be like to go toe-to-toe in some anime-style dodgeball? Try the revolutionary augmented reality esports attraction, Hado by Nebula Amusements! Itching to face off against fellow game enthusiasts in some video game tournaments or maybe just play a casual game of Mario Kart? Nexus Gaming Alliance has all your gaming needs covered with dozens of options and systems available for open and organized play!
Come ye adventurers, new and old! Talented Game Masters will be available throughout the weekend to run quick demonstrations from all different kinds of systems for the curious and short adventures for those who’d like to be a little more immersed. All ages are welcome (kids 12 and under must please be accompanied by an adult). Check the schedule at the gaming library for more information and to sign up for your session!
The talented Puzzle Quest team is back this year with another adventure! Puzzles are placed all over the convention waiting for the cleverest among you to solve them.
Search for clues, unlock locks, and keep your eye on the coveted prize at the center of the chest - it might just be yours! Stop by the Beyond the Board table up in gaming for more information.
CHECK OUT WHAT ELSE IS GOING ON IN GAMING!
in a Box
Want to challenge yourself and a group of friends? We have the entire collection of Unlock! games available in our library this year! These escape rooms in a box require a free app that you can download on your phone or tablet to play and are a great way to pass an hour with some family or friends.
We are happy to teach you any game that we have in our library, but we also have several featured games that we will schedule for demonstrations throughout the weekend. We also partner with indy developers to bring new gaming opportunities here to the show for you to experience for yourself! This year, you can check out Sour Grapes and a new kickstarter from High Alloy Games and a brand-new kickstarted game, Manic Mages, from a local designer!
Check on the whiteboard in the gaming section for demo times!
